Guest Teacher Yoga Retreat

Samasthitihi in Every Pose

January 10-24, 2015

with Chuck Miller

About the honoring the beginning retreat program:

A message from Chuck:

We have the method; the practice is to bring the method to Life!
We must fill in the blanks with our own experience, use what we feel in this moment, adjusting the practice to our present condition. And we must do this for a lifetime.

Together we can explore how to gather the wisdom that enables us to trust our inner voice. We can learn to let that inner voice guide us through the ever-changing Sea of Samsara. Halahala! Into the Sea of Amrita Bindhu! The “Nectar of Immortality!” The transformation from Moha to Shantieh . . . Peace!

Why not! If we can loosen our grip on our current Beliefs, “empty our cups” and show up ready to learn, we can do it! Little by Little!

** This is a two-week retreat, but for those students who cannot commit to two full weeks, there is a one-week option.

About the Teacher

Chuck Miller

Sama VinyasaChuck got into yoga through an interest in spirituality. This was first ignited at a young age by an interest in Native American culture and shamanism.

At the age of 17 he started a regular meditation practice and at 19 got disciplined with a regular pranayama and asana practice. Meditation, Pranayama and asana were a significant part of everyday from then on.

In 1980 Chuck met Sri K PattabhiJois(Guruji) on his third American tour in Fairfax California. He taught Chuck the Primary Series the first day of practice and then on Maui 2 months later he taught Chuck the entire Intermediate series in one session.

Chuck traveled to Mysore regularly and in 1983 – 1986 began the study of the advanced sequences. During 1991-1996 Chuck and his partner Maty learnt up to the beginning of 5th series. Guruji also taught them the traditional pranayama practice. They sat with him upstairs in the old Lakshmi Puramshala and practiced it with Guru-ji, or rather tried to keep up with him!

Chuck enjoys teaching with a focus on the holistic nature of Ashtanga Yoga, teaching it as both a philosophical system as well as a strong practical method. Chuck is known for his gentle but deliberate hands-on adjustments which are both reassuring and challenging.

Teaching since 1988 Chuck was Director of Ashtanga Yoga and was a co-owner of the original Yoga Works in Santa Monica, California for over 16 years.

Testimonials

Thanks one more time Chuck Miller for sharing again the poetry, simplicity and incredible depth of this beautiful practice that is Ashtanga yoga.

Sebastian, 2014

Chuck saved me from myself. I was fortunate to attend his April workshops in NoCal. I recorded one of the led primaries and it keeps me focused on protecting my joints and healing massive herniated disk in my back. Without his teaching I would have stopped practicing.
