Cora Geroux - WOKE Yoga

On today’s episode I talk with Judith & Lizzie Lasater. Judith has been teaching yoga since 1971, she’s dubbed the ‘restorative yoga queen’ and was one of the first independent yoga teachers in california. Judith is the co-founder of yoga journal magazine, and is currently writing her 10th book on yoga and related topics. 

Lizzie, Judith's daughter has been practicing yoga since she was in the womb, and now teaches restorative yoga teacher trainings all over the world. Lizzie and Judith have also created a depth of incredible online courses that you can find at lasater.yoga

This is such an incredible episode, and I was so honoured to have the chance to speak with both Judith and Lizzie together. It was so fun to witness their energy together, the lightness and love that Lizzie has for the practice, and judith’s wisdom after 50 years as a teacher. 

In this episode, we discuss:

  • The difference between yin yoga and restorative yoga
  • The physiological benefits of restorative yoga
  • The emotional, psychological and mental benefits of restorative yoga
  • Restorative yoga as a backdoor into meditation
  • The four conditions we need for relaxation
  • How dance can be a form of meditation
  • How to use restorative yoga to balance the Ayurvedic doshas - vata, pitta & kapha
  • Lizzie’s yoga adolescence and her practice now
  • Judith & Lizzie’s experiences with the image conscious LA yoga scene, self loathing and eating disorders
  • How to create a long term, sustainable yoga practice - and what that really looks like 
  • Why you might need to seperate your yoga practice from your daily exercise routine
  • How to measure the success of your yoga practice
