Laurel on Michelle Nayeli’s Movement as Medicine

Michelle and I discuss how I got started as a yoga teacher, how I realized yogasana was hurting me (because my flexibility was outpacing my strength), how and why I changed my teaching and branching out into different movement modalities like self-massage, weight-lifting, kettle bells and incorporating interdisciplinary movement and resistance bands into my practice. Additionally I name a few ‘boxes’ I see yoga teachers cramming themselves into frequently as well as why it’s important to find ways to externally load the body in order to progress strength – something that traditional asanas don’t provide a great opportunity to do.
