Yoga & Beyond | The Yoga and Movement Science Podcast
About This Show
More critical thinking. Less dogma.
I started this podcast to share engaging discussions that stimulate our thinking about WHY and HOW we teach. For me, the "beyond" part reflects how yoga fits into to the bigger picture of human movement and science. I interview authors, biomechanists, physical therapists, pilates teachers, rolfers, chiropractors, yoga teachers, anatomy teachers and more, all with the goal of expanding our knowledge about the body and how we move. There's a lot of misinformation in the yoga world (and fitness world) and I hope to cut through that to provide more grounded, science based information.

Y&B #53 - Distal Mobility for Proximal Stability
How does ankle instability affect the knee? In the previous episode Jenn Pilotti and I discussed proximal stability for distal mobility - how core stability affects the knees and ankles. But what about the other way around? How do distal joints affect more proximal ones? Many movement professionals work from the ground up, thinking about how the foot and ankle affect the rest of the kinetic chain. This is one of the few studies Jenn found that examines how the ankle affects the knee and landing kinematics. We review this study and talk about our own ankle injuries and working with people who have ankle issues. Yoga teachers often say it’s all connected. This paper touches on an aspect of that, namely how the ankle (a distal joint) affects the knee (a more proximal joint).

I love this podcast. I have learned so much and been exposed to new ideas and teachers. Indispensable on my journey as a yoga teacher!
