ABOUT THE SHOW

I’ve been following Cecily’s work through Yoga Detour for years and she’s a true innovator in the yoga world. She has helped me redefine the very foundation of how I approach asana, both in my personal practice, but also in my teaching. She brings critical thinking to what we’ve been taught as yoga teachers, and draws on years of study in other movement disciplines to create a much deeper understanding of how the body moves.

You can find numerous interviews with Cecily about her approach, and definitely check out her instagram below for some visual learning but in today’s episode, I really wanted to get behind the curtain of Cecily’s incredibly successful business, Yoga Detour.
