I hope you make unscheduled time to daydream and ruminate. Time to get lost in your thoughts or in the world at large or in your life. To then get to enjoy the great excitement and adventure of finding yourself all over again, changed at the end of the all the unknowing… I hope you are spreading your toes on the sand/earth/in water and that you get to experience the world, food and friends through the touch of your hands and the feel of their skin. I hope you come to a place with two paths where one is closed by a ‘Do Not Enter’ sign and you decide to take it anyway. I hope you taste rain and sun and lake water, the ocean, or wild strawberries as tiny as little gummy bears with sweetness so precise it’s almost unbearable; that you get to eat watermelon so juicy it drips down your chin and the front of your shirt and makes your hands sticky. I hope you hang out with trees and birds, dogs and cats, and horses, for they know what it’s like to inhabit right amount of space, their eyes are wise with patience and their movements are organized by grace. That you move and dance, sing and scream and that wind and waterfalls and cicadas make music in your ears… That you laugh and cry, sleep and run wild with the sun kissing your back and the sound of voices you love. That you fall in love with yourself, your partner or a new love all over again…

 

This I wish for you and so much more…

 

Happy summer! And big love everyone!

THE ART OF HANDS ON ASSISTS
WITH MILES 

SATURDAY AUGUST 10, 4-6:30PM
THE CURATIVE NYC, (BWAY & WAVERLY)
$45

Touch is an art and a skill that can be learned and refined. It involves a deep sense of listening and sharpening what and how you see. Each person is unique calling for a customized approach. In this workshop we will break poses down in very simple yet significant way as a way to finesse our eyes. Once what we are looking for and looking at become clearer, then we can apply it to our hands so that we can be more effective when we approach someone.  Using the principles of Thai Massage, different parts of our own bodies, the lines of energy in the body, and a playful approach, we will begin to understand what it means to touch people in a way that is meaningful, compassionate, and clean, which also allows them to show up for their own experience. Thus, we will unleash the alchemy of  true healing brought on by touch.

For teachers and non-teachers alike. No partner needed.

STUDY GROUP:
BOTTOMS UP: REVERSING AND PREVENTING YOGI BUTT

WITH OSTEOPATH ERIKA KALKAN AND MILES
THE CURATIVE NYC, (BWAY & WAVERLY)
WEDNESDAY AUGUST 14, 6:45-8:45 PM

This geek-out extravaganza will be a co-led by Miles and Osteopath Erika Kalkan. This month we will focus on hamstrings. Erika will discuss and lead practical ways to work with and heal “yoga butt” or hamstring injuries. As well as ways to open tight hamstrings for those of you who feel like you’ve hit a plateau. Miles will then take what we discuss and turn it into a practice. This is an awesome opportunity if you want to learn how to work with your hamstrings or your student’s hamstrings or if you have questions you want to ask about your own hammies.

CRANIO-SACRAL THERAPY
WITH MILES
THE CURATIVE NYC, (BWAY & WAVERLY)

I’m now offering sessions at my office downtown which is part of a gorgeous wellness space called The Curative NYC.

Cranio-Sacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. It was pioneered and developed by Osteopathic Physician John E. Upledger after years of clinical testing and research at Michigan State University where he served as professor of biomechanics.

Using a soft touch which is generally no greater than 5 grams – about the weight of a nickel – practitioners release restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and it’s effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.

Come on down and get what my Nuqui crew called the Brain Melt. If you want to arrange a session, email me at yogawithmiles@gmail.com
