6-8PM Guided Primary Series
8-830PM Q&A

Saturday
9-11am: Mysore Style $50
2-4pm: The Root of Asana – Yogic Breath, Part I $50
This class helps you locate your pelvic floor, your first step towards Mulabandha and your doorway to understanding the inner body, finding calmness of mind and firm yoga postures. Taking base in simple yogic breathing and light movement you will learn how to identify, activate and use the power imbedded in your pelvic region. Through asanas such as Surya Namaskara, jump-thrus and forward bends you will learn how to optimize your innate potential for strength, stability and energy. All Levels Welcome.

‘That which is the root of all existence and on which the restraint of the mind is based, is called The Restraining Root (Mula Bandha) which should always be adopted since it is fit for Raja Yogins.’  – Sankaracharya/Aparoksanubhuti

Sunday
6-8am: Mysore Style $50
2-4pm: The Breath Body / Yogic Breath, Part II $50
Finding your ‘Breath Body’ increases your aptitude for lightness and grace. But what is the breath body and how do you find it? This session explores the subtle body’s effect on your yoga practice. The connection between flexibility and breathing cannot be overestimated – a compromised breath makes for a stiff body. Working with simple twists and backbends you will learn how to identify, release and use your body’s innate potential for easing deeper into bending through breath awareness. You will leave this class with a blueprint of how to practice with more pleasure and less pain, while bridging the physical with the energetic. All Levels Welcome.

‘As the big bird soars, so the Yogin defies death like a lion over an elephant. This is how Uddiyana Bandha should be performed.’ – Yoga Chudamani Upanishad

Full workshop: $250

Friday 6 – 730PM $55
Ganesha Puja – Remover of Obstacles
Join us for a Friday evening kick-off Ganesha Puja for the removal of all obstacles, and to invoke the blessings of wisdom, community and friendship. Eddie will lead us through a traditional worship of Ganesha, which will include chanting, meditation, a short explanatory lecture, and prasad. Please feel free to bring offerings of flowers, fruits, nuts or vegetarian baked goods (no eggs, but dairy is ok), and dress your Miami puja best! 

Saturday 8AM-12PM $55
Mysore Style with Eddie, assisted by Tim and Kino.
Start times are on first come first served basis: 8am 9am 10am 10:30am

Saturday 4-6PM $55
Lecture: Yoga and the Nervous System 
The various practices of yoga, such as asanas and pranayama, largely address the various branches and activities of the autonomic nervous system. In this lecture, we will look at these complementary branches, and how we can effectively hack our own nervous system to manage stress, anxiety, mental confusion, inflammation, fatigue, and other obstacles. The yogis used the physical practices of yoga to create conditions for inner purpose and inner wisdom to shine through in the field of the mind. In this lecture, we’ll examine how they did this – and how we can attempt to do it, too. 

Sunday 8-10AM $55
Led Primary
 
Sunda10:30AM – 12:30PM $55
Yoga & Therapy
This class will be part practice, part lecture. We will practice simple movements and postures that mimic the movements we first learn as infants, when the brain begins to wire itself through information processing. Much of this processing is the foundation of our sense of our place in the world, and our relationships with people and objects. We will also practice some simple postures that correct imbalances between posture and breathing, focusing on the movement of the thoracic and pelvic floor diaphragms, that are helpful for receiving lower back pain, and improving range of spinal motion. Bring your posture questions! 
 
Eddie Stern is the co-founder of Ashtanga Yoga New York, the Brooklyn Yoga Club and the Broome Street Ganesha Temple. He studied Ashtanga Yoga under Sri K. Pattabhi Jois of Mysore for 18 years. Eddie has published several books on Pattabhi Jois and Astanga Yoga, including a translation of Pattabhi Jois’s 1960 treatise, Yoga Mala. He co-founded with Deepak Chopra the Urban Yogi project, which introduces inner-city youth to yoga and meditation, teaching them powerful transformative tools that they then bring back into their communities as teachers themselves. Eddie also leads a team that writes health and wellness curriculums for under-served public school districts, based on yoga and mindfulness, which has been implemented in over 100 schools in the past year. 

Do not miss this event! This workshop is one of a select few workshops at Miami Life Center which we recommend to every student of yoga. A close and direct student of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, he has established himself as a leading authority on the limbs of yoga worldwide. We are honored that Eddie has taken time to share his grace with us and urge very student, beginner or seasoned, to partake this weekend immersion.

The Inner Body

Underneath the skin, beyond the physical body lies something more subtle and hard to define. There is an unfathomable depth to the human spirit. Yoga is a quest for the deepest state of connection. This class teaches you how to journey into the inner body in a real and pragmatic way. As the waters of the mind still, you are able to perceive the depth level of reality. Cultivate a heightened state of awareness through a guided meditation. Apply this more refined and precise level of awareness to the practice and truly enter the inner body. All levels.

Ashtanga Magic: Breath, Posture and Gaze 

Delve into the secrets of the Ashtanga Yoga lineage, known as the Tristana method, and discover the magic of breath (pranayama), posture (asana) and focal point (dristhi). Break down the energetic alignment of key postures in the Ashtanga Yoga method and build the foundation for a meditative, awareness based practice. Starting off with the Sun Salutations and progressing through the Standing Postures, Kino guides you into a devotional practice that mergers the physical and subtle bodies and honors tradition while embodying the present. All levels.

Be Strong

The yoga practice is a physical discipline with a spiritual intention. Strength in yoga is never just about getting the postures, but is instead an inner journey. By challenging your limits of what you know as possible you meet yourself at a deep level and discover hidden stores of strength. The purpose of this class is to bring you closer to the true spiritual realization of your own innate power center within. Careful emphasis on alignment, the development of the illusive bandhas, healthy breathing and firm grounding in the spiritual tradition of Ashtanga Yoga make this class a unique offering in the world. Delve into many arm balances, inversions and other key strength asanas from a technical and spiritual approach. Leave with a direct experience of what it means to truly be strong.

Ashtanga Yoga Full Primary Series 

Surrender to the traditional Ashtanga Yoga method with careful emphasis on the traditional vinyasa method and have fun along the journey. Experience the integrity and purity of the Ashtanga Yoga practice and be prepared to sweat.

 Be Flexible

If you think that flexibility just isn’t for you or feel blocked on key poses like forward bends or bends this is the perfect class for you! Learn how to cultivate the calm and equanimous mind and tap into an inner state of infinite possibility. There is a place of infinite peace within, you just need to discover it. Instead of forcing your body into submission, change the paradigm and set yourself and your body free. Surrender is the magic word that opens the locked doors of the inner body. Dive deeply within and discover what it means to truly be flexible.

FEE: Full Workshop $270 Single Session: $60 TIMES ARE TBD!

Reminder: This workshop is being held at Miami City Ballet in Miami Beach. This workshop will not be held at Miami Life Center
