Movement Is Sacred—Judith Hanson Lasater on the Art and Spirituality of Physical Expression


What are the long-term benefits of a regular yoga practice—not just over months, but even years and decades? Most any regular yoga practitioner has experienced the immediate benefits of the practice in terms of improved mood and better energy.

But are there longer term changes that unfold over time, that affect not just our immediate health and wellness, but go deeper, affecting our personality and even our outlook on life?

In this free download, renowned yoga teacher Judith Hanson Lasater reflects on her own early experiences with yoga and the personal transformation that propelled her to dedicate her life to the practice and become one of yoga’s first and most widely know and highly regarded teachers.

From the very first yoga class, she notes, the direction of her life was changed forever. But importantly, in the long run, she was particularly struck of the effects the practice had on self awareness, and the ability to recognize how the mind works for—and often—against us.

Judith shares numerous inspiring stories about her growing recognition of this phenomenon. She further discusses the growth of yoga and the challenges and opportunities facing the teaching of yoga as a profession going forward.

The practice of yoga is fundamentally an act of kindness toward oneself. This idea is often forgotten, but not by Judith, whose approach is warm, non-judgmental and responsive to individual differences and needs.

I wanted to expand on my thank you. Yoga U Online has been an absolute lifesaver for me. I moved from a yoga mecca to a yoga desert. Instead of having my choice of teachers and styles and special workshops, I now have to travel an hour to take a class. The excellent teachers and interesting topics at Yoga U Online have kept me moving ahead in my practice. I am grateful for all the wonderful yoga you bring to me. Thank you.
My students will appreciate all the gems I've picked up from your teachers.Thank you so much!
