ABOUT THE SHOW

Today on the show I speak with Norman Blair - Norman is an author, yoga teacher and advocate for teachers rights, living and teaching in the UK. While Norman has been teaching since the early 1990’s I first became familiar with Norman's work when he published two viral articles in early 2019 called Let’s Talk About Yoga Teachers And Pay. Since then Norman has become a trusted voice on teachers rights, and has been recently quoted in a yoga journal article on The Future Of Yoga.
