In the first chapter of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra, the Samadhi Pada, the nature of the mind and the elusive mental state known as ‘Samadhi’ are described. In the second chapter, the Sadhana Pada, Patanjali outlines the process by which Samadhi can be obtained. In this six week course we will fuse Western and Eastern pedagogical methods. We will chant, translate and discuss each Sutra, all the while striving to keep this esoteric work grounded as we find its relevance to our daily lives.
The course will begin with a brief review of the first Chapter for everyone new to the Sutras, and then continue into Patanjali’s second chapter. This series is open to all students who wish to delve a little deeper into the philosophical underpinnings of our asana practice, regardless of experience level or even yogic lineage. The only requirement is curiosity.

Learn how to tune into the more subtle aspects of your breath to benefit from its effect in asana, meditation and daily life. Where we place our breath during practice is just as important as our intention during the movement. The Vayus are more than breath, they are the energy moving in the body. Learn how to harness your energy.
By the means of mantras, light asana and meditation you will learn how to locate the different Vayus in your body, feel their significance. and how to relate them to your asana practice.

Leah Kinsella began practicing Yoga in 2000 in San Diego. In 2009 I went through my first teacher training at Prana Yoga in Miami. Since then I have taken workshops with Mark Whitwell, John Friend and Sean Corne. I came upon my teacher Rod Stryker, founder of Para Yoga® in 2009. Para Yoga stems from the Sri Vidya Tantric Hatha lineage and the Himalayan Institute, Sri Swami Rama. I received my 250 yoga alliance certification in 2009 from Prana Yoga in Miami and have since completed seven 40hr Para Yoga intensives. An accumulation of over 500 hours of Hatha training. I am currently undergoing training to become level 1 Para yoga® certified. I was initiated by Rod Stryker in 2012. For me, Yoga is a method which has and continues to fill my life with joy. I love sharing that experience with others.

Tim Feldmann is the director of Miami Life Center, the yoga shala he founded with his wife Kino MacGregor and directs with Matt Tashjian. He was set on the yoga path by his first teacher Lino Miele and is Authorized to teach directly by the founder of the Ashtanga Yoga Method, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, and his grandson, R. Sharath Jois. A practitioner of the Advanced A series Tim is dedicated to Ashtanga Yoga’s traditional method.
“The body is the way to our spirit, to our true Self. That’s what asana is for”.
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, Australia, Europe and the Americas.

Program
Monday – Friday
6-8am  Mysore style
2-4:30pm Workshop

Mon – Ashtanga Essentials / 2.5 hour
Through practice and discussion, in this workshop we will explore the interconnectedness of the whole body. This workshop is sophisticated enough for all level of practitioner to benefit. We will focus on awareness and understanding to find grace, rather than physical vigor. This will create the context for your effort in daily practice to bear the most fruit.
We will explore the relationship between the axial and appendicular skeleton, the muscles of respiration, and the movements of the spine to create a matrix that will help you understand how alignment, breath and movement harmonize to form the basis for vinyasa, the foundation of the ashtanga yoga practice.
Tue – Hips, Knees, and Forward bends/ 2.5 hour
Paschimattanasana, or west stretching pose, describes forward bending as a means of opening the subtle channels on the posterior surface of the body. In this workshop, we will look at the three symmetrical forward bends, or paschimattanasana poses in the beginning of primary series to help us understand the fundamentals of hip and spinal flexion. We will then build on this foundation to look at asymmetrical forward bends and what they teach us about proper use of the hips and knees so that we can safely move towards advanced forward bending asanas.
Thurs – Core, jumping back and through/ 2.5 hour
We will explore how to utilize the full strength of the torso and band has to support our body weight. This will facilitate the smooth transition of energy necessary for graceful jump backs and jump throughs. We will also explore the spine as a smooth chain for the rolling poses in the second half of primary series.
Fri – the jewels in the lotus/ 2.5 hour
Deconstructing 5 of the most challenging poses in the Primary Series. Are you intimidated or struggling with Marychiasana D, Bhujapidasana, Supta Kurmasana, Garbha Pindasana and/or Setu Bandhasana? You’re not the only one! This workshop is structured to alleviate the anxiety and fear that can come to the surface when we think of practicing these challenging asana. We will discuss the fundamental principles of these asanas and develop a safe and effective plan to take the posture, or prepare the body for the posture one day!
Fee:
Full workshop $350
Afternoon workshops: $45 per session
