Make stuff you love and talk about stuff you love and you’ll attract people who love that kind of stuff. It’s that simple.  Austin Kleon said this in his recent newsletter/blog post.  What a whack on the head for me!

Wow, this is a whack on the head for me!  See more on his original post at:

I’ve been digging this course that I’ve been taking over at Yoga Vista Academy, Gentle yoga for the low back specialty certification.  I am about 1/2 way through the coursework.

Learning about poses for various curves in the spine – scoliosis.

Poses for those of us with Lumbar Disc Damage, Spinal Stenosis, True Sciatica, Piriformis Syndrome.

There is a manual for each topic, video lectures, digging deep into the poses and variations, understanding the musculature, benefits of the poses.

Then we do teach backs.  The first four sets of teach backs are yoga poses to do for people who have:

  • Lumbar Disc Damage
  • Si Joint Challenges
  • True Sciatica & Piriformis Release
  • and one of your choice, which for me will be Scoliosis

Tests over each section.

Then conduct a teach-back class for the healthy back.

Some of us were able to sign up and have a coach throughout this process, to help us keep motivate, bounce questions off of, and have dial-in conversations about the course material, for further dig deeps into the material.

I am really enjoying figuring how to help my back pain, and then turn it around and help my clients with their challenges.

Here’s a sample of one of my teach backs.  A series of 5-7 poses one can drop into a regular class to address issues of, in this example Lumbar Disc Damage.  


My clients have been enjoying me dropping in new course material in the classes and privates that I teach. Plus a bonus of a bit of yoga nidra to help assist in better sleep!

So this is my “thanks” to Austin, for his inspiration to make stuff you love and talk about stuff you love, then attract who love that same kind of stuff. Thanks Austin!
