It is with great pleasure that in this episode I have the privilege to interview Greg Nardi. Greg Nardi is the owner of Ashtanga Yoga Worldwide where he teaches a Mysore program almost daily as well as an internationally renowned teacher of workshops in yoga practice and theory. Greg’s classes and workshops draw on his experience in the oral tradition of yoga that he participated in on numerous trips to study in Mysore, India and with teachers in N. America and Europe, his years of practice, and his ongoing self-study of academic research in contemporary and traditional yoga. Visit Greg online here. In this episode Greg weighs in on his thoughts about Yoga practice, the COVID-19 pandemic and the future of yoga as a teacher and practitioner. We hope you enjoy!

I am really excited that Kate O’Donnell will be returning to Native Yoga Center this week. Kate has a long history of Yoga and Ayurveda practice. She has a relaxed and welcoming nature in her ability to convey information to her students. Kate is very patient and enjoys taking the time to answer questions. Last time I had the chance to practice to study with her I found I left the sessions feeling really inspired to apply the ideas she presented to my own practice and lifestyle. I find that the combined study of Ayurveda in conjunction with Yoga practice brings a tremendous amount of depth to embracing a healthy lifestyle. Kate has done the research and study to help make these “sister sciences” come to life. Please join her this weekend at Native Yoga Center in Juno Beach.

Hi Everyone, this is Tamara. I am spearheading a yoga challenge to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis. Todd wants to paddle like a mad man across the Gulf Stream. I want to ease into a gentle yoga pose in a cozy studio and challenge myself by holding it as long as I can. Sound fun? Hears the challenge…. Will you pledge an amount of money per minute I can hold it? The longest that it was held last year was a little over 30 minutes by Travis Suit, the founder of Piper’s Angels Foundation. If you would like to join in this challenge as a participant you can do so by either joining us at Native on April 25th or you can participate virtually as we will broadcast it LIVE on FB the day of the event by signing up here:
Or click the Pledgeit.org link in the photo to support my pose endurance effort.
Thank you so much for your support. 100% of proceeds will benefit Cystic Fibrosis! Help #inspireeverybreath

Today is the final day to vote Native Yoga Center for Best Yoga Studio in Palm Beach County. To cast your final vote please click here.
We greatly appreciate your support. Tamara and I had the dream back in 2002 when we starting teaching yoga together that one day we would be able to co-own and operate our own studio. After many years of managing studios and studying and practicing with some incredible teachers over the years we decided to make the leap. We opened Native Yoga Center in Juno Beach 13 years ago. We have learned so much over the years about what it takes to run and operate a small business. It is a great pleasure to share our love for yoga with our local community. We would be honored to earn the distinction this year as being the best yoga studio in the area. Thank you so much for taking the time to vote and, fingers crossed 🤞, with your help we may win.
Vote Native Yoga Center for Best Yoga Studio in Palm Beach County! You are the reason we are here and we appreciate you so much. Thank you 🙏❤️❤️

This time yesterday I was contemplating the reality of a possible cat 4 hurricane landing here in my beloved Juno Beach. Today we bodysurfed and celebrated the possibility that we may have been spare the destruction! So happy and appreciative right now.
The Crossing for a Cure 2019 was an INCREDIBLE experience! Thanks to all of your support I was able to raise $18,600 to help those with Cystic Fibrosis receive the care that they require. The amount of love the CF community showered upon all of us paddlers was amazing. Paddling in the middle of the Gulf Stream with no sight of land in 360 degrees was spectacular. Being immersed in the deep blue with a community of like minded athletes was inspirational. I can’t wait to do it again next year!
