Ashtanga Yoga: a Physical & Mental Work-In

I took my first Ashtanga class in my twenties, looking for a good workout, but instead got a “work in”. I walked out feeling like I came home to myself. I felt a deep sense of inner serenity and wisdom and wanted more.
Lucky for me, there was an authorized Ashtanga teacher and a supportive yoga community in my city, so I dedicated myself to regular practice. Making time for yoga hasn’t always been easy, but I return to my yoga mat (and now my meditation cushion) to feel more fully human.
While an interest in physical postures brings many of us to yoga, the long-haulers and I stay for the life lessons: exploring our growth edges with breath and movement, being present with what-is, and living the most peaceful life possible.

Traditional Yoga for Modern Times

Ashtanga Yoga is a traditional system of yoga that links breath with movement. It follows a set sequence of postures and is the foundation of vinyasa-style classes. It was passed down from Krishnamacharya to his students and made famous by the Jois family, who have taught this system in Mysore, India, and worldwide for over 70 years.

With the blessings of my beloved teachers trained by the Jois family, including Richard Freeman & Mary Taylor, I humbly and joyfully teach Ashtanga Yoga.

Making bread can be time-consuming. It can require a lot of effort. Not so with this recipe. Some of you might be raising a skeptical eyebrow at me when I say “easy” and “bread.” Trust me on this one. Or better yet, test your skepticism.
