Kino MacGregor Inspires Yogis to “Be Stronger”

Kino MacGregor video

In this short video talk, Ashtanga yogini extraordinaire Kino MacGregor shares her personal stories on overcoming limitations, obstacles and criticism through her yoga practice. Kino began practicing yoga at nineteen and now practices through the Fourth Series of Ashtanga Yoga. She is the co-founder of the Miami Life Center and is certified to teach Ashtanga Yoga by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois.

After repeatedly being told to “be stronger” by her teachers, she realized that the “weaknesses” in need of strengthening were internal. Through cultivating self-confidence and resolute determination, she found the emotional strength and courage she needed to release false limitations and negative self-concepts.

Kino ends her inspiring talk by telling us that one of the greatest–and most difficult–lessons of the practice is in learning to express our natural state of freedom and truth.
