Julia is a yoga teacher who specialises in menstruation and “women’s issues”. She educates Mark about women’s cycles and how they effect life and yoga practice, and offers many useful do’s and don’ts related to women’s bleed. They also hit on gender differences in anatomy and practice, form vs free yoga, Western yoga, yoga in daily life, abuse in yoga, copyright issues vs generosity, hyper-mobility, why more women do yoga than men, shame and menstruation, how men can be left out of modern yoga, and awareness and self-care as the key. She also offers a calming alternate-nostril breathing exercise. Another fun and educational chat.
