THIS IS MORE THAN JUST A CONFERENCE

IT’S A CONVERSATION BETWEEN CULTURES AS TOP SCHOLARS TEACH THE WORLD DEEP YOGA PHILOSOPHY

No one knows the history and philosophy of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga better than the Sanskrit community of Mysore!

From the origin of the Ashtanga sequences that have had a huge impact on yoga world wide, to the philosophical foundations of this global practice, all questions can be answered.

Senior Sanskrit scholars from the Maharaja's Sanskrit College and around Mysore are collaborating to create a unique experience for the international yoga community.  This retreat will provide an authentic, authoritative, behind the scenes look into the fabric of yoga culture in Mysore. The scholars of Mysore are not selling a brand of yoga or anything else. They simply share their views about what yoga means to them, and what foreign people can do to move further into yoga practice, especially in our attitude and behavior. This is an opportunity for us to mature our yoga practice beyond simply practicing postures.

MYSORE HOLDS MANY SECRETS! EXPERIENCE THE RICHNESS AND BEAUTY OF MYSORE'S YOGA COMMUNITY FIRST HAND.

CONNECT WITH THE WISDOM OF MYSORE

In today's yoga world many foreign yoga practitioners would like to feel connected with an ancient tradition through Yoga. We believe that learning the philosophy of yoga directly from the elders of Mysore can help us come closer to this tradition.

The Yoga of Mysore has been debated about for decades. What is traditional? What isn't?

How can we participate in this tradition or Parampara?

The compassion, sincerity, academic brilliance, and deep reverence for yoga and all spiritual practice among the scholars of Mysore will leave you stunned. 

THE SCHOLARS OF MYSORE HAVE VAST KNOWLEDGE OF ALL PHILOSOPHY BOTH EASTERN AND WESTERN. THEIR MESSAGES CAN TRULY INSPIRE US AND EVOLVE OUR UNDERSTANDING OF THE YOGA WE LOVE TO PRACTICE.
