Many of my students near the end of their TTC with the same question:  what should we do next?  And where to study in India?  After traveling and roving through a significant portion of India, I have found one particularly special place.  I'd like to share some highlights for folks interested in visiting a small city- abundantly rich in so many facets.  It is a place that, largely thanks to Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, his teachers and his students, has been a crucial link, making the teachings available to the western mind.   

ASANA: I highly recommend Sthalam 8 for Mysore Practice with Ajay Kumar and Shiva Prakash Jetty. Check their website for the latest:

PRANAYAMA:  I recommend to study with BNS Iyengar, a direct student of Sri Krishnamacarya himself.

PATANJALI YOGA SUTRAS AND SANSKRIT:  I recommend Dr. MA Jayashree and Professor Narsimha.   Here you can study and chant Patanjali's Yoga Sutra's.  Dr. Jayashree holds a very high level of education and has a long-standing relationship to the Sutras and is a classical Karnatic singer.  She teaches via the Sruti Paramparam method: call and response and Narasimha gives extremely rich insight into the philosophy.  It is a valuable treasure to be in their presence.












ANATOMY: I recommend Noah McKenna, he often teaches week-long workshops in Gokulum.
