Ep. 32: Sleep Hygiene, Insomnia and Yoga Therapy: How to get Restorative Sleep
In this episode I talk about the "Sleep Hygiene" strategies that I use with my patients and clients. Good quality sleep is a corner stone of good health and our ability to heal. It impacts our memory, our mood and our experience throughout the day. Good quality sleep is also one of the first things we address when working with individuals that suffer from chronic pain.  There is a video that goes with the audio found in this podcast on YouTube: LauraGyoga: The Yoga Focus Method  You can also see a picture of the "Yoga Whiteboard" on my Instagram page @LauraGyoga ________________________________________ Laura Goellner OTR/L, E-RYT, LMT, C-IAYT www.LauraGyoga.com @LauraGyoga _________________________________________ Note :) All strange background noises are attributed to my dog Redford wanting to be involved.

Ep. 28: The Expanded Kosha Model of Yoga Therapy: Looking at the Person in Context - LauraGyoga
In this episode I talk about the Kosha model- the Layers that make up a person, which is the foundation for the yoga therapy process. I take what I have learned in my 10 years as an Occupational Therapist and expand this view to understand how a person exists in context of their surroundings and how a person's surroundings impact the layers of our being. There is an associated Yoga White Board to visualize this on Instagram @LauraGyoga and a video on YouTube at Laura Goellner's Yoga Focus Method.  Laura Goellner OTR/L, E-RYT, LMT, C-IAYT www.LauraGyoga.com @LauraGyoga _______________________________________ I have been teaching yoga since 2005 and went on to earn my certification as a Yoga Therapist in 2017.

Ep. 22 Create your Personal Meditation Ritual (that you will actually stick with!) // Grounding to Manage Anxiety & Worry // LauraGyoga
The two most frequent issues that people face with meditation: being able to settle and be still for a period of time, and finding a practice that they stick with consistently. With these two challenges in mind I set out to create a template to help people create a customized practice that will be best suited to their own personal needs.

As yoga alliance has just increased the required education for 200 hour teacher training from 20 hours to 30 hours this is a topic of debate in the yoga world.

Ep. 12: Impermanence: Suffering Vs. Gratitude When Facing Change
In episode 12 I talk about the topic of Impermanence- the fact that everything is changing and the way we understand these changes has a big impact on how we live our life. If we cling to things or resist changes this brings up suffering. If we instead focus on the curiosity of noticing how things are changing and look at them with "fresh eyes" we can settle into a space of gratitude for the experience.  If you would like to see The Yoga White Board you can watch the video format of this podcast on my YouTube Channel:   I also post a picture of The Yoga White Board on my Instagram each week:  Note: All strange background noises are attributed to my dog Redford wanting to be involved.

Ep. 11: The Internal Process of Yoga: Using Anchoring Questions for Self-Inquiry and Adaptation
In episode 11 we will talk about some of the questions that can help to anchor the mind and deepen your internal experience of the pose.  How to watch the breath and check in with body sensations to find the right version of the pose for you in that moment. These questions help us to develop stronger body awareness, strengthen our skills of self inquiry and learn to read our body's signals. This is the first step to being able to create a movement practice that is adapted to your own individual needs, in a group class or in your home practice.  _________________________ If you would like to see The Yoga White Board you can watch the video format of this podcast on my YouTube Channel:  Laura Goellner  I also post a picture of The Yoga White Board on my Instagram each week: @LauraGyoga Note: All strange background noises are attributed to my dog Redford wanting to be involved.

Ep. 9: Hands & Upper Extremity: The Upper Kinetic Chain for Weight Bearing
In this episode we talk about the Hands as the foundation of many poses. One of the unique things about yoga is that we often use the Hands for weight bearing and support. This is a great component to our movement practice BUT it requires some preparation to ensure strength and stability in the upper body to prevent injury.  I talk about my own experience with wrist and shoulder pain, how I modified my practice and the tools that I use to keep my hand and forearms strong.  < *< < < < * > > > > *> Work with Laura Online: I am now offering yoga instruction, yoga therapy and teacher mentoring on two different virtual platforms: Fit My Time: https://www.fitmytime.com/en/laurag Schedulicity & Zoom: https://www.schedulicity.com/scheduling/LGY7U6 < *< < < < * > > > > *> Laura’s Book: “Yoga Therapy At The Wall” is available in 2 formats: Instant PDF download from Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/HealthyFocusByLauraG Full Color Printed Manual from LuLu.com: https://www.lulu.com/shop/search.ep?keyWords=yoga+therapy+at+the+wall&type= < *< < < < * > > > > *> YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/LauraGYoga/featured Instagram: @LauraGyoga or @Yoga_At_The_Wall Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lauragyoga/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LauraGYoga/?ref=bookmarks BLOGspot: https://lauragyoga.blogspot.com/ Spotify Music Playlists: https://open.spotify.com/user/1291821362 Laura’s Website: www.LauraGyoga.com Yoga Focus PODCAST: https://anchor.fm/yogafocus < *< < < < * > > > > *> This is Our TRAVEL & Tiny House Lifestyle channel on YouTube: “Let New Adventures Begin” https://www.youtube.com/c/letnewadventuresbegin Support our work on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/LauraGyoga

