Episode 17: Rekindling Yoga’s Power of Liberation

5/23/2023
Liberation has been forgotten in the modern yoga movement, especially modern postural yoga, from which today’s yoga studios, yoga teacher trainings, and yoga organizations have arisen. And yet, if we put the liberation back into yoga, we can use it as a tool for liberation. While my focus is specifically neurodivergence liberation, disability liberation, and […] The post Episode 17: Rekindling Yoga’s Power of Liberation first appeared on Chicken Yogi Show.

3/28/2023
In today’s episode I do a little “shameless self promotion” by talking about a couple of sub-blogs in the Chicken Yogi universe. Please forgive the fibro fog.
