The Yoga Workshop was founded in 1987 by Richard Freeman and Mary Taylor for the advancement of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. As one of the oldest Ashtanga studios in the United States, the Yoga Workshop is renowned 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.

Ashtanga Vinyasa is a method of opening ourselves to the fullness of sensory experience. The signature of the method is the graceful integration of posture, breath and gaze. When these elements are aligned, the experience of the body opens up, revealing endless patterns of sensation. The practice is to be present with these patterns, allowing them to unfold in the open expanse of our awareness. Through this practice, we give ourselves space, and we allow our minds to breath. Our isolating delusions gradually dissolve into a balanced flow of consciousness.
