A Warm Welcome from John
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is a very dynamic, challenging, sequential asana based practice of yoga that combines the principles of Patanjali’s ashto-anga eight limbs and T Krishnamacharya and K Pattabhi Jois’s development of vinyasa – Mind Breath Movement Synchronicity, to arrive in a state of yoga – in the moment of ‘NOW’ transcended of the conditioned patterns of thought, speech and action. What is shared here is a practice, a discipline that if practiced daily, gives the student the skills to reclaim their own authority and realise how extraOrdinary they and the rest of the world really is. John Scott Yoga is not an “Authority of Yoga” but rather JSY is a community of practitioners who are exemplars of the practice, it’s challenges and benefits. The validity of their sharing is by keeping the yoga alive and contemporary through the continuation and exploration into the techniques and methods of yoga.
