About Ashtanga Yoga Vancouver

At Ashtanga Yoga Vancouver we are grateful for the inspiration and timeless teachings of Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois. From a powerful lineage, ashtanga yoga, when practiced regularly, inquisitively, and with devotion, is a powerful seed that can transform both our individual experiences and the lives of others. The practice of yoga teaches us to transcend patterns that no longer serve us so we can see ourselves as we are. When we elevate ourselves, we can then elevate others.

Core Values

HONOUR LINEAGE: At Ashtanga Yoga Vancouver, we are inspired by our teacher Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, his daughter, R. Saraswathi, and his grandson R. Sharath Jois. Our teachings reflect our study with direct descendants of the ashtanga yoga tradition.

HEAL OUR COMMUNITY: At Ashtanga Yoga Vancouver, we honour the healer, Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois and his great teachings by growing Ashtanga Yoga Vancouver into a thriving community of people who are planting seeds for their own personal transformation and healing. This transformation can then inspire and increase the understanding of yoga in the world. We wish to plant seeds of yoga and healing for at least 108,000 people.

“MEET” THE STUDENT: Just like Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois, ourteachers seek to “meet” each student as an individual and embark on a journey with them deeper into the practitioner’s self and personal needs.

SHARE KNOWLEDGE: We are constantly sharing knowledge together so we are inspired and able to pass this insight on to others and plant seeds for transformation.

Core Purpose

We are yoga healers creating community – We are inspired by Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois, “Take practice and All is coming.”
