Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga.

Ashtanga Yoga is an ancient system of Yoga that was taught by Vamana Rishi in the Yoga Korunta. This text was imparted to Sri T. Krishnamacharya in the early 1900’s by his Guru Rama Mohan Brahmachari, and was later passed down to Pattabhi Jois during the duration of his studies with Krishnamacharya, beginning in 1927.
Shri. Pattabhi Jois spread his knowledge world-wide, his method of teaching was popularly called as “Mysore – style Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga”. This traditional style of teaching was passed down to his grand-son Shri. R. Sharath Jois and was accepted as Paramaguru by all the Practitioners of Mysore-style Ashtanga Yoga around the world. This traditional practice strictly follows the guru-shishya tradition and the students are authorized only after rigorous practice for several years.
