Tias Little

Tias Little

Tias’s unique and skillful approach enables students to find greater depth of understanding and awareness in their practice—both on and off the mat. His approach to the practice is interdisciplinary, passionate, intelligent, innovative, and insightful. He synthesizes years of study in classical yoga, Sanskrit, Buddhist studies, anatomy, massage, and trauma healing. Tias began studying the work of B. K. S. Iyengar in 1984 and lived in Mysore, India in 1989, studying Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga with Pattabhi Jois. Thus his teaching brings together precision of alignment, anatomical detail, and a profound meditative experience.

Tias is a licensed massage therapist and his somatic studies include in-depth training in cranial-sacral therapy. His practice and teaching is influenced by the work of Ida Rolf, Moshe Feldenkrais, and Thomas Hanna. Tias is a longtime student of the meditative arts and Buddhist studies beginning with vipassana and continuing in Tibetan Buddhism and Zen. His teaching style is unique in being able to weave together poetic metaphor with clear instruction filled with compassion and humor. Tias earned a master’s degree in Eastern Philosophy from St. John’s College, Santa Fe in 1998.

Tias is the author of three books, The Thread of Breath, Meditations on a Dewdrop, and Yoga of the Subtle Body.
