Every teacher of yoga is first and foremost a student of yoga. Only with a firm grounding in the personal experience of the practice can a teacher truly be born. I am thankful every year when I return to Mysore, India, and am a student.
The magic of the shala (meaning "house of yoga") at the K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute has transformed my understanding of yoga from the moment that I first traveled there.
When I share Ashtanga Yoga with students all over the world in my teaching, my writing, and my videos it is my intention to give them a taste of the magic of Mysore.
After nearly 12 years of teaching I am happy to announce the release of my first book on the technique of Ashtanga Yoga, set to be released in May.
