"Yoga is possible for anybody who really wants it. Yoga is universal.... But don't approach yoga with a business mind looking for worldly gain."

larry hobbs Since 2002 I have dedicated my life to the study and teaching of  Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. My path allowed me to meet and practice with the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois founder of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and KPJAYI in Mysore India who passed away 2009,.Sharathji   has been my teacher since 2008. Have made 8  journeys to Mysore since 2008,  just having returned form 8th visit  Sept 4th 2018.Received Blessing and Level 1 Authorization to teach from Sharathji, received Authorization Certificate March 17th 2014 assisted  Sharathji Feb 2015 and during my stay and August 2018.  Received Authorization Level 2  March 2017.It is a honor to be a part of this lineage and I will do my best to honor my teacher.  There is always room to learn within the system of Ashtanga ,you are always a student. I also feel at some point in your life make a trip to Mysore go to the source  get the experience and every trip will be different.I will continue my studies with my teacher Sharathji  as Mysore my home away from home. will always remains a special place to me.

Practice is taught traditional method  Sri K. Pattabhi Jois- better known as Guruji had taught and Sharathji continues to teach. Firm but with understanding learning the student and their needs. Led practice will be called in Sanskrit as well as traditional counting method.Mysore practice is at your own pace this is self practice I am here to assist you but its up to you to put the work and dedication into your practice. Mysore practice is essential for your growth not only for the physical body but the internal self .I encourage practitioners to learn to trust themselves as well as their practice and to remember,”Practice and all is coming.” (Sri K.Pattabhi Jois) . Remember the” all is coming “does not just pertain to your asana it includes how you grow as a yogi and the person you become. Do not always think of the physical.  I thank my wife Sita Dale for her loving support and encouragement and for her assistance with Mysore practice at the home Shala which opened Oct 3rd 2011. Please check kpjayi.org for better understanding of Mysore style practice. If you are asked to stop at a certain asana which you have not gotten understanding of it do not take it personally this is for your safety, it will come but your must practice and be patient or you will get hurt, when the body is ready it will come. Through repetition the body adapts and is very good at knowing what it needs.

Check out  Ashtanga Class Schedule .( There are NO Teacher Trainings, Workshops or Retreats offered) Remember be respectful and courteous to everyone any inappropriate behavior and you will be asked to leave .Please avoid Cussing as well.
All are welcome in this Shala we learn from each other, I am not here to sell you anything if you wish to learn come  with a open mind.This system works but you have to do the work and also live the life of a yogi within the world we live. Practice simple as that, just like you don’t just do right some of the time you do right all of the time. Practice correct method daily and you will understand! This is a safe haven , no ego’s no judgement. Please enter as quite as possible place your mat and if you have belongings  take them upstairs to meditation room and storage space, grab a towel if you need , sign in make your own change.
