Ashtanga Yoga is a powerful and healing form of yoga that combines postures (asana), breathing practices (pranayama) and focus (drishti) into a flowing, moving meditation. The word “Ashtanga” translates as “8-Limbed”…a step-by-step guideline for how to live a healthy, compassionate and transformative existence. From the ethical tenets of the “Yamas” (how we interact in the world) and “Niyamas” (how we interact with our Self), to asana, pranayama, and meditation, we are given tools to live a conscious life. The teachings of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga come to us through the late Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois, his son Manju, daughter Saraswati and grandson Sharath, as well as our teachers in the West – David Williams, Nancy Gilgoff, David Swenson, and many other senior teachers. We daily offer thanks to these wonderful teachers and their commitment to the process of a better life through Ashtanga Yoga!

“Have you ever found that one thing in life that resonated so deeply with your first experience of it that it stayed with you always? The practice of Ashtanga Yoga was transformational and life-changing for me. It is a practice that I was fortunate to find at a pivotal point in my life and continue to utilize on a daily basis to this day, almost twenty years later” — Suzan Ferreira

Your Instructor & Guide
Ashtanga Yoga is a beautiful tradition that is life changing is so many ways. I found myself at home within Ashtanga. It’s a rigorous, sweaty practice that leaves you feeling accomplished and cleansed. Practicing the same series of postures allows me to see my progress over time as certain poses become easier, or I find myself able to move closer to their full expression. The familiarity enables me to focus less on my body and more on my breath and my drishti (focus), making the entire practice a moving meditation. My body loves the practice, and I found myself, over time, becoming stronger, more agile, and more mindful, which translated into becoming a better runner and cyclist.
