Awesome, it worked!

Now before you head over to your inbox to download your Essential Guide to Outdated Yoga Cues let me tell you a short personal story.

I remember the first time I got injured doing yoga.

It was in India over 10 years ago, during the very first teacher training I ever took.

Our teacher cued us into Lotus Pose with no props and no modifications. He simply said:

Everyone get into Lotus Pose.

I came into the pose, but my top knee wouldn't go down. I didn't notice it, and was proud of myself for twisting my legs into this crazy position.

But my teacher did notice.

He came over, stood behind me, and pressed his hands down onto my thighs. My knee went down - quickly. And I felt something burning in my inner knee. It felt absolutely horrible, but I was scared to say anything.

I thought, "He's my teacher so he must know what he's doing."

My knee would never be the same again.

Even to this day, I have pain sometimes and have to wear a knee brace.

If I would have had more knowledge about my practice, and the courage to tell him to stop pushing my body into a shape it wasn't ready to do, my knee would still be healthy.

But I didn't have the courage. And I didn't have the knowledge of anatomy to know that my meniscus was being damaged. I just followed what the teacher wanted.

Has this ever happened to you in a yoga class?

Maybe it was a strong assist, like the one I got. Or maybe it was following a cue that felt like it was hurting your body rather than helping it. But you did it anyway, because you trust your teacher.

This guide is for all of you who want to understand if you're doing your body harm, or making it happy.

It's for everyone who wants to know more. I hope you read it and that it changes the way you practice your yoga.

And one more thing before you go...

There is a reason my knee was lifting up in Lotus Pose. And there's a reason why all of our poses - both mine and yours - aren't always "perfect," like we see in the yoga books.

And guess what ... there is a method for knowing if you will ever one day be able to get into your dream pose, or if you will always be stuck right where you are. I discovered this method and it changed the way I do yoga forever.

This method also helped me quickly decipher which yoga teachers know what they're talking about, and which ones are just blindly repeating outdated cues.

So, what's the method? You have to figure out one thing:

Is it my muscles, or my bones?

Once you know the answer to this question, you will unlock huge insights into your yoga practice and know what you will one day be able to achieve, or not.

Since discovering this method, I've helped hundreds of yogis understand their unique body and what it's capable of on the mat.

And now, I'm sharing this method (and so much more) with you.

I am so glad I decided to join the Mini YTT!

I really enjoyed finding out about bones, ligaments, tendons and fascia. So grounding to actually understand more about how our bodies are put together and function - and that we’re all different - yayy! Thanks Jess - very humorous!

Every single hour gives me so much!

I love the explanations of the poses, and I am glad to have the videos to watch again to internalize all the information. It's also wonderful to be able to leave a comment or ask questions on each lesson. Jess always takes the time to respond and guide her students along the way!

I highly recommend the Mini YTT to everyone. You will find that it will be an absolute asset to you!

What's inside the Movement Wisdom Mini YTT:


Key Concepts of Yoga Philosophy

"Walk yout talk" as a yogi!
Have you ever been to a yoga class that ended with chanting 'Om' or saying 'namaste' and wondered what these things actually mean? In this one hour video lecture Learn about the most common (and often misunderstood) concepts from yoga from our ancient friends in the east:
  • Om
  • Namaste
  • Guru
  • Karma
  • Maya
  • Moksha
  • Atman
  • Sadhana
  • Samskara
  • Sat-Chit-Ananda
  • Samsara

Vinyasa Flow & Sequencing

The true meaning of 'Vinyasa' + Class Sequencing

Curious how yoga teachers seem to magically create fun, creative, safe yoga flows for every class? Get a behind-the-scenes look at how I create my classes!

First, take a 75 minute vinyasa flow class, where you learn the original meaning of the words 'Vi-Nyasa' and apply this philosophy on the mat.

Then, join me as I explain how I created the sequence of the class.


Introduction to Meditation

Know Your Meditation Style

Did you know that most of the meditation techniques that you might practice these days do not come from the ancient, time-tested yoga tradition?

In this 70 minute audio lecture (which you can download) we first dive into the history of meditation in yoga and Buddhism, and understand key differences between the two. Then we learn about modern, Western meditation and take a look at how that differs from ancient meditation practices.


Yoga Anatomy - Bones & Ligaments

How Your Bones Affect Your Yoga

The yoga world has a deep, dark secret that most yoga practitioners and yoga teachers don't understand, and it's this: the size & shape of your bones has a massive impact on your yoga practice!

The truth is, some of us will never be able to do Lotus Pose, or the Splits, or Wheel Pose - not because our muscles aren't long and stretchy, but because of our bones! Learn all about it in this 50 minute workshop.


Personal Growth & Transformation

Find Your Core Values

The entire system of yoga was created to help us understand our true nature. Yoga was meant to help answer the question - "Who am I, deep down inside?"

This exercise brings you closer to your true Self. Define your core values - the feelings and characteristics that speak to your heart and help guide you through life in the best possible way.


Yin Yoga & Applied Anatomy

Why Can't I Go Deeper In This Pose?

Do you know why your forward fold stops where it does? Can you feel what part of your body stops your pigeon pose from going any deeper?

Unlock some of your body's unique mysteries on the mat by asking the question, "What stops me from going further in this pose?"

As you'll see in this 90 minute yin class, it's not always as simple as having tight muscles. Sometimes it is a flexibility issue, but other times, our bones hit up against each other, giving us no more room to go further into a pose, no matter how much we stretch and stretch.
