Taught by expert teachers in their specialized field

Astanga Yoga Mysore Intensive

With Lino Miele

This workshop has taken place already, please visit our Workshop Page for a more recent offering of workshops and trainings.

We are very honoured to welcome our beloved teacher Lino Miele back in Amsterdam!


Lino has been a student of Sri K P Jois since the 80's and received formal certification to teach in 1994. During his many visits to Mysore, Lino investigated thoroughly the 'Vinaysa system' under Pattabhi Jois' guidance , ending with the publication of the 'Astanga Yoga Book', which is still today the most complete and detailed books available on the traditional vinyasa system.


Working with the exact number of vinyasa for each asana requires a high level of practice. Gradually one will be able to utilize the control of breath and bandhas to harness the energy (prana) and flow with synchronicity from asana to asana.  – Lino Miele


This year Lino will come together with Desiree, and they will offer each day an early morning Mysore class. Through their precise adjustments and verbal cues, you will gain a physical and embodied understanding of each and every asana. On Saturday there will also be an opportunity to learn about adjustments in 'The Art of Touch' workshop, where Lino shares more about his unique view on the practice and the Astanga method.

The workshop ends on Sunday with a closing session where space is given to Q&A's and you will be guided through a simple but effective pranayama practice. Above all – expect loads of laughter!

Lino has now been touring and teaching for over two decades. He is loved, respected and renowned for his uncompromising way of passing on the traditional Astanga yoga method. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to meet our Maestro!
