The Yoga Workshop was founded in 1987 by Richard Freeman and Mary Taylor for the advancement of Ashtanga Vinyasa. As one of the oldest Ashtanga studios in the United States, the Yoga Workshop is renown for its evolved approach to the discipline. The teachings are based on what Richard and Mary learned in Mysore, South India from Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, the original exponent of the Ashtanga system. Now under the guidance of Ty and Shayan Landrum, the Yoga Workshop continues to offer the finest instruction in Mysore-style Ashtanga.

An Ashtanga Retreat with Ty Landrum
May 13 - 20
Ashtanga Vinyasa is a mode of contemplation that takes us to the ecstatic edge of embodied experience. The practice moves the breath into long and flowing patterns through which thought and sensation can unfold. As we contemplate these patterns, we are drawn out of ourselves. Our images become transparent and we are exposed to the open radiance of our own awareness. When this experience ripens, there is an overwhelming sense of closeness to the world, for all things seem to shimmer with the same radiant light. And as we feel that light refracting through our bones, we rediscover our bodies as condensations of an immanent love, sustaining all things by grace. Our senses then flood with compassion, the nectar of yoga.
