I stumbled across the Ashtanga practice in 2000 and was hooked. My "day job" has led to occassional long stints in London where I was able to have steady practice under the guidance of Hamish Hendry at Astanga Yoga London. In 2006, I made the first trip of several 3 month trips to Mysore, India to study at the AYRI (now KPJAYI ) and in 2014 Shri R. Sharath Jois entrusted me with Level 2 Authorisation to share the Full Primary Series and Full Intermediate Series.
