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.

Modalities we talked about:

Functional Range Conditioning, Z-Health, AMN Academy, Integrated Kinetic Neurology

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. We had a great and diverse conversation that went from travels around the world, writers block, formal yoga practice and paying attention to that which has been obscured, The Roll Model and the Coregeous ball, yes or not to headstand, SAID principle, FRC and being in control, practicing surrendering, from surviving to thriving, social media implications, being raised in a liberal environment and working with traumatic brain injuries.
