Conscious Relationships / Saturday, February 14, 2015 – Sun & Moon, Gotanda


Introduction To Conscious Relationships
a Workshop with Miles Maeda

Saturday, February 14, 5pm-7:30pm
at Sun and Moon Yoga, Gotanda
Cost: 3,500yen

As human beings, most of us are either in a relationship, pursuing one, or frustrated about not being in one. We invest a lot of time and energy to find a mate, get married, and begin a family to have a complete and fulfilling life. But it is our beliefs and attitudes about ourselves and our partners that affect our ability to be happy.

If we lack intention and awareness, our relationships can quickly fill with boredom, irritation, and even hatred. What we envisioned to be perfect eventually becomes broken. So what does it mean to turn ordinary relationships into conscious relationships? And how can we improve or attract to ourselves a relationship and turn it into a vehicle for our growth?

Consciousness is awareness combined with intention. If we can see clearly then act purposefully, we have conscious behavior. To develop consciousness in a relationship, it requires sharing a common vision, clear communication, and an unwavering commitment to practice. It involves learning to examine oneself, relaxing tensions, and being open and accepting to life. No relationship is perfect, but with steadiness and determination it can become so. The secret is that it all begins with practice.

In this workshop, we will introduce the structure of conscious relationships and how to cultivate them. It can be with friends, family, and of course partners and spouses. We will create a vision with a goal for an ideal relationship which includes guidelines on essential clear communication. Also, we will practice exercises for gaining inner clarity and producing outer radiance; dissolving the seeds of our unproductive habits. Finally, we will examine guidelines to support ongoing success in love―how we can choose to create the perfect relationship. With practice, one can manifest one’s ideal opportunity for growth. Couples and singles are welcome.

Summer Retreat with Miles Maeda / July 19-21, 2014 – Mitake, Tokyo

Mitake 2014

Inner Secrets and Outer Manifestation – The Alchemy of Tantra

Saturday July 19 – Monday July 21, 2014
at Nobori Shukubo, Mitake, Tokyo

Join us this Summer for our fourth annual yoga retreat in Mitake mountain!

Our human life is precious, each and every moment is new and full of possibility.  But we often perceive reality as solid and fixed, our mind is bound by old conditioning and beliefs.  Thus we limit our potential, deny ourselves what we truly want, settle for commonly shared mediocrity.  This relates to our work, our relationships, our entire lives.  We fall into comfortable habits of avoiding what we fear and attaching ourselves to what pleases us.  On the path of spiritual growth, this keeps us stuck; opportunities to experience our fullest human potential are left unrealized.

Tantra is an esoteric path of transformation.  Through it we see reality as fluid, our minds and behavior flexible.  Unlike other spiritual paths which are about denying negative influences, tantra says to embrace them, but with awareness, which loosens the constricting knots of tension in our bodies and mind.  This is the secret of transformation, opening the pathways of our creative life-force energies to allow for their expression and manifestation.  Tantra means ‘continuity’, so instead of having ‘either/or’ mind one has ‘both/and’ mind. So Tantra really means experiencing all dimensions of life in complete fullness, freeing ourselves from our bondage and rigidity, remaining relaxed, open and flowing, residing naturally in the middle, in our center.  We live in full acceptance instead of critical denial.

In this Summer’s retreat we will be introduced to the teachings and practices of various traditions coming from Tibet, India and America to discover how to balance our spiritual life in a world full of distractions.  This will encompass yoga for the body, working skillfully with others; meditation with Tibetan deities to transform our attachments; and teachings about life and love to see a bigger picture of how to truly fulfill our wants and needs.  By bringing increased awareness to our thoughts and actions, we release fear and confusion and develop unconditional love and wisdom.

Course curriculum includes:
Partner Yoga & Venus Kriyas
Deity Practice, Mantra & Meditation
Intentional Living & The Truth About Love
Dream & Sleep Yoga
Healing Circle
Sufi Dancing


Join us for this rich and unique yoga program.  It is intended for all levels of students, beginning and experienced alike.  Bring yourself, bring a friend.  With full alertness and clear awareness we can truly live a life of fulfillment and wholeness.  There is no duality, only totality.

Partner Yoga / June 28, 2014 – UTL Yoga School, Yoyogi


Partner Yoga – Cultivating A Flexible Body & Mind

Saturday June 28, 2014
at Under The Light Yoga School, Yoyogi

Join us in the dynamic practice of partner yoga as a way to stretch and strengthen the body as well as cultivate a flexible mind.

Yoga works on toning muscle, aligning bones, moving the joints, energizing the breath. It also calms the mind, clarifies our feelings and makes intentional our actions. Now add a second person to this equation, and there is a lot of opportunity to interact creatively, playfully while keeping our intention to learn, grow and excel.

We walk our spiritual path alone, but in the physical world we rely on others in work, friendship, and love.
It is an illusion that we can function in the world by ourselves; we must learn to skillfully interact with others to create mutually beneficial outcomes.

And what better way than to do this through yoga! The energy of transformation multiplies exponentially when we include another in the equation. Our practice becomes supercharged and our potential to overcome our obstacles is supported by the other.

In this workshop we will practice a fun and challenging style of partner yoga from the Kundalini Yoga tradition. These exercises use asana, mantra, pranayama and meditation as a way to break through stress and tension and bring forth our creative energy and skillful means.

