Husband and wife duo Kino MacGregor and Tim Feldmann both found yoga during some of the most difficult times in their lives. Feldmann was recovering from a near-fatal accident when a friend introduced him to yoga. “Since then, I have pursued yoga as my main purpose in life,” he says. “It is the place I go to learn to heal and to be with myself and other people.”
MacGregor struggled with depression and says a moment of “spiritual desperation” brought her to the practice. Their combined 20 years of work and commitment to yoga have culminated with the opening of their new studio, Miami Yoga Garage, which focuses on the Ashtanga traditions of Asana, Vinyasa, and Tristana.
“We are very grateful and excited about the possibility to create a space where students from all over Miami and all over the world can move deeper into the spiritual practice of yoga,” says MacGregor.
The couple formerly worked from a shala on Miami Beach, but says their new Wynwood space is more inspiring. “The creative, fun, and alternative energy that pervades this neighborhood is invigorating,” says MacGregor. “Since our opening, we have collaborated with musicians and artists during Art Basel and yogis from many different yoga styles and methods.”
The couple plans to focus on classes, workshops, and collaborations and is working with the online yoga network Omstars to connect with students virtually.
