Guest Teachers

Tim Feldmann

Tim Feldmann is the director of Miami Life Center, the yoga shala he founded with his wife Kino MacGregor and Matt Tashjian. 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.

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.

Stuart Girling - The Shakti Shala

Stuart Girling

Yoga Interviewer . Yoga Anatomy Teacher . Bodyworker
Hi my name is Stuart and I am the owner and developer of this site. I am a bodyworker specializing in the treatment of yogis with injuries or tension patterns (more often not from yoga). I have practiced Ashtanga Yoga for fifteen years or more and also teach Anatomy & Physiology on Yoga Teacher Training Programs and Workshops. The concept for  the page  love yoga anatomy arose because I am always searching the net for yoga anatomy related articles and thought wouldn’t it be great to have all that useful information in one place. I’m sure I’ve bitten off more than I can chew so it is going to be tough to deliver what I envision.
