Huberman – Stretching, Pain, Tumors and Yoga

Huberman – Stretching, Pain, Tumors and Yoga

Stretching is an aspect of yoga, but to equate yoga with stretching is a common mistake and an ongoing problem for the yoga profession (despite pop yoga culture’s obsession with stretchy hamstrings and “open hips”). Gratefully, neuroscientist Andrew Huberman understands this (to some extent) – “Practitioners of yoga don’t just learn movements, they learn how to control their nervous system in ways that really reshape their relationship to pain, to flexibility, and to the kinds of things that the neuromuscular system was designed to do.”

Dirty Socks, McMindfulness and Yoga

There’s a lot to contend with at the moment – which means I have to be even more vigilant about getting to the mat. There’s nothing fast food about regular yoga practice – it’s just not quick and easy, it’s messy, time consuming, and hard to prioritize. Which is why it’s worth it.

Yoga Futures (My Latest IAYT Article)

I’ve spent a ridiculous amount of time with Brett (my partner in crime) talking about this stuff, reading too many academic articles, staying up late writing, and generally annoying each other over details and word choices so that we could put out an article for the International Association of Yoga Therapist’s (IAYT) publication Yoga Therapy Today.

Yoga in the Nauseating Metaverse (Part 2)

I ran over to the yoga studio space. As I approached a woman’s voice gets louder. She’s teaching a completely inaccessible, hypermobile, “hip opening” class which peaks with a crazy horizontal split. But, I am told I can’t participate because I don’t have a mat and I need to go get one from the Alo store.
