  • The tantric idea of how often one should practice in comparison to the classical yoga idea
  • Why a high level of ability in a physical practice doesn’t always translate to having your inner shit together
  • A new definition of discipline
  • What a breath centered yoga practice actually is
  • Why the “rules” of alignment in yoga aren’t backed up by science
  • How to teach large group classes with the knowledge of individual variation
