Linda Kohanov explains THE FIVE ROLES OF A MASTER HERDER
By Publicity Admin
In this interview, equine author and teacher Linda Kohanov discusses her new book, The Five Roles of a Master Herder, which presents a revolutionary model for socially intelligent leadership. Kohanov outlines five distinct leadership roles and explains how nomadic pastoral cultures embodied and balanced the five roles to move huge groups of animals, without restraints, through various predators, drastic climates, and other challenges. Chances are, you've been in a group led by someone in the Dominant role. Find out why that role does not actually make a good leader in the long run. Learn why the Nurturer/Companion role is more important than you think, and how you can embrace the value of the Predator role.

ESTABLISHING A HOME YOGA PRACTICE: An excerpt from THE ART AND BUSINESS OF TEACHING YOGA by Amy Ippoliti and Taro Smith, PhD
By Publicity Admin
Yoga in America is booming. A 2016 report by Yoga Journal and Yoga Alliance reported that 36.7 million people in the US practice yoga, up from 20.4 million in 2012, and 28 percent of all Americans have taken a yoga class at some point in their lives. As a result, the demand for yoga instructors has never been higher, and increasing numbers of practitioners are becoming inspired to teach — a career that can be as challenging as it is fulfilling. 

In their new book The Art and Business of Teaching Yoga: The Yoga Professional’s Guide to a Fulfilling Career, yoga “teacher of teachers” Amy Ippoliti and wellness entrepreneur Taro Smith, PhD, build on their popular “90 Minutes to Change the World” online course for yoga professionals to offer instructors a road map for creating a career that sustains and inspires not only themselves but their students as well.

DIRECT AND PROTECT by guest blogger Linda Kohanov, author of THE FIVE ROLES OF A MASTER HERDER
By Publicity Admin

Author and teacher, Linda Kohanov is a master of "the way of the horse," an experiential wisdom gained by studying the nonpredatory power of horses. In The Five Roles of a Master Herder: A Revolutionary Model for Socially Intelligent Leadership, she adapts these horse-inspired insights into useful tools for developing collaborative leadership and managing change. "Master Herders" of nomadic herding cultures developed a multifaceted, socially intelligent form of leadership combining the five roles of Dominant, Leader, Sentinel, Nurturer/Companion, and Predator. The fluid interplay of these roles allowed interspecies communities to move across vast landscapes, dealing with predators and changing climates, protecting and nurturing the herd while keeping massive, gregarious, often-aggressive animals together — without the benefit of fences and with very little reliance on restraints.
