Miami Life Center : Ashtanga Elements

Posted Jun 11 2010 12:00am

IMG00073-20100608-1830  I attended Patrick Nolan's Ashtanga Elements class last Tuesday PM @  Miami Life Center  in South Beach.

Ashtanga Elements is described as a series of flowing postures based on traditional Ashtanga Yoga . The class develops a relationship of meditative awareness between the body & mind in order to help one develop a deeper sense & level of self.

In 2009 ,Patrick Nolan made his first of what would be several trips to Mysore , Indian in order to study with Saraswathi & Sharath Rangaswamy . His class had most of the elements of a led primary series along with some influences from Sivananda Yoga. Being the traditionalist that I am now , I appreciated his use of Sanskrit chants , counting & asana.

Greg Nardi was also at class ; and it was wonderful to see & feel him practice. He was authorized to teach Ashtanga in 2004 by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. 

Miami Life Center truly lives up to its mission statement of being a supportive community based on yogic ideals of living. The energy of the teachers & students that I met that afternoon was so positive & cool. The space is very chill & unpretentious; just right for this incarnation of South Beach.
