Knowledge Event: Is Yoga Good for Me?

Our very first Knowledge Event taking place at Miami Life Center, a panel discussion on the  question – Is Yoga Good for Me? We gathered a panel of experts in their field of study to share their ideas about if an how the practice of yoga works. Listen to different perspectives alongside each other for an inspiring and thought provoking conversation.

Yoga has become the go-to-fix-all for a growing series of physical, psychological and spiritual pains in the west over the last decade. But is yoga really working and if it is, how is it working? Does modern science and Yoga agree on the benefits of yoga? Tune in to hear what these experts have to say.

The Panel:

  • Bob Schroder – Doctor of Physical Therapy
  • Christine Spadola – Ph.D Social Welfare & Master in Counseling Psychology.
  • Jesus Caballero – Certified Ayurvedic Practitioner
  • Tim Feldmann – Teacher of Ashtanga Yoga
  • Michael Mannino – Ph.D Candidate in Neuroscience

Our next knowledge event will be on Yoga & Body Image. Part of a larger weekend event ‘Yoga & Body Image Confluence’ with workshops and a panel discussion. For more info and registration –

Practicing Ashtanga Yoga with SharathJi in Mysore, India

Monica, Patricia and Esme, all teachers at Miami Life Center are currently practicing Ashtanga Yoga at KPJAYI under R Sharath Jois, for the second and third time. It a sort of pilgrimage Ashtanga Yoga Practitioners from all over the world make to connect with the source of the practice.

Watch this video to find out whats its like to practice in the shala & live in Mysore, India and some practical information you need to know to apply for practice and plan your trip. Making this trip can be intimidating and a bit mysterious but it shouldn’t be! We hope this video help you find the assurance and inspiration you need to make it happen.

On the other hand, traveling to India and leaving home for a month is simply not possible for many of us. Luckily, SharathJi will be coming to the US this spring! He’ll be in Miami May 1-7, as well as Stanford and New York. This is a unique opportunity to touch the source of the practice and be a part of a worldwide Ashtanga Community; to be a part of this passing down of knowledge from generation to generation and feel like were all a part of something bigger than ourselves, of this lineage that has changed so many of our lives. We hope to see you in Miami! For more info and registration –
