KPJAYI Authorized Level 2

I'm a Pennsylvania native who has spent the last few years living in quite a few different countries, immersing myself in other cultures, and practicing yoga. I'm most grateful for the bucket loads of compassion and freedom I feel from this practice. Eternally grateful for my family and my spiritual teachers. Honored to receive Sharath Jois blessing to share and teach the Ashtanga yoga method.

Come take practice if you want to gain its wealth.

Mysore class: Monday-thursday 7-9:15am

Mysore, named after the energetic city in South India is the traditional approach to Ashtanga yoga where the practitioner receives one on one instruction of  breath and movement as they move through a sequence of postures. When you do not know what you are doing next, your attention will always be on your teacher taking the focus off of yourself. In this class, the student memorizes the sequence of postures and develops a self practice allowing themselves to focus internally bringing a great depth of awareness, clarity, and internal strength. Through the focus on drishti (looking point) and correct use of breath and movement (vinyasa), this method guides the practitioner to a deep meditative state. This practice does not favor the physically strong and will not shadow any weak spots in the practitioner. Come any time between the 7-9:15am time frame giving yourself enough time to practice. Opening chant starts at 7:30am.

 

LED primary series class & DISCUSSION: friday 7:30-9:30am

Ashtanga Led Primary is not for learning the Ashtanga sequence or postures. This class is for students with an already established Mysore practice. Ashtanga Led helps to establish the correct rhythm of breath and vinyasa count- when to inhale and when to exhale as we move in and out of the postures. It is an essential compliment to a regular Mysore practice. Led class is an opportunity to increase both our internal and external strength, our relationship with the traditional lineage, and surrendering to the method's count and pacing. 

 

120$ per month unlimited

110$ 3x per week per month

90$ per month for college students

(extra 10$ off with autopay)


130$ 10 class pass (for students with an already established practice)

(valid for 3 months)

15$ drop in (for students with an already established practice)

Private instruction is available. contact me for more information.

 

For students new to this practice.. 

No you do not need to know the Ashtanga yoga sequence to come to class. You do not need to know anything about yoga at all. Your first class will generally last between 20-40 minutes. Ashtanga is an ancient healing method that creates a lot of heat in the body, so you may sweat a little bit, or if you're like me- a lot! There will be repetition of postures to help you establish your own practice. You will see other people doing different postures- the postures that they are doing may even look a bit challenging. Do not feel intimidated as we all started this practice as a beginner. Please come any time between 7-9:15am time frame giving yourself enough time to practice. You can also start any day during the month. 

90$ first month to students who are new to the practice.

A commitment of minimum 3 days per week is required.

Yoga

Ashtanga yoga is an ancient system of yoga recorded by Vamana Rishi in the Yoga Korunta. Shri. K. Pattabhi Jois was taught this method by Tirumalai Krishnamacharya during his studies started in 1927.

These are the important aspects of Ashtanga yoga according to Pattabhi Jois.

Pattabhi Jois focused on the purification of the six poisons that surround the heart- Kama, krodha, moha, lobha, matsarya, and mada which translated are desire, anger, delusion, greed, envy, and sloth. When a yoga practice is practiced with dedication and devotion over a long period of time, the heat generated burns away these poisons and allows our inner light to shine through- us at our true nature. 

This method emphasizes Vinyasa, meaning a movement either has one inhale or one exhale. This is meant to cleanse the blood, detoxifying all of the toxins that create disease. The body becomes light, healthy, and strong through the use of Vinyasa. Sweat is a by product of practicing as through the release of toxicities in the sweat, the body becomes purified and cleansed.

There are three main components to an Ashtanga yoga practice- physical posture, looking point, and breath. These three are always performed in conjunction with one another. 

Asanas are the physical postures that we practice on the mat. Asana targets the external as well as the subtler internal parts of the body. The outer appearance of the postures is based on alignment and the internal engagement is created by bandhas, the physical and energetic locks located in the center of the body. Flexibility, strength, and purification of disease is a result of practicing.

Drishti is where we look when we perform the postures. Each posture in the Ashtanga method has a specific spot where we direct our attention and let our eyes focus. Drishti stabilizes the wandering actions of the mind. 

Breath is breathing with sound while keeping the mouth closed. When rechaka and puraka, inhale and exhale, are performed steadily and evenly, this helps with purification. Each inhale and exhale should be the same amount of length. Since the breath allows us to create space in the internal body, the bandhas, or internal locks, provide movement for the inner space. As you cultivate a practice and watch it grow with time, your bandhas become more apparent and allow you to control your body and posture with ease.

After purifying the body, it is possible to purify the nervous system and sense organs. This requires a great deal of determination and diligence. Once this is accomplished, mind control comes automatically.

Moon days

In the Ashtanga tradition of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, we take rest on days when it is either a new or full moon. Humans are made up of 70% water and are affected by the moon's gravitational pull- similar to the waves in an ocean. Our energy is at its fullest on a full moon and lowest on a new moon- both which can lead to misjudgment and injury. I take rest and will not have class held on the days listed below.
