Emre, a working guitarist, composer & teacher for more than 25 years first got interested in Yoga, through Vinyasa and Pilates classes. Soon he felt that the path of Ashtanga yoga was the one for him and the Ashtanga system became an indispensable part of his daily life. He attended workshops with David and Douglas Swenson and Michael Hamilton which led him to go and study Primary, Intermediate & Advanced A Series in Mysore, India with Sheshadri & Ajay Kumar, as well as Hatha Yoga & Pranayama classes with Ramesh Kumar.
Emre is committed to a daily individual practice. Both the physical and spiritual dimensions of yoga have become an integral part of his life. He turns back to Mysore whenever he finds time to deepen his practice and knowledge about the Ashtanga Yoga & Pranayama system.
