Community Guidelines

Here for all of us is just enough structure to make our little online community thrive:

  1. Participate as often as you can by sharing information, events, perspectives, photos, videos, "likes."
  2. Start or join a group or forum discussion whenever you please.
  3. Invite others to join the community!


Share your thoughts, observations, insights, moments, fears, accomplishments, stories, poems, just about anything you like, with other yoga practitioners here in our community. Blogging can be therapeutic in its own right. It can also inspire others in many subtle and not-so-subtle ways. It can connect people, it can make internal connections for people. Whether you are a regular blogger, an in intermittent one, or haven't done it before at all you are encouraged to dive in here. You are in good company.

1. What brought you to the practice of yoga?
I graduated from physical therapy school from UW Madison. During the course of my schooling I completely stopped sports and fitness activities. I never had the intention of teaching classes but when the WAC opened across the street from Froedtert where I was working, the GM gently nudged me into teaching group classes. In 2002 she nudged again, this time to get my yoga certification. I wish I could tell you I went willingly. But I can tell you that it completely changed my an individual...and how I approach taking care of others.


2. Who are some of your yoga teachers?  
My teacher is Stephanie Adams, from Hood River OR. I recently had the blessing of hosting her here in Milwaukee, completing further training for individuals I have trained/instructed. It felt full circle. 
Local teachers: Tammy Limbaugh was the first teacher I absolutely fell in love with. I love Shayna Broadwell's knowledge of anatomy and integration of power. And of course Melanie Landgraf, who I now have the honor of teaching in her space.


3. How would you describe the form of yoga you teach currently?
I teach 3 classes a week, all different from each other. 530am power class full of arm balances and inversions. An afternoon soft and therapeutic class. Mat fusion class with the intention of using mats and props to build strength.  {read on}

    We applaud and, through our Annual Grant Fund, support the work of KATE WERNING in creating "Circulo de Mujeres (women's Circle)," a yoga program for Spanish-speaking women on Milwaukee's south side.

    In Kate's words, "The goal of the group is to create connections – connections internally with our own

    bodies, minds, and souls; as well as connections and relationships with each other. One of the biggest challenges facing the immigrant community is isolation and depression – which can only

    be overcome through the combination of personal and internal liberation partnered with support and community. In this way we are attempting to create a foundation for both."


    omTownie, Ali Modell interviews her teacher, Tias Little for our friends at ILLUMINE Magazine

    Being connected to a community and plugged into a teacher is vital to the yogic process, something Tias Little knows a lot about, as the founder of Prajna Yoga in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Little began his yogic studies as a youth, and as an adult, Little and his wife, Surya, studied within the Ashtanga yoga system. Ashtanga was a vital source of inspiration and maturation, as it helped them establish a consistent daily practice and connection to a teacher. Now, as a practitioner, he works closely with his Zen and Sanskrit teachers, who continue to inspire him. Little’s focus as a yoga teacher includes in-depth anatomical detail stemming from his training as a bodyworker, paired with in- depth meditation instruction stemming from his training in Buddhist meditation and classical yoga. He continues to honor the Krishnamacharya lineage, the father of the Ashtanga and Iyengar styles of yoga, which form the basis of most modern styles of yoga. Little is also influenced by various other somatic modalities, which combine to form a rich tapestry of teachings. {READ the INTERVIEW}

    Karma Yoga Opportunity...

    Posted by Pam miller on September 3, 2015 at 5:55am 0 Comments

    Wondering if anyone is interested in a volunteer yoga opportunity at the Shorewood Meta House!! They are looking for a yoga teacher to work with a small group of clients who are living there temporarily.  I offered my services teaching there and was looking forward to it, but new circumstances are getting in the way of me being able to follow through.   If you are interested, please email me at and I will help connect you to the right person.  Thanks!! Namaste, Pam Miller…
