Apparently, they finally got my email.

This is how they describe him:

Tim Miller is the founder and director of the Ashtanga Yoga Center in Carlsbad, CA.  Tim has been studying and teaching Ashtanga Yoga for over 30 years.  He was the first American certified to teach Ashtanga by Pattabhi Jois – at the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute in Mysore, India.  Tim’s knowledge of this system is thorough, and he teaches it in a dynamic, yet compassionate and playful manner.  I have been fortunate to take classes from Tim on several occasions – at yoga conferences and at his home studio – then in Encinitas, CA.  Tim’s low-key approach, masterful adjustments, and deep insights make him among the best, and well worth a trip to San Diego – or wherever he is teaching – to study from this Ashtanga master.

That’s all true.

As far as I can tell, however, it doesn’t necessarily name an inspiring teacher each month, so I’m going to up the ante and say Tim’s the inspiring yoga teacher for the first seven months of 2013. If not more.

  1. After having just taken an epic teacher training with Tim, I was bitter to leave Encinitas. In the world of ever changing yoga, his “improvements” to the practice are welcome and shows he too has a research center going on. He hasn’t just been teaching yoga for 30 years as a from him to random people in a one way directionality… He listens, processes and recommends. His trainings is a one man show, an anomaly in the world of bringing in experts to teach anatomy etc. Finally, Tim is real maybe even realized real… Not too many of those out there. “Only one” Tim. Sign up for a workshop if you haven’t yet experienced who is Tim Miller..