We learn to relax, be present, and accepting in every moment. We can then see in our everyday lives how these practices support our happiness and growth. This workshop is for all levels, no previous partner yoga experience necessary. All that is needed is an attitude of openness to learn and willingness to play.

Consciousness in Waking & Dreaming / March 29, 2014 – Sun & Moon, Gotanda


Consciousness in Waking & Dreaming – an introduction to dream & sleep yoga
Saturday March 29th, 5:00-7:30pm

A workshop with Miles Maeda at Sun and Moon Yoga Studio, Gotanda
3,500 yen

The mind is the experiencer of our world. Whether it be inner or outer, real or imaginary, our minds perceive all things. And yoga is about mastery of the mind; we practice so as to develop awareness of ourselves and the world around us. So what about all the hours when we are asleep? What about the experiences we have in our dreams, and do they mean anything?

The teachings of yoga say that ordinary dreams are a result of the karmic mind. We get lost in our dreams; our hopes and fears, fantasies and confusions spin on endlessly. Sometimes we don’t recall our dreams at all, we go totally unconscious. But when our practice is developed, we can experience our non-dual mind and clear awareness in both waking and dream states. So practice helps to clarify our intention, demystify our experiences and further develop our mind toward the goal of yoga.

In this workshop we will explore the simple concepts and practice tools to free ourselves from the karmic bonds we experience in waking, dreaming and deep sleep. We will learn simple exercises which are done during the day, before and after sleeping, and in our dreams. By changing our karmic traces, removing grasping and aversion, and strengthening our intention to practice, we will clarify ourselves and our situations, cultivate more awareness in our sleep, and develop flexibility in our consciousness.

覚醒と夢に気づきを – ドリーム&スリープ・ヨガへの誘い

私たちの住む世界を体験するのは心です。内的なものであれ、外的なものであれ、現実であれ、想像であれ、心は全ての事象を受け止めます。そして、ヨガとは心を極める事 − 練習によって、私たち自身と、私たちを取り巻く世界とに気づきを養うのです。では、私たちが眠っている時間はどうでしょう?夢の中で私たちが体験する事に、何か意味があるのでしょうか?

ヨガの教えによると、ありふれた夢はカルマ的マインドの結果だと言います。私たちは、夢の中に迷います − そこでは希望と恐れ、錯覚や混乱が絶え間なく渦巻いています。時に私たちは完全に無意識で、夢を全く思い出す事が出来ません。ですから、練習を通じて私たちは目的を明確にし、体験する事を分かりやすく理解し、ヨガのゴールへと心をひたむきに向かわせるのです。

Unraveling The Conditioned Self pt. II / October 5, 2013 – Sun & Moon Yoga Studio, Meguro


Unraveling The Conditioned Self: Being Karma-Free Pt II

A Workshop with Miles Maeda at Sun and Moon Yoga Studio, Meguro
Saturday October 5th, 5:00-7:30 pm
3,500 yen

From the view of yoga, we live in a unified field of creation but experience it through filters of duality. We see ‘this and that’, ‘good and bad’, ‘you and me’. This causes us to attach to desirable circumstances and avoid the undesirable. This is the basic cause of our suffering. It’s what keeps us wanting what we don’t have and fearing that we’ll loose what we have acquired.

Karma means action. In yogic philosophy, it is believed that negative actions cause negative experiences, positive actions cause positive experiences. So the first step in reducing our suffering is to discontinue our negative actions, speech and thinking. By understanding negative emotions, we can apply the antidote and create positive actions with positive results. When this becomes stable through practice, then one can free themselves from karma completely by letting one’s emotions self-liberate.

In part II of the Karma-Free lecture series we will further explore what is karma and the teachings/tools which help us become free of its entrapments. We will learn prostrations which help prepare our body/speech/mind to practice, a meditation for processing our past karmic tensions, plus simple guidelines (including the Six Realms of Cyclic Existence) to cultivate more positive experiences which will lead toward the possibility of karma-free actions.

Every action, every experience has a result. When we see clearly this big picture, we can use this understanding to change our lives and manifest our dreams.

瞑想を始めよう -マインドのトレーニング方法-
Beginning Meditation – training for the mind








What is meditation? Is it mindful activity, is it peaceful stillness? Is it a state of the mind? What exactly is it?

For many, meditation is not easily explained. And that because all the answers can be true. It can be whatever we need it to be, it can be catered it to suit our unique and individual personalities. Ultimately, meditation is whatever works for us. But the first step is examining how well our mind can concentrate.

Concentration and depression are opposites. If we want to be able to focus our lives, we need to be able to focus our minds. So for starters, meditation is about training the mind to concentrate. Educate the mind to concentrate and you will need no other education. This means that a trained mind can be applied to any activity and bring success and eventually mastery. Thus applying meditation to what we do has rich potential.

In this workshop we will explore the many facets of meditation and what it means to train the mind. We will go over the basics of meditating, practicing traditional sitting technique as well as dynamic movement style. Most importantly we will see how to apply meditation to your practice as well as in your everyday activity, thus opening the door to experience our fullest human potential.

This workshop is open to all levels of experience. Educate yourself to concentrate!
