We are always very very honoured to announce the next visit in Bologna, of Kino MacGregor, Ashtanga Yoga Teacher directly Certified by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. A fantastic Teacher and a wonderful performer!
KINO MACGREGOR PERSONAL BIOGRAPHY
Without any background in movement training, Kino MacGregor tried her first yoga class when she was nineteen. Three years later, she joined Govinda Kai's Mysore-style classes in New York City and became a dedicated ashtanga yoga practitioner. After seven months of traditional ashtanga practice, Kino traveled to Mysore, India to meet her true teacher, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois ("Guruji"). Upon her return she began real self-practice by practicing alone and devoting herself entirely to the study of ashtanga yoga. After seven years of consistent trips to Mysore, at the age of 29, she received from Guruji the certification to teach ashtanga yoga. She completed the third series of ashtanga yoga and is now learning the fourth series with Sharath.
Kino is also a life coach and Ph.D. student in holistic health with a Master's Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from New York University. After spending a major portion of her life actively engaged in personal growth work, Kino returned to Miami Beach to create a space dedicated to the integration of yoga, holistic health and consciousness. In 2006, she and her husband Tim Feldmann founded Miami Life Center, where they now teach daily classes and workshops together.
Another DVD has been produced in 2011 and another NEW DVD on 3rd Series has been produced in 2012.
Kino is dedicated to sharing the amazing tradition of ashtanga yoga with its growing number of practitioners. Teaching locally and internationally, she leads classes, workshops and retreats in traditional ashtanga yoga, holistic health and total life transformation. In her unique, inspirational and playful approach, Kino helps her students expand and deepen their understanding of yoga and life.
Kino MacGregor is also Certified Yoga Alliance : ERYT-500. (Note: this workshop is valid for the continuous training requested by Yoga Alliance)

PROGRAM OF THE WORKSHOP
Friday September 3, 2013
6 - 8 PM
Solar Fire: The Sun Salutations
Known in Sanskrit as the Surya Namaskara, the Sun Salutations awaken the deep fire of purification that cleanses the body and clears the mind. Delve into a detail oriented breakdown of the Sun Salutations and understand these simple movements as the basis for deep backbends, powerful handstands and easy hip opening. Sri K. Pattabhi Jois always said that the entire yoga practice is contained within the format of the Sun Salutations. Join this workshop and understand how a conscious practice of the Sun Salutations will unlock the keys to a graceful, effortless practice.

Fly like a Bird: All About Bakasana
Take the time to master the core strength, stable shoulder girdle and steady mind needed to mater Bakasana position. Translated into English as the Crane Posture, Bakasana unlocks the key principles of strength for all other arm balances. Start off with the easiest version of Bakasana and challenge yourself by trying some of the hardest versions of Bakasana like Eka Pada Bakasana A. Jump back and jump into Bakasana and learn how to transition in and out of handstand from the posture. Don’t let Bakasana trick you into thinking it’s too easy--come and learn how to be strong enough to truly fly like a bird. asana, lecture, discussion, all levels]

Ashtanga Yoga Adjustments for Teachers and Students
In this session you will learn how to approach the key postures in the Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series from an anatomical, technical and philosophy basis. Regardless of whether you are a teacher or student this class will give you in-depth information that will either inform your practice or your teaching of the Ashtanga Yoga method. You will delve deeply into the Ashtanga Yoga method, learn how to work directly with the body and integrate valuable information that will take your understand of the practice to a new level. You can only share what you directly experience so the process of teaching, assisting and guiding students includes your personal level of awareness. While there is cookie cutter method that applies universally to all people in all situations, you will experiment with communicating through hands-on assists during your teaching and during your yoga practice.

Strong Steady Grace
Built on the first two postures of the Ashtanga Yoga Third Series, Visvamitrasana and Vashitasana, this class helps you find your true strength in plank and beyond. You will explore these two challenging arm balances from every possible angle, breaking down the anatomical foundation of the postures and investigating the spiritual benefits of their daily practice. You will build up to flowing through these postures in the traditional vinyasa method and then apply the key principles learned through these two postures to other difficult arm balances. These two postures are named after two of India’s most powerful sages and you will attune yourself to their spiritual strength and grace through the practice. asana, lecture, discussion, all levels]
