Gotu Kola

In India, the Gotu Kola herb is considered the premier herb. Yogis use it to aid in meditation. It is said to develop the crown chakra, which is the energy center at the top of the head. It was noted that elephants like to munch on its leaves, thus the association with memory and longevity. This creeping tropical plant grows in Madagascar, India, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, the Himalayas and many parts of South Africa. Mentioned in the Ayurvedic texts, it’s been used for thousands of years in India and China for treating open wounds, improving mental clarity and treating skin ailments.

Barefoot Yoga’s Inspiring Teacher of the Month:
Tim Miller

Tim Miller

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.

Tim Miller and Guruji

“The practice itself, done consistently and accurately, is the real teacher.” ~ Tim Miller, Yoga Teacher
