Yoga in Mysore, It's Madness!

My thoughts about yoga in Mysore? It's madness! I came to Mysore to practice Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga but the funny thing is that after all the time that I've spent in India learning about yoga this was the first time that I felt that I wasn't doing yoga anymore, yet I was practicing Ashtanga Yoga six days a week for two and a half hours.

The Best Ashtanga Yoga Teachers in Mysore, India

Best Ashtanga Yoga Teachers in Mysore

(Updated 2019) Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga (better known as Ashtanga Yoga) is an intense and physically demanding method of hatha yoga that was popularized by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois of Mysore, India. For this reason most people who come to practice with an ashtanga yoga teacher in Mysore go to the Sri K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute (KPJAYI), also known as "the main shala", and practice with R. Sharath Jois, the grandson of Pattabhi Jois.

Ashtanga Yoga Teacher in Mysore Vijay Kumar

"Although Vijay is very young he already has an extensive teaching experience. He is an amazing ashtanga yoga teacher and a beautiful soul," my friend Dario wrote me on Facebook. With only 26 years Vijay Kumar is probably one of the youngest ashtanga yoga teachers in Mysore yet he continues to become more and more popular among western students.
