Integrating Breath and Bandhas in Your Asana Practice 

Friday June 16th

4809 EYECBEAUTY 07May13In this first session with Tim you will locate your locks and drop into your breath to free your practice. Guruji says: “the Ashtanga practice is a breathing practice – the rest is just bending!” You will establish yourself firmly in the foundations of breath with a clear physical understanding of the use of the bandhas/body locks. You will learn simple pranayama to help your body open, your mind to settle into one-pointed focus and to free your body. Experience how this ancient tradition holds many life lessons.

All Levels.

Injury Prevention & Pain – A Yogic Perspective

Sunday June 18th

 

4861 EYECBEAUTY 07May13-2Ashtanga is one of the safest ways to get fit and healthy if approached intelligently. Yet, when we use our bodies actively and strongly we sometimes run into pain, strain and injury. Every physical expression has its own set of potential problem spots and Ashtanga Yoga has such too. In this workshop we take a detailed look at some of the Ashtanga Yoga practice’s classic locations for strain, such as how to keep our knees healthy in Padmasana, shoulders in Chatuari & Urdhva Dhanurasana, hamstrings in forward bending, and more. You will learn how to approach these asanas safely and accurately, how to distinguish between potentially hurting yourself and Patanjali’s proposition of Purifying Pain. This workshop aims at giving you tools to pursue your practice with gusto and joy, understand how discomfort & pain can be a guide in your practice, while staying healthy and safe on your mat.

12pm – 2pm

4861 EYECBEAUTY 07May13-2

Tim Feldmann is the director of Miami Life Center, the yoga shala he founded with his wife Kino MacGregor. 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 offers a wonderful 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. For more info please visit: www.timfeldmann.com and www.miamilifecenter.com
