Matthew Remski, CYT, Writer, Ayurvedic Practitioner
Over the past eight years as an asana teacher and Ayurvedic practitioner, Matthew has heard hundreds of stories of classroom or self-practice injury. In January of 2014 he began a formal qualitative research project to catalogue the pedagogical, psychological, and socio-cultural contexts that can make practice less safe. He’ll present stories and themes from the 150+ interviews he has conducted, and moderate a discussion about how we manage and give meaning to discomfort and pain on the mat, and some best practices for creating the best learning environments possible. The book is currently scheduled for publication in the fall of 2017.
