frequently asked questions
Q: I'm new to yoga, where do I begin?
A: Welcome to the wonderfully healing world of yoga, we're grateful to have you here with us! We recommend that you begin with Day 0 of our 7-day Embark Beginner Yoga Program, and then whenever you feel ready, you can move onto our 28-day Ignite All Levels Yoga Program. We have over 200 free classes on our YouTube channel so if you're looking for something in particular, you can use the magnifying class to search. We recommend incorporating yoga (movement, breathwork, and meditation) into your daily routine for optimal long-term health.
Q: I'd like to deepen my yoga practice and begin attending longer meditations and longer/stronger yoga classes, where do I go?
A: Amazing to hear that you're ready to travel a bit deeper on the journey to your Self. Head over to our Patreon platform where we share exclusive content found nowhere else: 60+ minute advanced yoga classes, guided meditations, 20+ video handstand program, Live Q&A, retreat discounts, and more.
Q: Do you lift weights?
A: No. Watch this video to hear why we quit the gym five years ago, how we still keep in shape, and learn why we feel stronger and healthier than we ever have before.
Q: How can I stay up-to-date with your current whereabouts, events, and offerings?
Q: I would love to learn how to handstand, where do I go?
A: We offer handstand training in three different avenues:
1) This YouTube overview video "5 Absolute MUST KNOWS About Handstand"
2) Our 20-video Handstand Program offered exclusively in our Patreon Community
3) Online Handstand Private 1:1 Coaching. Since every body is different, private lessons allow for an individual assessment of your specific body to help you find your best handstand line.
Q: What type of lens/microphone do you use for filming? What yoga leggings does Bre wear? What are your favorite books/movies? What backpack do you use to fit your whole life into?
A: We list all of the products we use in our Kit.
Q: What's your diet like?
A: Scope out all the details on the diet page of our website.
Q: Can I hire you to teach a private online zoom class?
A: While we *really* appreciate the interest, this is not something we do. Since we travel full time and don't have a home base, finding a solid location that's large enough to film, doesn't have interruptions, and has fast internet is very hard to come by (especially on a budget!) so we can't offer zoom classes during this time. If you're a company and you'd like to hire us for a team summit or event, then please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can send over our corporate video rates media kit.
Q: Can you teach classes tailored to children and/or seniors?
A: No, it's not our niche of teaching and it's best to find an instructor that's certified in teaching those age groups. You can search the Yoga Alliance database for registered children yoga teachers (RCYT) here.
Q: How can I become a certified yoga instructor?
A: Congratulations on taking the next step to invest in yourself and deepen your knowledge; the world can never have enough yoga teachers! We recommend taking trainings from teachers that align with your philosophy of life and you appreciate their style of teaching. We will be opening our own yoga school in 2022, but if you understandably can’t wait that long, then we recommend checking out Dylan Werner, Patrick Beach & Carling Harps, Almut Schotte, and Danni Pomplun’s YTT trainings as we respect their teachings and their style is very similar to ours. In addition to the western teachers who are usually most advanced in sequencing and modern functional movement, we also recommend doing a training in India where the eastern philosophy is very heavily rooted and you'll learn a lot more about breathwork, subtle energy, doshas, ayurveda, culture, and energy healing. Many teachers may look great on paper but we *highly* recommend only taking a training from someone that you've taken/attended classes from so you know their style ahead of time before investing so much time and money. We personally wouldn’t take an online training with the intention of teaching others as the in-person learning and teaching is something that can not be replicated online. We know lockdown doesn’t allow for in-person training so it’s up to you if you want to wait. The investment range can vary but no matter who you choose, we do recommend that the school is Yoga Alliance accredited.
Q: I have an injury/pain in muscle/joint, how do I fix it and should I keep practicing yoga?
A: Yoga can be incredibly healing but it can't fix everything. It's great that you're aware of sensations of pain and we wish we could give you specific advice but for one, we're not licensed medical doctors nor therapists so not only should we be leaving that to the professionals but secondly, it's nearly impossible to diagnose anything over an email/IG/FB. It's always recommended to go see a licensed physician if you feel pain (as you should never 'yoga' your way through pain). We recommend looking into physicians that are specialized in Functional Range Conditioning (Kinstretch) and Structural Integration (Rolfing). In the meantime, we still advise that you continue to move your body in all directions but of course avoid any sensations of pain. Scope out this videos that can assist with common pain points: wrists, shoulders, back. Usually pain in the body is a result of either under use or overuse; the sooner you get it checked out and fixed, the sooner you can be back to using your body to it's full range of movement. If you've been in pain for a long time, don't give up hope, the body is meant to heal and it will always be moving in the direction of healing if you give it the right combination of mediums & tools.
Q: I understand that everything you give on YouTube is completely free. I'd love to give back the love and help contribute to your mission to help more people heal their bodies, discover stillness in their minds, and follow their dharma. How can I give back?
A: Thank you SO much for even considering giving back to us. We've been running this channel for four years and most of it, without monetizing a single penny. To give back, you can either join us on Patreon for a monthly subscription starting at $5 USD, or you can give a one-time donation via PayPal or Venmo. Even if you're not in a place to give financially, know that we still truly appreciate your support by practicing with us online and sharing our channel with your community. We couldn't do this without you. Thank you, thank you, thank you 🙏✨💙
