Stop Stretching with Yogi Aaron
January 20, 2023
One of the most sought-after teachers today, Yogi Aaron is trailblazing a new path in the world of yoga. Known for his unorthodox perspectives on stretching and flexibility and how both cause more harm than good, his teachings aim to help as many people as possible live a pain-free life so they can realize yoga’s true intentions. On this show, Yogi Aaron is my guest, and we’re going to discuss his revolutionary and unconventional yogic ideas. You will learn new things about how your body works. I confess that I know very little about yoga. But, I have gone to chiropractors for many years and I managed a chiropractor’s office for several years and learned quite a bit about the body. So, when Yogi Aaron contacted me about being a guest, and wanted to discuss his book “Stop Stretching”, I was definitely intrigued. Let’s dive into why he says we should stop stretching, how he came to that conclusion and what we should do instead. (I’ll let you know now, I’ve extended an invitation to accept listener questions and to invite him back for a question and answer session to discuss questions listeners send for him. Send them to
