Miron came to yoga asana practice through his many year interest in spirituality, particularly the non-dual tradition originating in ancient India known as Advaita Vedanta. Miron began practicing Vinyasa yoga but was soon drawn to the depth, completeness and meditative nature of Ashtanga Vinyasa Krama. Although a strongly physical practice in many respects, Ashtanga carries with it the essence of Vedantic and tantric traditions, particularly with its emphasis on a steady pranayama as well as the application of the threefold aspect of prana (breath), drishti (eye gaze) and bandha ( internal energetic seals).
