Online Yoga Q&As

A special gathering for everyone, everywhere

Want to get more out of your yoga practice? Weโ€™re here for you. ๐Ÿค— Our free Online Yoga Q&A sessions are held quarterly and hosted by BYSJ owner and founder Michele Vennard, with staff teachers Matt and Sarah Newman.

No question is a bad question, so BRING IT! We will discuss the postures, breathing, home setup and environment, consistency, restarting a practice, and anything else you like.

Whether youโ€™re able to attend or canโ€™t make it, you can submit your questionsย in advance โ€“ a video of the session is posted afterwards. Subscribe to ourย YouTube channel and check out the Q&A playlist so you never miss out.

Check out our event schedule for the next Q&A.

In Standing Separate Leg Head to Knee, my back heel comes up when I try to separate my legs more. Do I stay wider and try to push the heel down or shorten my stance?

In the Fixed Firm pose, I’m unable to get my butt on the floor as I go back on my elbows, and opening my knees doesn’t seem to help. Is there something more I should be aiming for?

In Tree pose, Toe Stand, and other Lotus-type poses, my knee lifts, and my hips don’t open, which makes it harder to be in the posture. What should I do?

With arms overhead like in Half Moon or Balancing Stick pose, my shoulders feel stuck, and my arms jack-knife forward. Should I try to rotate the shoulders outward to make progress?

A student of mine feels like she’s not getting enough oxygen and wants to practice by an open window, but there is obviously enough. What’s the best way to handle special requests like this?

Is there any news about Bikram Yoga teacher trainings?

I’m becoming more aware of my twisted wrists and getting corrections, but I find it hard to focus on them. How do I concentrate better on my wrists?
