This photo is of Tim Miller 3 years ago on his first visit to Native Yoga Center which was held at the Civic Center on Jupiter Beach. It was such a huge honor for us to host our teacher in our hometown. I will never forget the first time I met Tim at his studio on E Street in Encinitas, California. Tamara and I had just returned from our first visit to India to study with Shri K. Pattabhi Jois. We were on top of the world as our practice in India gave us insight into how amazing the Ashtanga lineage truly is. Everyone in Mysore kept telling us that if we lived in San Diego that we have to study with Tim when we return. The first thing we did upon landing in San Diego was travelled to Tim’s study to practice Mysore with him. His shala had the best vibe I could ever had imagined. Here was a man that had fallen in love with Ashtanga some 30 years ago and he was continuing the tradition here in the states. His students were so unbelievably talented and his presence was sublime. I had been struggling with Kukkutasana like crazy and Tim came over and adjusted me so deeply in the pose I had the most incredible and profound adjustment and experience that in that moment I realized I had found my teacher. I love Tim and am so stoked to have him be returning to Native Yoga for his third visit. Yeah Tim!!!
