Erin Jade is a Yoga and Movement Teacher, Massage Therapist and Applied Neurology Educator with a mission to spread brain-based perspectives into the world of Yoga and Movement via online courses and a monthly membership. Her writings about the business of teaching yoga and challenges of transitioning into other modalities inspired her serialized audiobook as a podcast The Whole Beautiful.
In this conversation Erin takes us in her personal story growing up, teaching Yoga and as a Massage Therapist and transitioning into Brain-Based Education. The struggles, the realizations, the relevance of neurology in our modern movement landscape, the importance of training the visual and vestibular systems, and the potential of training neurologically for athletes, adults and beyond that, for children. We talked about plank and the core, diastasis recti, and the love for movement beyond labels. Erin introduces us to body and brain maps, and pain science. We talk about FRC and Z health and the importance of range of motion and joint mobility.

In this episode, Trina Altman talks about her beginnings in Yoga and Pilates, her trip to India, how she created Pilates Deconstructed® and Yoga Deconstructed®. We also discuss the state of Yoga, how much it has evolved through exposure to social media, about the importance of connecting and sharing opinions and of evolving beyond the black and white perspective. We discussed her interdisciplinary approach, the importance of practicing a variety of movements and learning from teachers that encompass the big picture. I asked her what does yoga postures mean to her, and we talked about Matthew Remsky's new book and the subject of abuse in the yoga world.

Sarah is a deep thinker and a mature and grounded Yoga Teacher based in Philadelphia specialized in adaptive yoga and classes that help people slow down in these times of increased acceleration.
