Kino MacGregor

Kino MacGregor is one of only 14 people in the United States to receive Certification to teach Ashtanga Yoga from its founder, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India. The youngest woman to hold this title, she has completed the challenging Third Series and is now learning the Fourth Series. Based at her own yoga teaching center in Miami, she travels throughout the world sharing her message of Ashtanga Yoga.

Without any background in movement training Kino MacGregor tried her first yoga class when she was nineteen. Three years later, she joined Govinda Kai's Mysore-style classes in New York City and became a dedicated Ashtanga Yoga practitioner. After seven months of traditional Ashtanga practice Kino traveled to Mysore, India to meet her true teacher, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois ("Guruji"). Upon her return she began practicing alone and devoting herself entirely to the study and teaching of Ashtanga Yoga. After seven years of consistent trips to Mysore, at the age of 29 she received from Guruji the Certification to teach Ashtanga Yoga and has since worked to pass on the inspiration to practice to countless others. After spending a major portion of her life actively engaged in personal growth work, Kino returned to Miami Beach to create a space dedicated to the integration of yoga, holistic health, and consciousness. In 2006, she and her husband Tim Feldmann founded Miami Life Center (miamilifecenter.com) where they now teach daily classes, workshops and intensives together in addition to maintaining an international traveling and teaching schedule. Her products include four Ashtanga Yoga DVDs (Kino MacGregor – A Journey, A Workshop; Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series; Ashtanga Yoga Intermediate Series; Introduction to Ashtanga Yoga), an Ashtanga Yoga practice card and a podcast on yoga. She is currently working on a fourth DVD. Trailers and excerpts from the DVDs can be viewed at her website (kinoyoga.com) or on YouTube.

Kino is dedicated to carrying the torch of Ashtanga Yoga throughout the world and sharing the amazing tradition of Ashtanga Yoga with everyone who is drawn to practice. In her inspirational and playful approach Kino helps all her students expand and deepen their understanding of yoga and life. Yoga finds its authentic expression through her message of spiritual strength, balanced flexibility, and emotional peace. As a life coach and Ph.D. candidate in holistic health with a Masterʼs Degree from New York University, Kino integrates her commitment to consciousness and empowerment with her yoga teaching. She has been featured in Yoga Journal, Yoga Mind Body Spirit, Yoga Joyful Living, Travel & Leisure Magazine, Ocean Drive Magazine, Boca Raton Magazine, Florida Travel & Life Magazine, Six Degrees Magazine as well as appearing on Miami Beachʼs Plum TV and the CBS Today Show.
