083 | Yoga Poses I Don’t Teach and Why

May 13, 2019

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



Today’s episode is sponsored my LYT Daily online yoga classes. This is an exclusive pass into my personal practice and program that I created from my experience as a physical therapist and 20 years developing my LYT yoga methodology. There is a different class with me everyday – including special monthly live streams – so you can feel your most LYT up – anytime and anywhere.
