Tim Miller has a thorough knowledge of the ancient system of Ashtanga Yoga, which he imparts in a dynamic, yet compassionate and playful manner. "My goal as a teacher is to inspire a passion for practice. The practice itself, done consistently and accurately, is the real teacher," says Tim.
Astanga Yoga begins with purification of the physical body through dynamic series of postures and breathing. As a student of yoga for well over 20 years, Tim Miller was the first American certified to teach Ashtanga Yoga in the United States and personally certified by Pattabhi Jois at the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute in Mysore, India. Tim is international recognized as one of the finest teachers of this system. His teaching, though firmly grounded in tradition, is eclectic, creative and warm. Since 1981, Tim has been the Director of the Ashtanga Center in Encinitas, California. For Tim, “Yoga has been a profound gift that enhanced (his) life in every way and he believes it is a great privilege to be able to share this gift with others”.
Tim is featured regularly in Yoga Journal offering wisdom insight and knowledge on the Ashtanga Yoga tradition and practice. Recently featured in People magazine, Tim Miller’s personal practice is graceful and inspirational.
Tim teaches workshops and retreats throughout the United States and abroad. He is invited to teach at national and international events hosted by Yoga Journal and offers several Ashtanga teacher intensive trainings annually.
