I started practicing Ashtanga in 2006 when I first visited the then AYRI Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute in Mysore India.
I practiced there for 11 and a half months. My first 6 months was spent practicing with Saraswathi Rangaswami Jois , then practicing with Krisna Pattabhi Jois and Sharath Jois for the rest of my first visit.
I have returned to the same institute a few times to practice with Sharath Jois ,which is now called the KPJAYI Krisna Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute.
To date I have spent 2 - 3 years practicing in Mysore .
On my last visit I had the honour of assisting my teacher Sarath Jois at the KPJAYI
