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. The "beyond" part reflects how yoga fits into to the bigger picture of human movement and scientific research. In the first 50+ episodes I interviewed authors, biomechanists, physical therapists, pilates teachers, rolfers, chiropractors, yoga teachers, anatomy teachers and more. The new format of the show features discussions about published research on yoga and movement. The format has changed but the goal remains the same: to expand our knowledge about the body and how we move.

Y&B #63 - What's the best hamstring stretch? Comparison of four techniques
Dec 12 17
How often do your students ask for help with tight hamstrings? In this episode Jenn Pilotti and I discuss a study that compared 4 stretching techniques for greater hamstring flexibility. This study from the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research compared two active stretches and two passive stretches in 100 people over the course of 8 weeks. It’s clear that one resulted in the greatest gains. We discuss the results here and in our Yoga Research and Beyond review.
