What others are saying about Exposing Yoga Myths:

“Going to make this Embodied Yoga Principles Teacher Training required reading.”
–Mark Walsh http://integrationtraining.co.uk/

“Love this book…. The headstand/shoulder stand one is my fave, should not be taught in general class… I haven’t taught either of them in my general classes for a few years now.. I dig into this e­book daily.”
–Jackie Quayle  BWY Foundation Course Tutor http://www.theyogabank.co.uk/yoga-teachers

“We have very little research on the biomechanics of yoga, it’s nice to see what actually is happening versus what we’re have been told is happening….”
–Lauren Smith Reese http://www.laurenreeseyoga.com/

Of course this is my new favorite book by Ariana Rabinovitch, Melissa Gutierrez & @Kim-LienKendall. So well written…can’t wait for Volume 2!
–Trina Altman http://trinaaltman.com/

“I just recommended it yesterday to a friend currently considering doing Yoga Teacher T raining with a well known, but rather dogmatic organisation.”
–Catherine O’Mahony http://www.coyoga.org.uk/

Exposing Yoga Myths is necessary to stop diluting our profession and expose those that propagate practitioners who lack knowledge in order to turn profit.  Young, inexperienced teachers fresh out of undisciplined 200‐hour trainings are being shoved into the pipeline unprepared and unsupervised. I’ve experienced first‐hand how they are being shaped by outdated, inbred corporate programs that repeat psuedo-science, teach set sequences that discriminate, administer aggressive hands on adjustments, and set up unsuspecting students for a future of injury and pain. This debunking is a gift from women who are intelligent, give a sh*t, have integrity and are brave enough to shine light into ideas that novice teachers and students blindly trust.  Thank you for your work to reclaim our profession Ariana, Mel and Kim!!

Let’s face it,

The traditional esoteric yoga teaching model isn’t for everyone.

There’s so much insight and benefit we can gain from research and science…for ourselves and our clients.

With over 3,500 “accredited” YTT programs out there,
churning out 15,000 new teachers every year,

We can expect little more than a fast-food approach to a deeply healing modality.

You need more than just a one-dimensional understanding of yoga and movement to:

 Stand Out as an exceptional Practitioner

 Create a client following based on your unique set of results

 Be confident in your ability to help others move intelligently so they can feel better

If you’re ready to move past the surface model of teaching:

Pseudo-scientific claims, constant inner peace, lululemon pants and the latest juicing recipe,

then dive deeper into the science of movement with…

    Love this book, look forward to it coming out in hardback…. The headstand/shoulder stand one is my fave, should not be taught in general class… I haven’t taught either of them in my general classes for a few years now.. I dig into this e-book daily.

    Have not got the book YET.. I mayl… I am happy to see brave educators step out of the “tribe” and say, “hey wait a minute, is this safe is it ethical that I place these students in this pose” ? (To make it worse the public ASSUME the yoga teacher is all knowing) YIKES!!!
    In my mind those who bridge common sense western knowledge on how to move intelligently and bring wisdom into the class rather the origins in from the East or West, If done tactfully and objectively make the best teachers.. And any teacher that claims to no it all is a scary teacher rather your trained in the East or the West.
    By the way many true sages traveled to the West to educate and share there knowledge with us..so we did not have to travel to India, the resources are available to us.. so I see no connection with traveling to India to find the truth.. give me a break..We are all from the same source… essentially at the core of us there is no difference, rather you pray to Krishna, Jesus, Buddha.. stop trying to separate and divide.

    The girls being interviewed completely missed the value of Bhakti (Chanting) Have they ever listened to Krishna Das??? He educates what the and uses metaphor and stories.. and if they got out of there “Little box” the chants are amazingly freeing to release up-tightness.I highly recommend these ladies give it a try.. by the way just like physical habits can make us hurt.. if practiced wrong long enough. Using unskillful language.. like you girls are doing is a sloppy verbal habit.. and it can really turn folks off and if your intelligent, you don’t need to swear every other word to get your point across. Not just yoga but all authorities have teaching on the words we PRACTICE.. the swearing just makes you guys look desperate.. .you ladies sound angry.
    I hesitate to buy the book because of the above.. ever hear you catch more flies with honey then vinegar? The very people your trying to wake up. .. the diluted, under educated, followers of the herd- are going to be turned off.
    I am happy these ladies are interested in educating but the method of educating takes class, skill and compassion… Check out Judith Hanson Lasater book (she is a Physical Therapist) and Ph.D and 30 year yoga practitioner. Her book provides great detail and information in a way without offending… .Also Check into Jules Mitchel.. great teacher.. and I reference Katy Bowman’s work and Pete Egoscue.. teach intelligent yoga asana.. educate without offending and SLOWLY this crazy mind set will shift (I hope)
    Oh and I am going to say Namaste.. too me it means to acknowledge and respect and if you girls find that offending…well get over it. Please work on cleaning things up and you will make a great contribution to the yoga world.. but your current path is not going to work…

      Thank you so much for sharing your opinion with us. We totally agree. Our delivery is not for everyone. The podcasts with Mel and Kim are candid and contain a lot of profanity, however the book does not. Oh, and I’ve interviewed many of the teachers you mentioned in previous Y&B episodes – check them out.
