Andrew began the practice of Ashtanga yoga in 1994 in Adelaide, Australia but it was not until 2001 that he finally made it to meet and study with Guruji, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, and Sharath Jois in Mysore, India. Since then he has spent much cherished time in Mysore studying at KPJAYI and is certified to teach the traditional Ashtanga yoga system. Andrew has also devoted many years to the study of Vedic chanting and the philosophy of the Yoga Sutras, the Bhagavad Gita, and Upanishads etc., while immersing himself deeply in the local culture of Mysore. He currently teaches in California.
Veronique started practicing Ashtanga yoga in 2005 while working in Hong Kong. She became a direct student of R.

Veronique is currently learning the advanced series under the guidance of Sharath and is authorized level 2 by KPJAYI to teach Ashtanga in the tradition of his grandfather, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. She currently teaches a daily morning Mysore program in Osaka.

This was my second visit and I stayed two nights. I didn't miss TV, internet, mobile, meat, traffic jams, newspapers and so on. It's a new experience to learn the sound of silence with soothing sounds of birds chirping and occasionally the wind chimes thrown in. Listen carefully and you can hear the sea in the background.
Dining here will help us realise how much we overeat and after a couple of days the body feels lighter. A minimum of three days is required to realise that humans should slow down and how much better life would be.
