Episode 49: How to make empowered choices with Trina Altman

The Movement Diaries

I’m thrilled to have movement teacher and educator Trina Altman on the podcast today. I’ve known Trina for years and have learned from her as both a student, a teacher and a coach. She is one of the most brilliant and gifted teachers I know. Right away we’re diving into our mutual dislike of cooking and how we’ve found a way to work with that and create a happy, sustainable relationship with food. Then we follow it up with so much good conversation around:-How the way you grow up with food and how your family eats can have a major impact on how you use and connect with food as an adult. -Trina’s candid discussion of her background with childhood sports and cheerleading and how that impacted her body image-What its like to teach Pilates and work in the fitness business and not focus on aesthetics. -Trina’s own struggles around certain foods like chocolate and the progress she’s made towards a more sustainable relationship with it-The key difference between strength training and Pilates and why it matters-How to figure out what kind of exercise is right for you when it seems like nothing fitsConnect with JordanaFind me on InstagramSign up for my Monday newsletter with lots of nutrition, exercise and mindset tipsCheck out my websiteConnect with TrinaInstagram Website

86: What It REALLY Looks Like to Regress or Progress Movement with Trina Altman

The Mentor Sessions

There are two things I’m really passionate about in my teaching: One is dismantling the notion of linear, hierarchical, universal progress, especially when it comes to movement. The other is teaching in a way that students feel 100% agency to make autonomous, empowered, educated decisions about their own movement practice.  These two concepts come together really beautifully when we unpack regressions and progressions in movement because for every modification that could be considered a regression there is an example of the kind of body or situation in which that version is actually a progression and vice versa.  For this reason, I am STOKED to have my friend Trina Altman back on the podcast to dive DEEP into these concepts.  Trina Altman is the creator of Yoga Deconstructed® and Pilates Deconstructed®, which helps movement teachers foster an embodied understanding of their teaching and create a more sustainable practice through an interdisciplinary approach based on current movement science.  Her work has been published in Yoga Journal, Yoga International and Pilates Style. Her book, Yoga Deconstructed®: Movement Science Principles For Teaching was published by Handspring Publishing in December 2020.  Check out our previous conversations in Episode #3 (about her Yoga Deconstructed approach) and Episode #34 (all about a creative use of props in asana class). In this episode you’ll hear: what the research shows about why yoga-related injuries are quite common the difference between internal and external cueing and when you might use one rather than the other  the nine different factors to consider when regressing or progressing a movement various movement adaptations based on these nine factors and when they would likely be regression and when they are more likely to be a progression what yoga teachers listening can do to integrate these ideas into their teaching Learn More From Trina: on her website buy her book! on Instagram
