We are honored to host one of the most senior Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga teachers – Chuck Miller – for his 3rd workshop at Tao’s Center.

 

The workshop will focus on getting back to the roots and essence of Ashtanga Yoga. It is a unique opportunity for practitioners of all levels to reveal an often over-looked core dimension of yoga, especially for teachers and experienced practitioners.

The workshop is meant for participants with prior of at least one year of regular practice.

 

The 5-day workshop daily schedule includes morning & afternoon sessions, breakfast, dinner and free island time.

 

More from Chuck about the workshop:

…The three pillars, the principles of practice, can be thought of as ‘anchors’ for the mind, that keep us heading in the correct direction. I call these ‘Breath, Roots, Core’, the uniting of all three into one!

This will be our exploration. Using the precise sequence of Breath Movements as taught traditionally, not rushing to ‘Get it done’. Rather, ‘unpacking’ the sequence, looking deeper into it, experiencing it in a more intelligent way, honoring the philosophical roots of the practice, experiencing philosophy and practice as one thing.

I don’t care how far you go nor how fast you go. That you understand the direction and quality of effort is more important. It will start slower, it must. We cannot look deeply inside if we continue to run in the same grooves. We need to step out of the regular, habituated patterns of practice in order to evolve (love is in there, in that word!) and go deeper into the essential truths.

Come On. Give it a try. See if you are willing to be a beginner!

 

Morning Practice

The first days will start slowly as a led class, evolving towards ‘Mysore Style’ as we progress through the week. For beginners this will help to find ways to adjust, to take the time needed to be safe and continue on a steady pace. The more experienced students will improve by clearing dysfunctional patterns, finding profound subtleties of the practice and creating a smoother, faster advancement with less injury.

 

Afternoon Sessions

The afternoon sessions will take a gradual, step-by-step approach. There will be ample time to really dive into particular subtleties of the practice, including how we use our spines in forward bends, backbends and twists; bringing light to the dark places by breathing into the back body; protecting our shoulders and doing partner work to help each other learn, especially in the areas we cannot see ourselves.
