Kino MacGregor on The Niyamas



In this episode of Chat & Chai: Yoga Talks from Miami Life Center, Kino MacGregor talks about The Niyamas – the second limb along the 8 limb path of Ashtanga Yoga according to Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. This talk will leave you inspired to practice other aspects of yoga besides the postures, and you’ll take away some concrete practices for dealing with difficult real life situations.

Kino founded Miami Life Center with her husband Tim Feldmann in 2006. She also recently founded OMstars.com – the world’s first yoga TV network. You’ll find courses on the physical practice of yoga, but also the philosophy and lifestyle of yoga. OMstars gives the world yoga that is accessible and a better understanding of what it means to practice yoga on and off the mat.

Which goes to show the impact Kino has had on the world of yoga. She gives the world the inspiration and energy it needs to work for a more peaceful and loving experience. She sheds light on the spiritual path of yoga and how it can be practically applied to our modern world.

This is part of a larger initiative we’ve had going on at Miami Life Center. This summer we took 8 weeks, to look at the 8 limbs of Ashtanga Yoga according to Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. We wanted to bring more attention to the teachings of yoga, to better understand why we get on the mat, and what the path of a yogi is supposed to look like in practice not just in theory. So be sure to check out the other episodes we’ll have coming out on othe other limbs of Ashtanga Yoga.


Tim Feldmann on The Yamas



In the first episode of Chat & Chai: Yoga Talks from Miami Life Center, Tim Feldmann first introduces the 8 limbs of Ashtanga Yoga according to Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras and then dives into the first limb – The Yamas. These are key teachings every sincere yoga practitioner should be familiar with.

The Yamas are the moral and ethical codes for a yogi. They are social disciplines that guide us in our interactions with the outside world and with ourselves. Tim presents these teachings with clarity, personal experience and real life application.

Tim is the director at Miami Life Center, which he founded with his wife Kino MacGregor. No doubt, he is an essential part of this community. Without him we wouldn’t be such a strong, supportive and dedicated community of yogis going down this spiritual path. He leads by example, teaches with compassion and is always making us laugh. So it’s not often that he sits down and talks about the philosophical aspects of this practice but when he does its always inspiring.
