03: The Placebo Effect with Katja Bartsch, Part 2

Tiffany Cruikshank and Rachel Land

Today we are continuing our discussion on the Placebo Effect. In the first half we talked about what the Placebo Effect is, why it is so important, and how it applies to the work we do. In this episode we dive into the many ways that placebo effects relate to lifestyle, movement, and yoga.

In this episode, you’ll learn how your mindset affects your relationship to exercise, why meditation is the groundwork for what yoga teachers do, why our language matters and why exercise you enjoy is so important.

“Your mindset you have about stress, food, and exercise can also create expectations and those placebo effects.” – Katja Bartsch

“If we do have stress, how do we cope with that and how does that lead into a certain expectation that we have about a certain situation?” – Katja Bartsch
