Paramaguru R. Sharath Jois, our cherished teacher from Mysore India, joins us again this year in Miami! We are beyond excited to present Sharath’s teachings to you. Help us welcome him! Practice with SharathJi in this week long immersion in the traditional Ashtanga Yoga method. Experience six guided classes of Primary Series and/or Intermediate Series, along with one Conference where you can ask questions and meet this living Master of the Ashtanga Yoga lineage. Sharath Jois is the Director of KPJAYI, the Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, India. SharathJi taught alongside his grandfather, Krishna Pattabhi Jois, for many years and he is the world’s most advanced Ashtanga Yoga practitioner.

CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Primary Series is open to all levels.  
Intermediate Series is open to students who have a regular practice of Intermediate Series up to and including Ekapada Sirsasana. 
Yoga mats are not available at the venue, please bring your own yoga mat + cotton or microfiber mat + 1 practice towel.
PLEASE NOTE: Sharath’s concern is that every practitioner is working at a level that is beneficial for them. If SharathJi finds that a student is not working safely in the Intermediate classes, he may ask them to revert to the Primary class instead.

CONFERENCE
Following in the footsteps of the tradition in Mysore, SharathJi offers one Conference, where he listens to students’ questions and responds with honesty, compassion and wisdom. Bring your questions into this open forum and hear the answer right from the source of this powerful lineage. The location for the Conference will be announced later. Free for all workshop attendees.
