In this podcast, David answers students questions.

2:20 - I've got a question about pranayama. I've done your Ashtanga Pranayama Sequence video course,  and I just want to clarify things with the Jalandhara Bandha position? 

5:42 - Practicing with scoliosis or disc problems.

13:44 - Dear david, i feel fear when I attempt backbends like Kapotasana and drop backs. Through practice it has gotten better, and I wonder if I could further work with the fear by using any type of visualization or mantra to help to get through that fearful state and trust that I’ll be okay. 

17:26 - What’s your yoga advice for mid 50s practitioner that’s currently spending more time with sitting meditation. I do get on my mat but with shorter asana practices for the time being and only full practice on the weekends. It feels right but I do want to keep a minimum maintenance asana practice, not worrying, and keep doing what feels right at the time. 

22:58 - How do you recommend taking responsibility for your practice without having a studio or a teacher in person? 

26:18 - The process when you feel extreme inertia in practice, what do you do?

34:00 - May I chant like a martial artist does during a strike right before executing a vinyasa to help me address my near end of practice inertia?

36:25 - A question about fasting.

38:25 - David, do you practice at the same time everyday?

39:20 - David, do you practice first thing in the morning?

39:50 - David, do you practice more than once a day?

44:44 - David, how long do you typically practice?

David ends the podcast with poems.
