“It’s medicinal to be so present. It’s medicine and wherever that student is, in that moment, they’re either able to swallow it and be like, ‘oh thank you,’ or it’s going to be so bitter, scary, and frightening that they need to go off and do some more work before they are really able to inhabit the present moment.”
In this episode, Kevin Courtney, yoga teacher and musician, tells the story of his musical background from playing guitar in his youth to exploring the healing power of shamanic ceremony music. Kevin recounts the first yoga class he ever attended and what drew him back to his mat. He discusses how his evolution as a yoga teacher has been centered on maintaining a spirit of openness, gratitude, and co-creation in a highly commercialized yoga world.
