Upcoming Inversions Workshop: Carlos Mendez

Melinda Marino

Friday June 26th 4:30-6:30p & Saturday June 27th 11a-1p and 2p-4p.

Open to Beginners and Advanced Practitioners alike!

Carlos has been teaching yoga for over 11 years and has taught in Europe, Hong Kong, the US and Mexico. Carlos' teaching is based on the philosophy that in order to accomplish complex tasks we must build up to them one small step at a time. We can apply these principles to the yoga practice and gradually build up to the advanced practices. The practice is also based on uniting or yoking attention, breath, and movement in the body to create a solid foundation for our yoga practice.

June's Yogi in Residence: Swami BEa

Melinda Marino

I started taking Yoga classes from Jimmy Barkan back in 1985. At first Yoga was simply a way of exercise. After a few years, I started exploring other styles of Yoga and studied Ashtanga Yoga under the tutelage of David Swenson. In 1997, I took my yoga practice into another level and it became a way of life. This journey has taken me to India many times, where under the guidance of the Divine Life Society in Rishikesh I have followed deeper studies about Yoga Philosophy and Sanskrit. Having discovered the deeper meaning of this philosophy, I have acquired a commitment to spread the message of Yoga wherever I am. I have explored many styles of Yoga, only to find the unity in their diversity. I have been trained and/or certified in Bikram, Barkan Method, Ashtanga, Jivamukti, Sivananda, Iyengar, Anusara and Universal Yoga (Andrei Lappa). Studies with  Mano Ardissone at Ayama Yoga in North Miami Beach opened me to new possibilities and have expanded my understanding of the practice.

 

The system of Yoga has been so fragmented that it is my goal to make us all see that all Yoga is only one. I call myself a Teacher of Yoga, not making any differentiation or identifying with a particular style, and teach that way. To me Yoga is an ongoing process through which we can transform our consciousness into an awareness of our true purpose of life here on Earth. This is the new way for the new millennium. We went from the One to the many, and it is now time to find our way back from the many to the unity of ONE. I am also known as Tejas.
