Miami Yoga (originally Miami Yogashala)  was founded by Fred Busch as an Ashtanga Vinyasa School in 2001. After several years of teaching Ashtanga Vinyasa Fred started noticing that certain very valuable poses were not being offered to students due to the sequence structure, and that there was no mechanism to heal certain injuries that would arise within the that 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 and at Fred Busch’s studios Brickell and Kendall Hot Power Yoga Studios.  Fred Busch, believes in the powerful transformational potential of Yoga.

  • Why is Gayatri Mantra so Powerful?

    Gayatri Mantra in Sanskrit

    Why is Gayatri mantra so powerful?

    by Fred Busch

    Yoga Teachers and Yoga Teacher Training Students should appreciate the power of Mantra and how important it can be as a component to your Sadhana (daily practice) and to your Yoga classes.
    Mantras are ways of using sound vibrations to affect consciousness and receive the benefits of peace of mind.  All Mantras are powerful in their own right.  Specifically the Gayatri Mantra is viewed as one of the most important of all Vedic Mantras.  But why is Gayatri  so special and so powerful?
    The most fundamental answer has to do with light itself, which the Gayatri mantra is invoking. Light is an important element because of the power it was over darkness.  Darkness does not exist in the presence of direct light…this is a basic fact.
    Gayatri Mantra is about bringing light into the mind to dispel darkness, which is to say negative energy fields and unconscious patterns.  Light is a metaphor for awareness and shining light (awareness) on the darkness (unconscious patterns and things that hold us back in life) is the intention of Meditation and the key technique to self-realization.
    Once we recognize that darkness and unconsciousness are the same thing..and all that is considered bad or evil in this world is just unconsciousness… we can begin to see the value of bringing light into the mind.
    Gayatri is also especially valuable for Yoga in the Western countries where chanting mantras to Shiva or Krishna may not be easy for everyone.  Gayatri does not invoke any deity…only the Primordial and sacred Light of the Divine itself.
    Gayatri Mantra is often chanted before class at Fred Busch’s Miami Yoga Studios with the teacher instructing the students to join in ‘if you wish’.  Chanting mantras or Om is never required and only offered as an opportunity to experience vibration and it’s effect on the mind.

    Fred Busch’s Miami Yoga Studios are honored to have on our team to only the very best Yogi’s and Yoga Teachers around!  One such amazing teacher is Courtney McDonald, who also happens to be our Manager at Brickell!  We are absolutely blessed to have such a hard working, talented and genuinely awesome  person like Courtney representing us at Miami Yoga.
    Courtney was introduced to fitness and the importance of exercise at a young age, (having a mother that’s a fitness instructor has it’s perks)! Growing up she was always involved in sports from softball, soccer, lacrosse to track. When she was old enough to finally take her mom’s group fitness classes she became really drawn to “body flow” which is a combination of yoga, pilates and tai chi.
    Courtney took her first hot yoga class in 2010  and soon couldn’t wait to find a studio near her home to join. She found that perfect studio in Orlando s where she felt a family vibe and feeling of unity.   Courtney always knew she wanted to follow in her mom’s footsteps by teaching group fitness and once she started yoga she knew that was it, a yoga instructor!
    When the time was right Courtney travelled  to Lima, Peru to study under Fred Busch and was certified in the Fred Busch Hot Power Vinyasa  Teacher Training.   As soon as she returned to her new hometown of Miami, she began to teach Miami Yoga’s Brickell location and has recently taken over full reins as studio manager.
    Courtney explains from her experience, “A lot can happen in a year! All you have to do is believe and work hard!! The more things we are grateful for in life, the more things the universe gives us to be grateful for, this I truly believe!”
