Mysore Style Ashtanga Yoga
Sharmila was first introduced to Ashtanga yoga by Shri K. Pattabhi Jois and R. Sharath Jois when she visited Mysore in 1997. She is one of few worldwide to be Certified by KPJAYI to teach the Ashtanga yoga system and is the co author of Yoga Sadhana for Mothers. Believing in the importance of Seva as part of spiritual practice, Sharmila has also taught yoga therapy workshops. This Fall, Sharmila opened her shala in Goa, India. Sharmila continues to make regular pilgrimages to study in Mysore cherishing her time to be a student and to go deeper into the ocean that is yoga. She most enjoys sharing the practice in the way it was imparted to her over the years within a healing transformative environment.
