Yoga Teacher Resource Podcast

Feb 14, 2019

Learn what is really happening in your body when you stretch and how to use this information in your classes and personal practice.

Trigger point therapist and yoga teacher Cat Matlock takes us on a tour of the human muscular system and the way it interacts with the nervous system.


  • The key sensory organ that resides in your muscles and regulates your ability to stretch.
  • The reason you cannot do yoga specifically for your muscles or specifically for your fascia.
  • The difference between tone and tension - and how this impacts your ability to stretch a muscle.
  • Why the stretch reflex actually does the opposite of what it sounds like.
  • Techniques for stretching that honor the way your muscles actually work.
