See Krishnamacharya’s Shala

With Guruji’s World Tour 2006 just behind us, I thought it would be nice to take a moment to reflect on where it all started: Krishnamacharya’s shala in Mysore, India.

Russell, an Ashtangi living and practicing in Mysore, wrote about his visit to Krishnamacharya’s shala in his blog, mysore musings:

Despite the pigeon droppings on the floor, to stand in the very space where SKPJ learned Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga was an experience that was awe-inspiring and hard to describe. But I will try soon.


Walking into the building, and onto the very floor where yoga titans Jois and Iyengar were taught by the most influential hatha yoga teacher in the world, I got goose bumps. History was seeping out from everywhere.

Thank you to Alan Little, certainly one of the most well-known and prolific Ashtanga bloggers out there, for unearthing this photo.
