51: An Applied Neuroscience Approach to Yoga + Movement with Erin Jade

Erin Jade has been working in massage therapy and yoga/movement instruction since 2004. In 2014 she began to pivot away from traditional asana into varietal movement drawing from the influences of Katy Bowman, Erwan Le Corre, Ido Portal, Igor Burdenko, Moshe Feldenkrais, FRC, Laban Bartenieff, contemporary dance and more. The search led her to movement education and rehab through the lens of applied neuroscience when she discovered education systems Z Health and Applied Movement Neurology Academy. Erin has begun to introduce these concepts to yoga and movement teachers and we are so lucky to have her on the podcast today teaching us the basics about applied neuroscience in yoga and movement classes.

In this episode you’ll hear:

  • why it is important to assess how our nervous system functions and how we might do that
  • how much of our movement ability is driven by our vision and what should yoga teachers should do with that information
  • why what we do in class should translate to functional skills applicable to everyday life and what that might look like in an asana class
  • and much more!
