Mysore in south India is the home of ashtanga yoga. Hundreds of students travel to Mysore each year to study with Sharath Jois, the current lineage holder (paramaguru) of ashtanga yoga, and the director at the KPJAYI (previously known as the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute).
Devoting time to study at KPJAYI is not always possible for everyone – there are many dedicated practitioners who have not yet been. For those who do make annual trips, it often becomes a treasured and essential part of their yoga journey.
