I watched the video, Steph. Is this really someone you study with or just someone you follow? He definitely gives off a very calming energy. Thanks for sharing this with us. It's always good to be exposed to new teachers. You never know who will resonate with your own energy.

Good morning Joanne (and all),

It is my good fortune that Tias is actually my teacher with whom I study in person anytime he comes to Chicago, and--for the last two summers--in Santa Fe where his home and studio are. I received my 200-hr yoga teaching certification from him and his school (Prajna) last summer in Santa Fe. Of course, Tias is a teacher to many all over the country and the world. You should look at his schedule. Maybe he will be coming to your neck of the woods sometime for a workshop and intensives?

Tias's teachings are grounded in Buddhist philosophy. His teacher trainings do not just cover the asana part of yoga (which is only one part of the 8-fold path), but also meditation, chanting, Buddhist/Vedic philosophy as well as poetry (often times in his trainings, we'll talk for over an hour about a poem or a koan) and anatomy. He's amazingly brilliant, quietly funny, a really good teacher (which is so rare), and a very gentle soul who is down-to-earth and easy to talk to.

I encourage you all to explore Prajna yoga and take a class/workshop with Tias (and/or Surya, his wife) anytime he is in town near your home (or, even better, get ye to Santa Fe!).
