What did Kristen learn in Thailand?
Ashtanga Yoga, also called “8 limb yoga”, is a system derived from an ancient yoga text known as the Yoga Korunta, it was developed and gifted to the world in modern times by Pattabhi Jois who is widely acknowledged as this generation’s master of Ashtanga yoga. Pattabhi Jois lived 1915-2009 passing down his method to those students who travelled to Mysore India to learn from him at his school, “The Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute”.
Although the school remains in Mysore with his son, only a small handful of students were given direct permission by Jois to teach others Ashtanga Yoga. For this reason, it is very special to learn directly from one of Pattabhi’s personal students.
