3 Month API Online

Online 3 Month Ashtanga Practitioners Intensive

With Tim Feldmann, Kino MacGregor and special friends Edwin Bryant, Chase Bossart, Ajay Tokas and More

July 26 – October 16 2020

Miami Life Center is excited to announce that we are going online. This new course brings all the experience, tradition and personal attention that you would expect from MLC and integrates digital learning with the yogic teachings Tim and Kino have perfected over the past 20 years.

Our philosophy is based in tradition. The subject of yoga is vast and worthy of a lifetime of learning. An established personal practice is the most important foundation for the yogi’s journey. You will join a comprehensive program aimed at preparing you for a journey into the dimension of Ashtanga Yoga – as a life style, a world view and potentially a profession. You will complete this course prepared to continue the art of learning along this ancient path. You will learn the Vinyasa counts and technical foundation for key asanas of the primary Series in their original context. Tim Feldmann, Kino MacGregor and Miami Life Center present a roster of teachers who dedicate their lives to the spiritual practice of yoga. The intention is to provide the students with an education, not with a certification. Only R. Sharath Jois & the K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, India, can grant you an official certification or authorization to teach Ashtanga Yoga.

You will be established in daily practice and technique for the principle postures of the Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series. You will learn classic yogic breathing techniques, the traditional method of Sanskrit Vinyasas counting and fundamental applied anatomy. You will study classic Yoga Philosophy as per Patanjali and learn safe alignment of key postures from the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga. 

This course will challenge and inspire you. It will require you to maintain a daily practice and teach you balance your daily life with your yoga practice, while connecting you to some of the worlds most respected yoga teachers.

Upon completion you will:
Be firmly established in a personal Mysore Style Ashtanga Yoga practice
Have a solid grasp of the fundamental yoga asanas of Ashtanga Yoga
Understand how anatomy and physiology relate to yoga practice
Understand how to look at students’ bodies on a physical and an energetic level
Draw upon basic knowledge of the subtle body and yoga philosophy
Have a basic understanding of the art of pranayama
Learn the traditional counted Sanskrit Vinyasa system

Through yogas experience-based approach, you will also experience first-hand the transformative physical, mental, and spiritual effects of an intelligent yoga practice.

Application Checklist:
– Application form/questionnaire filled out and all pages signed (link above)
– Head shot
– Teacher recommendation: a recommendation from a teacher who knows the student helps us with a look into their practice and commitment to yoga. We prefer a recommendation from an ashtanga based teacher if they have such but in the lieu of that whomever they practice is fine. We like to hear about how long they have worked together, what the experience has been from the teacher perspective, what they consider the students potentials and challenges to be, whether they find them physically and mentally ready to pursue this intensive, and whatever else the teacher finds relevant.
