About Ashtanga Yoga Worldwide

Greetings Ashtanga Yoga Worldwide community.  This community is all about you, your growth, and using the tools of Yoga to meet your potential.  

Ashtanga Yoga Worldwide comes from Greg’s experience traveling around the world studying, practicing, and teaching yoga. He took many extended trips to India learning  yoga in its homeland.  Teaching yoga comes from a deep commitment to practice over a long period of time.  We maintain the highest standards for ourselves and all of the  teachers at AYW.  We truly live what we teach so that we can best serve you.

Part of the teaching style, particularly in the mysore method includes the use of verbal cues, hands on assists, and visual demonstration to help you find the best way for you to practice the method.  We consider it our honor to pass this method to you, and encourage your participation in the process.  Please give your teacher feedback about your progress and ask questions if there is anything that you don’t understand.  You are always welcome to observe a class before joining to see if this method is for you.

We cultivate our connections to the global Ashtanga community by keeping a schedule of workshops at a network of yoga shalas around the world.  We support emerging communities and build strong relationships by returning over and over.  We also continually seek the advice of our peers and continuing education as we are students as well as teachers.

Our logo is a bit of sacred geometry.  The bindu in the center represents the divine creation, in space and time.  The triangles point up and down to represent the process of manifestation and transcendence.  The circle represents the eternal unity that supports all of creation.  It inspires each of us to focus on both our individual growth and our membership in a universal, collective.
