In 2006 I first arrived in Mysore, India at the AYRI Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute – as it was called at the time. This was how I first came into contact with ashtanga yoga, Saraswathi Rangaswami Jois being my first teacher. My studies at the institute continued with Krishna Pattabhi Jois and Sharath Jois for the remainder of that year.
To date I have spent a total of 2 – 3 years in Mysore, returning regularly to practice at the KPJAYI Krishna Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute. During my last visit, I had the honor of assisting Sarath Jois and received KPJAYI Level 2 authorization to teach ashtanga yoga.
