Traditional Astanga Yoga

With Saraswathi Jois

Saraswathi Jois will travel to Europe again in the spring to teach in a few places. We are very honored to have her stopping in Amsterdam for the Easter week and to teach a 5-days program at Delight Yoga.


Every year a large number of teachers and students from everywhere in the world, travel to Mysore in India to study astanga yoga with Sharat and Saraswathi, and to experience this incredible practice at the source – the Krishna Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute. We are now truly delighted to offer this unique opportunity to practice astanga yoga – as taught by Sri K P Jois – with her daughter Saraswathi during her first visit to the Netherlands.


The workshop will be a 5 days program consisting of daily led classes (full primary series) as well as pranayama and chanting sessions. Saraswathi will also offer the participants an opportunity to participate in an open discussion, in Mysore often referred to as a Talk or Conference, in which students can ask questions in an open forum. 


Dates: 14-18 April 2017 (Friday to Tuesday Easter Week)
Times: 7:00-9:00 am led class each day, 10:00-12:00 am special Talk on Saturday 15 April 2017
Price: €300 for the whole program

If space allows single session drop in classes (either led class or talk) might be possible. Please check closer to date, email info@delightyoga.nl


This workshop is open to students of all levels, however some familiarity with the Astanga Yoga system is highly recommended. Everyone is welcome for the special talk on Saturday morning.


As part of the 2017 European Tour, Saraswathi will be teaching in the following locations:

  • Amsterdam 14-18 April 2017 (delightyoga.com)
  • Freiburg 19-23 April 2017 (ashtanga-yoga-freiburg.de)
  • Madrid 26-30 April 2017 (ashtanga-yoga-alcobendas.es)


For international students coming from abroad: you will not be able to register via the website, as you can only complete the payment if you have a Dutch bank account. Please register via email by sending your complete details and stating clearly the name of the workshop and which days you’d like to attend to info@delightyoga.nl. You will then receive a request to make the payment via bank transfer. Your place is reserved when payment is complete. We would also recommend you to book accommodation in Amsterdam early, as the Easter holidays attract a lot of international visitors to the city.

About Saraswathi Jois

Born in 1941 to Savitramma and yoga master, K. Pattabhi Jois, Saraswathi played with yoga postures at an early age. At 10 she began her formal study of ashtanga yoga under the guidance of her father, and eventually became the first woman admitted to the Sanskrit College in Mysore, where she studied Sanskrit works and yoga.