Ep. 8: Feet & Ankles in Yoga Practice - Giving them the Attention they Deserve!
The FEET are often the foundation of the body, but we hardly ever give the feet the attention they deserve! In this episode we will talk about the merits of barefoot movement, my thoughts (and personal experience) on minimalist shoes, and I give you some easy ways that you can add in focused fork for the toes/feet/ankles in your practice or teaching! Next Episode we will talk about the Hands & How we can give extra attention to the HANDS/Wrists on our yoga mat!  One of the unique things about yoga...we often use our hands as the foundation! Which is great, but we need to give them some extra attention so they are able to handle this job well! *strange background noises, as always- brought to you by Redford (my dog) and the challenges of recording things in a 192 square foot Tiny House :) - Laura Goellner  < *< < < < * > > > > *> Work with Laura Online: I am now offering yoga instruction, yoga therapy and teacher mentoring on two different virtual platforms: Fit My Time: https://www.fitmytime.com/en/laurag Schedulicity & Zoom: https://www.schedulicity.com/scheduling/LGY7U6 < *< < < < * > > > > *> Laura’s Book: “Yoga Therapy At The Wall” is available in 2 formats: Instant PDF download from Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/HealthyFocusByLauraG Full Color Printed Manual from LuLu.com: https://www.lulu.com/shop/search.ep?keyWords=yoga+therapy+at+the+wall&type= < *< < < < * > > > > *> YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/LauraGYoga/featured Instagram: @LauraGyoga or @Yoga_At_The_Wall Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lauragyoga/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LauraGYoga/?ref=bookmarks BLOGspot: https://lauragyoga.blogspot.com/ Spotify Music Playlists: https://open.spotify.com/user/1291821362 Laura’s Website: www.LauraGyoga.com Yoga Focus PODCAST: https://anchor.fm/yogafocus < *< < < < * > > > > *> This is Our TRAVEL & Tiny House Lifestyle channel on YouTube: “Let New Adventures Begin” https://www.youtube.com/c/letnewadventuresbegin Support our work on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/LauraGyoga

Ep. 7: Spine Articulation: Isolation Vs. Integration of Spine Mobility
In this episode we look at a unique movement that the spine can do: Articulation from Vertebra to Vertebra. I most often see this used in a "roll up" transition, BUT spine articulation can be used in all 3 planes of movement, at all 3 segments of the spine. That articulation can be performed in an ISOLATED fashion focusing on just one area, or in a globally INTEGRATED movement with the rest of the spine or other joints in the body. We will talk about why both of these movement techniques has innate value and helps us to learn about our body.  **sorry about the background noise in this episode: windy outside & Redford needing my attention** #tinyhouseproblems  If you would like to see The Yoga White Board you can watch the video format of this podcast on my YouTube Channel:   I also post a picture of The Yoga White Board on my Instagram each week:  Note: All strange background noises are attributed to my dog Redford wanting to be involved.

In this episode we talk about the special project I have been working on for the past several years...Writing a book about therapeutic yoga practice using a wall as a prop.

Ep. 5: The McGill Big 3 Exercises for Back Stability & Why Tension Is Not (always) A Bad Thing
The McGill Big 3 Exercises are a foundation program that is used to create stability and endurance in the lower core muscles. These exercises have been shown to improve the tension of the core muscles so that stability is maintained over a longer period of time without fatigue/strain. Yup...tension...I know yogis shy away from anything that increases tension, but here we start to look at why tension can be a good thing and is actually needed in the body to maintain healthy movement and posture.  The passage I read was from: https://www.acefitness.org/education-and-resources/professional/expert-articles/7077/low-back-rehab-exercises-stuart-mcgill-s-big-three If you would like to see The Yoga White Board you can watch the video format of this podcast on my YouTube Channel:   I also post a picture of The Yoga White Board on my Instagram each week: @LauraGyoga Note: All strange background noises are attributed to my dog Redford wanting to be involved.

