Traditional Astanga Yoga


NB: From April 7th we will open the registration for single sessions drop ins for the led classes and the special talk on Saturday. 


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.
