About the Author

TIAS LITTLE's unique and skillful approach enables students to find greater depth of understanding and awareness in their practice, both on and off the mat. His approach to the practice is inter-disciplinary, passionate, intelligent, innovative and full of insight. Tias synthesizes years of study in classical yoga, Sanskrit, Buddhist studies, anatomy, massage and trauma healing. Tias began studying the work of B.K.S Iyengar in 1984 and lived in Mysore, India in 1989 studying Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga with Pattabhi Jois. Thus his teaching brings together precision of alignment, anatomical detail and a profound meditative experience.

Tias is a licensed massage therapist and his somatic studies include in-depth training in cranial-sacral therapy. His practice and teaching is influenced by the work of Ida Rolf, Moshe Feldenkrais and Thomas Hanna. Tias is a long time student of the meditative arts and Buddhist studies beginning with Vipassana and continuing in Tibetan Buddhism and Zen. His teaching style is unique in being able to weave together poetic metaphor with clear instruction filled with compassion and humor. Tias earned a Master's degree in Eastern Philosophy from St. John's College Santa Fe in 1998. Tias is the author of three books, The Thread of Breath, Meditations on a Dewdrop and Yoga of the Subtle Body.

Reviews

"Tias Little is a necessary bridge between East and West. By being steeped in yoga practice, meditation, and Western anatomy, he digs deep into the mystery of being and unearths the wisdom he shares in this book. This book is immediately accessible to the beginner and yet will keep on delivering provocative inspiration throughout your lifetime. I am so happy and honored to be on the path with Tias."--Rodney Yee, author of Moving toward Balance

"The body and spirit are exact mirrors of each other--a fact much more apparent to the ancients than to those of us distracted by our modern materialism. Tias even-handedly blends the anatomy we know today with the anatomy of the energetic body. His many years of experience imbue this book with an easy authority."--Thomas Myers, author of Anatomy Trains
