Join us at The Shala for this informative workshop on Ashtanga Yoga and the traditional Mysore method of teaching.  Ashtanga Yoga is a complex, challenging, energizing yet meditating form of vinyasa yoga taught by the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and currently taught by his grandson, R Sharath Jois. 

This workshop is designed for the beginner and the seasoned yogi alike. If you are new to Ashtanga Yoga, you will find this workshop will help you gain a deeper understanding of the Ashtanga practice and will prepare you to practice the way Ashtanga Yoga was meant to be taught and learned: Mysore Style!
