Social Media, Can It Be Done In An Ethical Way?!
One of my favorite quandaries to discuss in relation to the current yoga world. Mado from @yoga.teacher.resource podcast had me on to discuss the use of social media in the yoga landscape. .
Spoiler, I don’t say it’s always a bad thing or that it shouldn’t be used! .

Thank you @yoga.teacher.resource for having me on, it was a fun time.

Many teachers are rebranding themselves or putting out yoga formulas that seem to address some the weak spots in how asana is taught. But very few, if any address the issues in full and without gimmicks or new tricks.

I've been at the forefront of pushing for honest self-inquiry and honest re-evaluation of asana practice and have spent many years on research, integration, problem solving, and program development to arrive at what is now The DeConstruct to ReConstruct Online Course.

No gimmicks. No formulas or maps or styles. Just information that you apply in a way that works for you and your students. It’s not flashy or sexy and that’s why it works.

This year-long webinar is meticulously researched, creatively constructed and flexible enough for anyone with an interest in yoga to learn techniques and methodologies that will allow you to craft sustainable, empowering practices for yourself and your students, all underpinned by rigorous self-enquiry and grounded in ethics. The course is packed full of evidence based non-proprietary information to help evolve your understanding of the body, yoga philosophy, teaching technique, and classroom dynamics, into sustainable practices and classes.

If you’re a yoga teacher or want become one, I invite you to join the DeConstruct to ReConstruct Online Course.

I'd love to have you join the D2R Community. Registration closes at midnight tonight, sign up today.

Yep. I made a meme with ‘hat’ in place of ‘that’. But it’s kind of hilarious if you look at the irony in relation to the post context. 🤣

Being human in a comedy of errors and I love how down right messy I am. Just like everyone else.

May your snafu prone self get as big of a belly laugh the next time you bungle something up, because that’s what I just did. ♥︎

Depth of understanding and skill refinement rarely happen overnight. It’s hard work and paying your dues over and over again. Pair that with, if something needs done then do the work no matter how too good to take out the trash or clean the toilet. ...
Voila, a good chunk of my recipe for work ethic and success.

♥︎REGISTRATION CLOSES FOR DECONSTRUCT TO RECONSTRUCT IN JUST THREE DAYS♥︎ ......
Two years ago I set out to create an online course with the intention of teaching the highly researched and tested content I provide in person each and every week, I simply wanted offer it in an online format. I aimed for the online course to be as close to an in-person experience as I could possibly get.
.
I've taught online content for many major providers over the last eight years. I've learned what works and how to transmit information in a very personal way. I've also learned those platforms all have problematic components which I aimed to correct by building my own program from the ground up. I aimed to provide the highest quality experience available and to go above and beyond what was expected out of an online course. One of the drives behind creating this course was that I wanted to own and control the content so that it was never canned and could be constantly updated and adapted as new research, information, and methods arose.
.
That's why the D2R course content is brand new each time. Each video is recorded live for every new intake of participants. This means the information is always accurate, current, and based on latest research and methodology available.
Registration for this session closes in just three days.
Don't miss out. The next session begins December 20th.
.
Registration CLOSES DECEMBER 7TH at MIDNIGHT.

♥︎The DeConstruct to ReConstruct reviews keep coming♥︎ Reading all of these is making me smile smile and cry happy tears of joy.
When I set out to create and offer this year long online course I had the intention of teaching the highly researched and tested content I’ve created over the years and years of in-person work I’ve done in so many cities but I wanted to do it online. I wanted the online format to be as close to the experience of an in-depth, in person program as I could possibly get.
I aimed to provide the highest quality experience I could possibly offer, one that went above and beyond expectations, and to do it at a reasonable price and in a format that participants could visit and revisit and continue to grow from for years without the risk of expiration.
I wanted to share the information that I’d spent a decade compiling based on my own experiences of injury and struggle that would help those who wanted to participate but just couldn’t because the current construct wouldn’t allow for it. I wanted to help teachers teach anyone who was in front of them in their classes in a personal and effective way which can be very difficult in the drop in, all levels model.
I wanted to share the reasons of how and why I teach the way I do now and how I arrived there so that others could take those hows and whys and implement them in their own voice and style. I wanted to share how I had figured out how to make classes more personal, more accessible, less injurious, wiser, and that it is possible to do this sort of thing without losing the...well...the ‘yoga practice’ part.
All I can say is that Thur intentions I set out with are congruent with the outcomes I keep receiving in the reviews that have flooded my inbox. It’s working and I’m not done, the course keeps evolving and expanding and this session is going to be FANTASTIC. ♥︎ I’m in awe of the teacher’s who have taken what they’ve learned in prior D2R sessions to do work in their communities that is having a tremendously positive impact.
Join us, this amazing D2R community, for the next session that begins December 20th.
Registration CLOSES DECEMBER 7TH.

