Press Release: September 10, 2013
Dr. Jeff Migdow, holistic MD, Reiki Master and Shamanic Healer, is coming to Princeton Center for Yoga & Health (Princeton Yoga) on Saturday and Sunday, October 5th and 6th for three programs in a Prana and Chakra Yoga and Tibetan 5 Rites weekend retreat and workshops’ series. Jeff is recognized for teaching practices which create a profoundly transformational and healing experience.

On October 6th: A Chakra Immersion with Prana Yoga & The Tibetan 5 Rites and Prana Yoga from 10 am to 5:00 pm. Attend one workshop for $50, one day for $90 or all three for $160. These programs are suitable for all levels of practice as well as ideal for yoga teachers. Yoga teachers may use this program to fulfill Yoga Alliance CEU requirements.
Jeff Migdow, MD, combines his expertise in yoga with his background as a holistic physician and knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and many healing modalities to offer a truly complete approach to the ancient and profound discipline of yoga with his first visit to Princeton Yoga.
Dr. Jeff masters a variety of Holistic medicine techniques and alternative treatments such as Homeopathy, Herbal medicine, Nutritional counseling, Iridology and Reiki and maintains a holistic medical practice and has over 30 years of experience practicing yoga. The former director of the Kripalu Yoga Teacher Training Program and current director of Prana Yoga teacher training at the New York Open Center, he writes about and teaches yoga, holistic health, and medicine.
“Princeton Yoga is delighted to continue to bring internationally recognized yoga teachers to our local community,” said Deborah Metzger, owner and director of Princeton Yoga. “I can personally attest to Jeff’s teaching skills, compassion, and profound knowledge of the many aspects and depth of yoga as he was one of the lead teachers in my own yoga teacher training at Kripalu Center in 1991. He is a true yogi who embodies these teachings. This is an opportunity to study with a phenomenal teacher in our very own ‘backyard’ and should not be missed.”
The Tibetan Five Rites are ancient yogic practices which were performed for thousands of years by monks in remote Himalayan monasteries and were considered magical because of their remarkable healing and rejuvenating effects. They work by speeding up and creating balance in the flow of energy through seven energy centers (chakras), thus normalizing hormonal and nerve imbalances.
Prana Yoga uses chakra sound vibrations and basic breathing (pranayama) techniques practiced while holding yoga postures to bring you fully present, creating a deeper experience of prana (life force) within. Developed by Jeff Migdow, M.D. in 1997, this form of yoga sadhana allows one to hold postures longer and with more powerful results.
Princeton Yoga is known for hosting internationally acclaimed yoga educators (as well as local talent) often only accessible and national yoga conferences and retreat centers. It is part of the Center’s mission to offer such experiences at the Orchard Hill Center, its new scenic 5 acre campus – our community’s own little “backyard oasis”.
In December, Leslie Kaminoff will be returning to Princeton Yoga by popular demand. Kaminoff is an internationally recognized yoga educator and specialist with thirty three years’ experience in the fields of yoga and breath anatomy. Kaminoff’s February 2013 visit to Princeton Yoga was sold out – and the yoga center expects the same for his return on December 14, when he will be leading a series of three workshops centered around Exploring Your Breathing Body.
The Center’s new 200 hour professional 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training program with Priti Robyn Ross (who has worked with Dr. Oz and led trainings at the Kripalu Center and the NY Open Center) and Jay Karlinski (also of the Kripalu Center) begins October 18, 2013. It will host the Little Flower Children’s Yoga Teacher Training November 9-10. And – in June, 2014 – a training weekend with Master Paulie Zink, founder of Yin Yoga.
