8C2A6429Sharmila 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.

Pricing Changes for 2018

When we first started the evening program, we lowered the prices to try to garner interest. Over the past years the program has grown strong under amazing instructors like Juan Carlos Galan and Maria Whittaker.

In the next two years the evening pricing will move towards matching the morning pricing structure.   We will have a 10% increase starting for January 2018.

For all automatic payment passes, the new pricing will be:
1 month unlimited pass $165
3 month unlimited pass $440

Thanks for supporting Ashtanga Yoga Vancouver.