So what’s this whole course about?DeConstruct to ReConstruct is about not confusing the pose with the purpose or perpetuating the one size fits all cookie cutter pictured pose problem that exists today. It’s about learning what the poses are really constructed of at their base anatomical and physiological level plus all of the experiential qualities that they have and represent to students. It’s also a about learning what often makes the poses very exclusive, often unsustainable, and potential risky. We then recreate poses constructed of components that are based in physiology and anatomical science, rooted in applied anatomy and physiology, and that carry all the same things students love about them but without all the one size fits all, risk of injury, short life span or cookie cutter pitfalls. .
What your left with is customized shapes and limitless options that each student can pick and choose from to arrive at their own handcrafted and self composed version of the pose that full of their own wisdom and skill and that fits truly anyone and everyone that may participate in a yoga class in almost any venue. We learn all of that and then you can integrate the information through the integrations process in ways that allow you to still teach in your own voice and style and to keep the essence of your classes shinning through but while a whole new exciting landscape of possibilities opens up. .
Sign up soon. Session will close for sign ups in just 5 days on Dec07. This session begins on DEC20.
.
The one year course is worked through over one year’s time. But it’s truly at your pace, you own the contents for good, and you’ll always have access to me for all your questions and support should you need me even after the course ends. .

If you’ve been looking for evidence based, solid, clear, answers as a teacher for the issues you see in your classes, then this course is for you.

Prevent and reduce injury, create accessibility, learn how to build poses that fit each individual student no matter what, applied anatomy and physiology of the body in relation to poses, drills and activity creation tools, how to meet expectations but in way that wiser and that you feel like you own, and all the reasons behind the things your intuition said didn’t quite work before and how to right those issues, and so much more.

So often hurt feelings and competition get in the way of this conversation being had and sadly that’s how this type of thing continues to be perpetuated over and over to the detriment of all.
.
I believe everyone is doing their best, and are well intentioned. Plus there’s the added pressure of needing to eat and to pag rent and mortgages and families to care for. I also know that we all make mistakes and have blindspots and overlook things, that’s human nature. I’ve spent years admitting my blindspots as I become aware of them.
But we can’t ignore problematic outcomes just because of good intentions. As my friend Amara says, “intentions are irrelevant if the outcome was harmful”. Tough pill but one of my favorites and a motto I live by every day.
.
We have to look at the harm that comes from surface level, turn and burn, understanding being passed on and sold to people. That only creates teachers who feel like mimics.
.
I personally think being able to show your math and having it rooted in a depth of understanding that can be backed up and fact checked is rad. But that means passing on information in a way that takes time and a heck of a lot of hard work. However that creates teachers and students who can clearly state their reasoning and aren’t just parroting back info the memorized or an authority figure gave them. I love people to really feel solid in what they’ve learned, to really own it from the inside out.
.
The situation is further complicated because the yoga world’s (and world in general) systems often lack a true ability to consent, are full of structural power imbalances, and come with a lot of problematic ability to mask intentions and actuality with spiritual veneer or the buzz words and techniques of the moment. Not to mention the level of seeking that people are driven by when they feel like they’re not fully equipped or wise which makes them vulnerable to suggestion and as my friend Deb says, Shamwow marketing.
.
But if we want to change things we have to drag them out into the light and look at them clearly. That’s what a yoga practice is supposed to help with. The uncomfortable stuff.
.
So? How about it? Shall we talk? #yogaphysics

Meet @jodyawilliams who is the founder of Ocean Yoga in St John’s Newfoundland way up in northeastern part my homeland, Canada. In addition to his studio classes, Jody also teaches yoga to a lot of marginalized groups including inmates in the prison system. I was honored to have Jody join the DeConstruct to ReConstruct Course and I knew that anatomy content wasn’t his favorite, but I promised him I’d make it relevant and applicable right away.
Listen to Jody’s testimonial about what he is getting out of the course, how I succeeded in winning him over with the anatomy, and most importantly why the course’s content has worked for all of the populations he works with.💙
.
Thank you for sharing this Jody, it made my heart smile.
.
If you want to join the next session it begins Dec20, but registration closes Dec07 so make sure to sign up soon before it’s gone until July19.
