Miami Yoga – Official Site of Fred Busch’s Miami Yoga Hot Power Vinysasa Yoga Instructor Courses in Miami and around the World. Miami Yoga is the home of the Fred Busch Hot Power Vinyasa system which focuses on delivering all the physiological benefits of yoga along with the deeper and more subtle and often times more valuable aspects of the Yoga practice like meditation and self-awareness.
Miami Yoga Studio’s owned and directed by Fred Busch have been open since 2001. In 2017 Fred’s final Miami studio located in Brickell was sold to Vanilla Sky Fitness. Fred’s original yoga studio opened in 2001 was called Miami Yogashala and was founded by Fred as a dedicated Ashtanga Vinyasa School. After several years of teaching the strict and traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga system, Fred started noticing that certain very valuable poses were not being offered to students due to the sequence structure. This meant that important benefits were not being delivered to students who could greatly benefit from them. Additionally, Fred discovered through his own injuries that there was no effective mechanism to heal within the the AVY system. Fred began to advise certain students to refine their poses and sequences to create an environment that would be conducive to the body’s healing. This development meant that Fred no longer was teaching traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga, so he changed the name of his classes to Fred Busch Power Yoga. Now Fred Busch Power Yoga is taught all over the world in studio’s owned by graduates and alumni of the Fred Busch Yoga Teacher Trainings.
Miami Yoga’s former studio at 301 SW 17th Road is no longer owned by Fred Busch and Silvina Camara, and is now called Vanilla Sky Fitness.
- Fish pose destroyer of disease
Fish Pose – The Destroyer of Disease
Fish Pose, also known as Matsyasana has a great nickname… it is called the Destroyer of Disease! In Hatha Yoga there are actually two very important poses which share that name of ‘Destroyer of Disease’. In addition to the Fish Pose, there is also a pose called Peacock (Mayurasana) that also is renown for benefits to health.
Fish Pose is the called the Destroyer of Disease because of it’s actions on the Thyroid Gland. The Thyroid Gland is known as a master gland because of the many important roles it plays in the body. The Thyroid gland produces many critical hormones that regulate the internal functioning of the body.
One of the main differences between Yoga Asana and other forms of exercise is how Yoga works on the endocrine system and the major glands. Postures like Fish Pose and also Shoulder Stand Pose act on the thyroid gland by forces of gravity and pressure. These changes stimulate the glands to work more effectively by recharging them with fresh blood and energy.
Exercise every day is one of the most important things we can do for our overall health. When this exercise regimen includes Yoga poses then the benefits are maximized. The more comprehensive the system of exercise is, the more valuable it is for the human body.
This is precisely why a well crafted sequence of Power Yoga or Vinyasa Yoga can have very powerful and beneficial effects of those who practice.
