Tao's Center is honored to host one of the most senior Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga teachers, Chuck Miller, for his third workshop at Tao’s Center. The workshop will focus on getting back to the roots and essence of Ashtanga yoga. It is a unique opportunity for practitioners of all levels to reveal an often over-looked core dimension of yoga, especially for teachers and experienced practitioners.
This workshop is meant for participants with prior of at least one year of regular practice. The five-day workshop daily schedule includes morning and afternoon sessions, breakfast, dinner, and free island time.
The three pillars, the principles of practice, can be thought of as "anchors" for the mind, that keep you heading in the correct direction. Chuck calls these "breath, roots, core", the uniting of all three into one!
This will be your exploration. Using the precise sequence of breath movements as taught traditionally, not rushing to "get it done". Rather, "unpacking" the sequence, looking deeper into it, experiencing it in a more intelligent way, honoring the philosophical roots of the practice, experiencing philosophy and practice as one thing.
Chuck does not care how far you go nor how fast you go. That you understand the direction and quality of effort is more important. It will start slower, it must. One cannot look deeply inside if one continues to run in the same grooves. You need to step out of the regular, habituated patterns of practice in order to evolve (love is in there, in that word!) and go deeper into the essential truths. Come on. Give it a try. See if you are willing to be a beginner!
The first days will start slowly as a led class, evolving towards "Mysore style" as you progress through the week. This will enable clearing dysfunctional patterns, finding profound subtleties of the practice and creating a smoother, faster advancement with less injury.
In the afternoon sessions, you will dive into particular areas of practice, that will include the way you use your spines in forward bends, backbends, and twists, bringing light to dark places by breathing into the back body, protecting your shoulders and doing partner work to help each other learn, especially in the areas you cannot see yourselves.
Chuck has been practicing yoga earnestly since 1971. He met Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in 1980 and studied intensively with him for over 18 years, including numerous extended and familial encounters in America, and nearly two years spent in visits to Mysore in South India. Chuck enjoys teaching with a focus on the holistic nature of Ashtanga yoga, presenting it as a philosophical system as well as a strong practical method. Chuck is known for his gentle but deliberate hands-on adjustments which are both reassuring and challenging.
This retreat will take place in Paros Island, Greece. Paros kept its authentic Greek atmosphere, yet offers anything you may need or think of. There are sport activities of various kinds, such as water sports, scuba diving, and specifically wind and kite surfing, being one of the preferred locations for wind-surfing professionals and fans.
Paros is also great for those who want to develop their creativity and being spiritual by nature, as it accommodates many artists, craftsmen, and art schools, offering shorter or longer art courses, from painting to sculpturing, from ceramics to wood-work.
During this retreat, you will be served two daily meals.
You may enjoy a wide variety of treatments and therapies at the center, given by professional and experienced therapies for an additional cost.
For getting to Tao’s you first need to get to the Island of Paros. This can be done through Athens or in the summer time also through the neighboring islands of Mykonos and Santorini.
Daily flights of Olympic airlines or Skyexpress fly 4-5 times a day from Athens airport. The flight is half an hour long.
Daily ferries from Piraeus port to Paros travel all year round. The trip is 4 hours long. In summer time, faster ferries – 3 hours long – are available also from Rafina and Lavrio ports.
From Athens airport to Piraeus you can use the metro, bus (98A) or a taxi. By metro, it takes about 1 hour, by bus or taxi 1.5 hour to 40 minutes, depending on the traffic.
From Athens airport to Rafina & Lavrio ports it’s best to take a taxi.
