About Chuck Miller
“I don’t know exactly when I first got interested in yoga. It seems the urge was there from a very early age. I think that is true for many of us. We don’t know what it is that is calling us and yet we definitely feel it. What is interesting is what makes us answer the call! What you can no longer ignore”.
Chuck Miller began practicing yoga in 1971, and studied the Ashtanga vinyasa method of practice and its underlying philosophical system one-on-one with its founder, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, for over 18 years beginning in 1980. By practicing and teaching the method before, during and after the yoga boom, he has developed a simple, effective approach that changes the lives of those who do it.
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.
Yoga teacher since 1988, Chuck is a former Director of Astanga Yoga and co-owned the original Yoga Works in Santa Monica, CA, for over 16 years. He is frequently traveling and teaching around the world.
Asana, philosophy, anatomy, breathing
“Today I like to point to what I call “Sama,” as that sameness that exists everywhere. Finding the sameness between Philosophy and Practice continues to inform my practice and thus my teaching”. Chuck
Sama, what does it mean?
Something about the breath.
