Ep 67: Your Movement is Your Lived Experience with Peter Blackaby
Today I’m talking with Peter Blackaby who is the author of the book Intelligent Yoga which he is currently writing the 2nd edition for. Pete started practicing yoga in 1978 and began teaching in 1986. He then went on to become an osteopath. In 2002 he became involved in the British Wheel of Yoga (which is the governing body in England), and ran a two-year teacher training program for them. Since then, Pete has been running courses for teachers and teaches functional anatomy and biomechanics in the UK and internationally. His interest in the last 15 years has been to put some scientific underpinning to the practice of yoga, both in the biomechanical sense and in the mind/body relationship. In today’s conversation we’re talking about moving away from the Western reductionist view of anatomy, what a bottom up approach to yoga looks like vs. a top down approach, how the whole person’s lived experience is tied into how they move, and how yoga teachers can approach working with students who have chronic pain.

Essential listening for body people
This podcast consistently changes how I think and feel about my body. It informs me in a way which positively affects my yoga practice and teaching, my everyday movement, and my experience of my body generally. The interviewees are fascinating and include many leaders and paradigm-shifters. The interviews are well-conducted and structured with a really helpful practical spin. If you are interested in how your body/mind really works and how you can move and live in your body with greater ease, this podcast is essential listening. Really can't thank Brooke enough for putting this together week after week.
