R Sharath Jois. Yogashala Stockholm

Guest teacher R. Sharath Jois

R. Sharath Jois is a teacher, practitioner and lineage holder (paramaguru) of Ashtanga Yoga, in the tradition of K. Pattabhi Jois. Sharath will come back to us in Stockholm July 3 – 8 2019.

R. Sharath Jois is the director of the Shri K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute (KPJAYI) in Mysore, India. He is an author, the subject of several documentaries, and is known for his expertise in Ashtanga yoga. As a teacher, Jois reinforces the idea that practising Ashtanga yoga is a process and that asanas are simply one aspect of the practice, preparing individuals to incorporate the other limbs into their lives. There are many layers to the practice and although it may appear as a linear practice, marked by progression based on the addition of new asanas, it is in fact, much more nuanced. This is precisely why students are encouraged to focus on the physical practice because the experiential aspects of the practice are where the true learning occurs, not simply by reading about yoga theory; the practice is the foundation for the practical application of yoga theory. He studied under his grandfather for twenty years.

6 morning classes and 1 conference

Everyone who are familiar with part of or the full primary series is welcome to the workshop in Sjöstadshallen, Skeppsmäklargatan 1. We start July 3 at 6:30 am with a led primary class for all participants.

Sharath will every morning from Wednesday to Monday teach led primary 6:30 am and in his calm and steady rhythm count us through all vinyasa and asana. You are very welcome even if you have not completed the primary series yet.

Participating on the led intermediate classes Friday, Saturday and Sunday 8.00 am requires that you have been taught at least till Eka Pada Sirsasana by a KPJAYI authorized or certified teacher, see the list. Sharath requests the right to stop anyone not performing an asana sufficiently. You are required to participate all 3 days – no drop-ins. Contact Lisa Lalér at,  if you have questions about the practice.

Terms and conditions

Registration is binding and there are no refunds.
 If something happens so you can’t make it to the workshop, you can try to sell your spot thru one of the ashtangayoga forums on social media. Please do contact us if you find someone to take your spot and send us the contact information to the new participant.

Canceled workshops and refunds

A purchased place for a workshop will be refunded only in case of a cancelled workshop.

A workshop is cancelled if it simply can not be completed. Changes in dates, venue for the workshop or a partially completed workshop are thus not a suspended workshop, and the money is usually not refunded.

Regarding travel, hotel or other expenses incurred in connection with a suspended or moved workshop

Yogashala Stockholm is not responsible for any lost travel, hotel or other expenses incurred in connection with a changed / cancelled workshop.

If these circumstances arise, it is your responsibility to make sure that the event is performed as planned before you travel. We do our utmost to inform you about cancelled events and / or date changes. However, situations where we can not contact all customers may arise. We therefore recommend that you check that the workshop is confirmed and will take place before you travel.

Sharath will  also give workshops in London and Copenhagen.
