Yoga method is universal, it is not mine or yours. That method is
perfect, it is complete. Ashtanga Yoga is yama, niyama, asana,
pranayama, pratyahara, dharana, dhyana, samadhi - these are the eight
steps which make up Ashtanga Yoga method. But first you take asana:
"āsanaṃ prāṇasaṃrodhaś pratyāhāraś ca dhāraṇām, dhyānaṃ samādhir etāni
ṣaḍaṅgāni prakirtita" (śandilya) upanisads are telling: first you start asana, asanas are your foundation.
- Sri K. Pattabhi Jois Guruji 1915 - 2009
The Mysore style of Yoga asana practice is the Traditional Method in
the Ashtanga Yoga system as taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore,
India. We are grateful and honored to have the privilege to study and
teach this method. We dedicate our teaching to this lineage.
