Day 23 – No Shave Yoga Event – #yogabeardsunite – Micro = Macro

Day 23 – No Shave Yoga Event – #yogabeardsunite – Micro = Macro  
A microcosm is ‘anything that is regarded as a world in miniature.’ A macrocosm is ‘the universe considered as a whole.’ The yoga practice inherently brings our awareness to the unity of the micro and macrocosms. When we bring our attention to the tasks at hand we can sometime feel a sense of triviality in the mundane. Yoga dispels this notion and draws awareness into the essence of each moment. The tiniest particle movement is reflected by the grand trajectory of the planets and stars. There is purpose in small acts that that can lead toward a greater change.
No Shave Yoga Event is a group of yoga teachers who have banded together to help spread the word, grow hairy, raise money and inspire health through the practice of yoga. Our fundraising team is called Yoga Beards Unite and we aim to raise at least $1500 by the end of November. Please help us achieve our goal by donating to our team page at When you post on social media please tag us to show your support and share our/your story to help us in our endeavor. Together we can make a difference! @adampolhemusyoga @brianmilleryoga @davidmiliotis @gregnardi @juankgalan @nativeyoga @willduprey

Greg Nardi returns to Native Yoga Center

Everyone at Native Yoga Center is excited for the return of Greg Nardi this Friday and Saturday, September 25th and 26th, 2015. 

Here is Greg’s bio from his website 

Greg Nardi, founder of Ashtanga Yoga Worldwide, has spent years of dedicated practice under the guidance of Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India. In 2003, he was given authorization to teach from Pattabhi Jois, and in 2009, he completed a level 2 authorization course from Sharath Jois. He is currently learning the advanced series under Sharath’s guidance at the KPJAYI.

Greg perpetually studies and practices Yoga, Eastern Philosophy and Sanskrit mantra chanting. He participates in Georg Feuerstein’s Traditional Yoga Studies course and has studied with Vyaas Houston of the American Sanskrit Institute.

Greg founded Ashtanga Yoga Worldwide, a resource which strives to explore the traditions that give rise to modern Yoga methods, to maintiain the Ashtanga Yoga system as taught by Pattabhi Jois and Sharath Jois, and to make these traditions and methods intelligible to the Western practitioner.

We have been lucky enough to have Greg teach here at Native several times over the years. Included is a link to the workshop schedule that he is offering this weekend.–save-date-september-25th-26th-2015-1430421410.php
