Aligning Practice and Philosophy: a conversation with Najee Robbins
Sep 30, 2020 Season 1 Episode 8
Raina LaGrand @ RISE Education and Consulting

Najee Robbins is a yoga teacher, educator, and doula (in a former life). She was first introduced to yoga in high school, as a means to escape the awfulness that is regular gym class. Later in life, her doula work brought her back to the practice. We talk about the importance of incorporating philosophy and messaging into yoga classes, the limitations of the wellness world, and how supportive and transformative restorative yoga is. Hearing Najee talk about her perspective on yoga will soothe, ground, and inspire you.

You can sign up for Najee's newsletter and soon find resources for restorative yoga and more at www.protectyourpeace.yoga and/or follow her on social media here: www.instagram.com/protectyourpeace.

Books on Restorative Yoga:
- Restorative Yoga for Ethnic and Race-Based Stress and Trauma by Dr. Gail Parker
- Yoga For Emotional Balance by Bo Forbes
- Restore and Rebalance by Judith Lasater
*You can also find podcast interviews and videos on YouTube where you can hear these teachers discuss the practice further.