Ep. 4: Characteristics of Free, Natural Breathing Throughout the Day
 In this episode of the Yoga Focus podcast we are talking about the 8 characteristics of Free, Natural Breathing. These are the qualities that we want to encourage in the normal breath pattern that carries us through the day. This information is based on "The Breathing Book" by Donna Farhi and some information from Dr. Andrew Weil.   In an upcoming episode I will be going over the mechanics of breathing in more depth.  If you would like to see The Yoga White Board you can watch the video format of this podcast on my YouTube Channel:   I also post a picture of The Yoga White Board on my Instagram each week:  Note: All strange background noises are attributed to my dog Redford wanting to be involved.

Ep. 3: Yoga Therapy & Occupational Therapy: A Perfect Pair!!
April is Occupational Therapy Month and I have been an Occupational Therapist for about 9 years now. I often see yoga teachers going back to school for Physical Therapy, and PT is great, BUT I think that Occupational Therapy is a BETTER compliment to what you do as a yoga teacher. I explain why I think OT & Yoga go together better and how being an OT can lead to a career as a Yoga Therapist.  In an upcoming April episode I will be talking to my good friend and fellow OT: Dr. Alanna Pisani about sensory integration and how this can compliment any yoga practice.  Laura Goellner OTR, RYT, LMT, CLT  < *< < < < * > > > > *> Work with Laura Online: I am now offering yoga instruction, yoga therapy and teacher mentoring on two different virtual platforms: Fit My Time: https://www.fitmytime.com/en/laurag Schedulicity & Zoom: https://www.schedulicity.com/scheduling/LGY7U6 < *< < < < * > > > > *> Laura’s Book: “Yoga Therapy At The Wall” is available in 2 formats: Instant PDF download from Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/HealthyFocusByLauraG Full Color Printed Manual from LuLu.com: https://www.lulu.com/shop/search.ep?keyWords=yoga+therapy+at+the+wall&type= < *< < < < * > > > > *> YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/LauraGYoga/featured Instagram: @LauraGyoga or @Yoga_At_The_Wall Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lauragyoga/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LauraGYoga/?ref=bookmarks BLOGspot: https://lauragyoga.blogspot.com/ Spotify Music Playlists: https://open.spotify.com/user/1291821362 Laura’s Website: www.LauraGyoga.com Yoga Focus PODCAST: https://anchor.fm/yogafocus < *< < < < * > > > > *> This is Our TRAVEL & Tiny House Lifestyle channel on YouTube: “Let New Adventures Begin” https://www.youtube.com/c/letnewadventuresbegin Support our work on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/LauraGyoga

Ep. 2: Self-Inquiry Based Yoga Practice & Teaching
In this episode we talk about the shift that is happening in modern yoga from dictating what you "should" feel in any part of your practice to focusing on the experience of what you DO feel. This shift in teaching and learning yoga is working on empowering the student to fully experience the practice and therefore adapt it to their own needs - instead of what "ideal" alignment dictates.  Redford (my dog) makes a few guest appearances in the episode!

Yoga Focus Podcast: Introduction with Laura Goellner: @LauraGyoga
Welcome to the Yoga Focus Podcast! This podcast is about sharing information for yoga students & teachers to dive deeper into the layers of yoga. The Yoga Focus Method is my personal style of teaching with distinctive themes, visual aides (called a Yoga Board), and components that go beyond posture practice.  These themes tend to have a therapeutic focus as my  formal education is in Psychology, Occupational Therapy & Massage Therapy.  The information in this Podcast is the compliment to my weekly live classes, my youtube videos and online courses. This format lets me expand on the topics being discussed in the studio with greater detail.  I would love to hear from you- what topics you would like to cover or any questions that you have about yoga, teaching or how to find more focus? - Laura < *< < < < * > > > > *> Work with Laura Online: I am now offering yoga instruction, yoga therapy and teacher mentoring on two different virtual platforms: Fit My Time: https://www.fitmytime.com/en/laurag Schedulicity & Zoom: https://www.schedulicity.com/scheduling/LGY7U6 < *< < < < * > > > > *> Laura’s Book: “Yoga Therapy At The Wall” is available in 2 formats: Instant PDF download from Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/HealthyFocusByLauraG Full Color Printed Manual from LuLu.com: https://www.lulu.com/shop/search.ep?keyWords=yoga+therapy+at+the+wall&type= < *< < < < * > > > > *> YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/LauraGYoga/featured Instagram: @LauraGyoga or @Yoga_At_The_Wall Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lauragyoga/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LauraGYoga/?ref=bookmarks BLOGspot: https://lauragyoga.blogspot.com/ Spotify Music Playlists: https://open.spotify.com/user/1291821362 Laura’s Website: www.LauraGyoga.com Yoga Focus PODCAST: https://anchor.fm/yogafocus This is Our TRAVEL & Tiny House Lifestyle channel on YouTube: “Let New Adventures Begin” https://www.youtube.com/c/letnewadventuresbegin Support our work on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/LauraGyoga
