Guruji in Florida in March 2008

The official Ashtanga website recently posted the following message from Guruji:

My beloved students,

For the last 30 years I have been visiting the United Stats to spread my teachings. With great pleasure, I am proud to announce the opening of my new yoga center in Florida.

I would like to invite each and every one of you to join myself, my daughter Saraswathi and my grandson Sharath for the grand opening party on March 14th, followed by a 2-week workshop. This will be our only visit to the United States in 2008. I look forward to seeing you there!

Love, Guruji

The dates are March 15 to 27 2008.

It will cost $300 for the first week and $200 for the second week. There is a link to Paypal for payment online too.


Here are the posts we wrote about the new Florida shala on Islamorada earlier this year:

    Looks like the page was taken down. It’s also broken from within the site…

    Does anyone know of a flat for rent in Mysore for the month of February 2008, would appreciate any help. Namaste

    The person to contact is Shiva, who lives about two doors down from the Shala and his niche is linking up yoga students with reasonably priced lodgings. (He found me a great place for a month for 6,000 rupees – about USD$150.00) His contacts:

    Phone: 0821-4288936
    Local Cell: 98 44 226 082

    Also, if you do a google search for “studying yoga in Mysore”, the yoga holidays website link has a lot of great tips, although the Kevin Kimple Guesthouse is called something else now and they’re w-a-a-y too expensive anyway. I would go to Tina’s (the breakfast lady) or Anu’s (the lunch and dinner lady) and stay there first for a night or a weekend, until Shiva finds you something. Oh! Here’s the link!

    Hope you have a great time. It’s absolutely WONDERful to be there and study for a month. If you can, take some more time. A month was too short.

    I am wondering where one would stay for this workshop. Are there opportunities for camping or more affordable places to stay in the Islamorada area?

    There is a campground located on Long Key which is about 20 miles south of the shala. All of the campsites are right on the ocean and have beautiful sunrise views. Hope this helps.

    For real? I heard that it was still on, but that Guruji was not going to be there, however Sharath and Saraswathi were.

    Okay, I just called the company which confirmed our registration, and they said that the second week was cancelled, but that first week was still on, with Sharath and Saraswathi in attendance.
