Tim Miller Yoga Workshop

Tim Miller has been studying and teaching Ashtanga Yoga for over thirty years and was the first American certified to teach by Pattabhi Jois at theAshtanga Yoga Research Institute in Mysore, India. Tim has a thorough knowledge of this ancient system, 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.” Tim teaches workshops and retreats throughout the United States and abroad.

This is Tim’s first visit to Manchester and we at Yoga Manchester are thrilled at this opportunity to host his workshop for all our students.

This is a rare opportunity to study and practice with a real Yoga Master – not to be missed.
