Experiencing and embodying the practices within yourself is the best way to be able to guide and teach others with integrity. This two-week course for dedicated Mysore practitioners shows you how to fully integrate practices of Ashtanga Mysore Yoga.

Note: Please note that this is NOT a teacher certification course. Only R. Sharath of the KPJ Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, India, can grant Authorization and Certification to teach Ashtanga Yoga.

We are the First Authorised Ashtanga teachers in Rishikesh by Sharath Jois. We offer traditional intensive ashtanga vinyasa yoga course at "Ashtanga Yoga Shala Rishikesh" (AYSRishikesh).

Two week is all about learning the proper technique to practice Ashtanga’s Primary Series. Each day will be based around morning mysore-style or led practice with Sachin & Liubov.

AYS Offers the ideal program for beginners and for experienced practitioners either one wish to deepen the practice or to begin the Ashtanga journey. In the course, practitioners will discover a lot of new information and develop skills to improve self-practice and teaching as well.

What will you Learn?

  • We follow Ashtanga Vinyasa Prampara which is taught by Guruji Shri K. Pattabhi Jois and his grandson Sharath Jois. During the course, we study the main aspects and principals of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga and implement it into practice and teachings.
  • During the course we help you to build a solid practice based on vinyasa system, applying bandhas, drishti and breath (pranayama). We go through the entire primary series so that eventually practice can become smooth, joyful & meditative.
  • We help you to go through yogic anatomy and physiology of human body & Mind. As the primary series is called yoga chikitsa (yoga therapy) so we explain the therapeutic benefits of entire primary series postures.
  • To understand the spiritual side of ashtanga vinyasa practice Students are also introduced to yoga philosophy and main ancient yoga texts as it gives a strong theoretical foundation of the practice.
  • Yoga practice should not be on mat only but the whole day and whole time in our life. We teach the yoga philosophy, explaining the history of yoga the 8 limbs of yoga and sharing experiences of life and giving some tips to make your life balanced in the contemporary world.
  • It is also very important to know your own geometrical physics of body. Balancing at certain angles and balancing the body, extending and twisting body to a certain level and balancing. so we will go through the alignment and hands-on adjustment.
