Introduction to Ashtanga Yoga with Kino MacGregor, Tim Feldmann and Greg Nardi

Despite the fact that we’re all about 1/10 as flexible as Kino MacGregor, this “Introduction to Ashtanga Yoga” promises to be a great resource for passing on the tradition.  We’ll let you know when it becomes available from Miami Life Center.  Should be “soon.” [Update: Video is now available here].

Video description:

On this DVD we introduce you to the Ashtanga Yoga system, devised by our teacher Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and traditionally taught in Mysore, India. Including four distinct segments that are meant to be played repeatedly to deepen your yoga journey, this DVD is a perfect at-home practice manual for Ashtanga Yoga. You will learn the philosophical foundations of all yoga practice including a brief history of Ashtanga yoga and the genesis story of yoga itself. The third segment of the DVD details the powerful use of breathing as a connection between the body and the mind. A full one hour practice of Ashtanga Yoga complete with Sun Salutations, Standing Postures, Seated Postures, Backbends and Finishing postures completes your experience. Many modifications are offered so that all levels can enjoy trying the Ashtanga Yoga method. We humbly dedicate this DVD to our teacher, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, who passed away in 2009, at the age of 94, leaving behind a legacy that has touched countless lives around the world. We hope that our teaching carries the brilliant torch of his guiding light to many more students. We hope that you will practice often and experience the healing benefits of the Ashtanga Yoga method.

Ashtanga Yoga Podcasts from Miami Life Center

I stayed up way too late last night listening to Ashtanga yoga podcasts with Kino MacGregor on the Miami Life Center website. Very entertaining, motivating, and insightful.

Here’s a few podcasts that I downloaded (you can right-click on the links to save the files to your computer):

Yoga as a Spiritual Path Miami Friday Night Workshop Talk 2010 Part 1.

Guided Full Primary Series Richmond.

Miami Old Shala Q&A with Kino & Tim – The Ashtanga Yoga Method and Teaching Beginners.

In addition to the podcast page, the rest of the Miami Life Center website is chock-full of  yogic wisdom for those seeking deeper insight into yoga practice.  I plan on spending quite a bit of time there.  Too bad I’m not closer to Miami so I could actually take some classes there.  Not much Ashtanga yoga going on in my neck of the Florida panhandle…as far as I know…
