083 | Yoga Poses I Don’t Teach

Today’s episode is dedicated to sharing the poses in yoga that I do not teach or practice. People are constantly asking me why I don’t practice or teach certain yoga poses, and I wanted to speak to that today, and offer my rationale behind my why.

With each yoga pose, I always ask two questions:

  1. What is the benefit?
  2. What is the potential cost?

The following are poses that I find the cost outweighs any benefit you may get:

  • Shoulder stand
  • Plow
  • Fish pose
  • Headstand
  • Steaded forward folds
  • Splits
  • Triangle
