PODCAST - Trauma-Informed and Non-Hierarchical Yoga with Amber Karnes

Redefining Health & Wellness Podcast with Amber Karnes, sponsored by Superfit Hero

Redefining Health & Wellness Podcast with Amber Karnes, sponsored by Superfit Hero

PODCAST CLUB - Join our private Facebook group to discuss this episode on Wednesday, May 27. 

Yoga has the potential to be a healing movement and mindset practice for all if taught in an intentional and inclusive way. But when it’s practiced in a way that centers only one type of body and minimizes others, it can do more harm than good.

Thankfully, there are fantastic yoga teachers and teacher trainers in the world like Amber Karnes who are committed to tearing down hierarchy and building a culture of consent in yoga and beyond. In this episode, Amber and Shohreh chat about ways to achieve this and why it matters. 

Discussed in this episode:

  • How Amber got started with yoga and why she kept going with it.
  • The education Amber received through the internet on feminism, social justice, and Health At Every Size© at the same time she was developing a yoga practice.
  • How to move from intellectually understanding body liberation and HAES© to actually embodying it.
  • Binary thinking as a tool of oppressive systems.
  • The ability of yoga to quiet our minds in order to remember our humanity.
  • The importance of decentering thin, white women from yoga practice in America and addressing the barriers that keep other people at the margins.
  • Trauma-informed yoga and creating a culture of consent.
  • How our words as fitness professionals have the power to either build community or make people feel more lonely.
  • Amber’s recommendation to remove hierarchy from your language as much as possible.
  • How practitioners of yoga can empower themselves to have a better yoga experience since a lot of teachers will unfortunately not know how to work with everybody.
  • How Amber defines health and wellness for herself at this moment in her life.
