Vidvan Prof H.V. Nagaraja Rao holds an M.A. from the University of Washington, and also from the University of Mysore, Alankara Vidvat and Vyakarana Vidvat in Sanskrit from the Maharaja’s Sanskrit College in Mysore. He has received the highest recognition for his work in Sanskrit poetry from the President of India. He is also a visiting professor of Sanskrit at the University of Chicago in 1995, 1996 and 2001, a Fellow at the Center for Advanced Studies at the Hebrew University, Jerusalem and the Honorary editor for Sudharma Sanskrit Daily, the only publication of its kind worldwide. Professor Rao has an uncanny ability to bring new light to texts such as the Gita and the Upanishads with his infectious passion and his ability to communicate in English, which is rare among sanskrit scholars of his stature. Students leave his presentations with a feeling of liberation from the mundane and inspiration to strive for higher goals in life.

“I have seen the greatest pundit’s speaking on high philosophical subjects from the Gita to the Vedas and Nagaraj Rao is among the greatest of them in his understanding and ability to communicate the underlying philosophies of these texts.” – Sri Kantha Shastri of the Veda Gita Foundation, San Diego.

Tim Feldmann is the director of Miami Life Center and is Authorized to teach by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. A practitioner of the Advanced A series Tim is dedicated to Ashtanga Yoga’s traditional method. A near fatal falling accident in 1992 led Tim on the yogic path. His teaching integrates extensive studies of F.M. Alexander Technique and sitting meditation with 20 years of experience as a professional dancer and an internationally acclaimed choreographer. His in-depth knowledge of functional anatomy, alignment as well as the idiosyncratic body and mind in stillness and in motion creates the platform upon which his solid understanding of the Ashtanga method rests. Tim’s humorous, straight forward yet profound teaching style makes him a cherished teacher, traveling extensively throughout Asia, Europe and the Americas. “The body is the way to our spirit, to our true Self. That’s what asana is for”.
