Ashtanga yoga is a traditional practice that cultivates and harnesses the deep healing power of synchronizing breath with movement. Students practice a specific sequence of postures at their own pace, while the teacher offers one-on-one insight and adjustments to each student. Practicing in this way is called mysore-style. This unique method of yoga practice allows for students of varying physical abilities to create a sacred space together.
The ashtanga yoga method was first taught by Shri K Pattabhi Jois and continues to thrive through his son, Manju, his daughter, Saraswathi, his grandson, Sharath, and all the students and teachers they’ve touched.
