Results Not Typical w/ Nikki Naab-Levy

Navigating Pain & Injury in Yoga

Super excited to share that I was on the Results Not Typical Podcast with Nikki Naab-Levy where we talked about navigating pain and injuries in yoga. It's a subject dear to my heart as I've navigated injuries throughout my career as a yoga teacher & enjoy working with students with injuries.

Here's what we discussed:

  • Myths about the relationship between pain and injury
  • Why even though yoga is thought of as therapeutic, not all yoga poses or styles are appropriate when you have pain or injury
  • How to have grace for yourself if you have pain or an injury and are unable to do as much as you would like
  • My recent experience with frozen shoulder and what I've learned from it about navigating these types of long term injuries
  • Why modification and props are not a sign of weakness

Where Do We Go From Here?

My friend and yoga teacher, Francesca Cervero, featured me on her latest podcast The Mentor Sessions: Support + Strategy for Yoga Teachers.

Francesca is a private yoga teacher & yoga teacher’s mentor. The conversation we had was so poignant. We discussed big changes we think we'll see in the yoga world next year, recommendations for listeners to consider as our world continues to change, and more.

What are my thoughts on how the yoga landscape is changing? What do I think our next steps should be as students and teachers? I'd love for you to listen to the conversation!
