I had a great conversion with Fast Talk on yoga for cyclists and other athletes. Chris and Trevor asked wonderful questions, starting with, "Is yoga just fancy stretching?"
I recently had a conversation with a prospective yoga teacher trainee who had read The Professional Yoga Teacher's Handbook and who turned the tables on me by asking me all the questions I suggest aspiring teachers ask teacher training directors. But she added a great question of her own.
