From next week we would have been conducting virtual classes for an entire year! Life is unpredictable and full of surprises and certainly I do not think any of us expected this to last as long as it has.
Ashtanga Yoga South Bay is temporarily suspending all classes with immediate effect.
LYFE is closing from tomorrow as well, so although I had already come to this difficult decision, we now have no choice.
I am taking the novel coronavirus outbreak seriously, not out of fear, but from looking at the hard facts and science. It would be irresponsible for me to ignore it as it is my duty to protect our community. Having spoken to students last week, I know that many of you are concerned.
Do not miss this rare opportunity to study with one of the most respected senior Ashtanga teachers in the world. Noah will lead a primary series class and give a 30 minute talk about the tradition of Ashtanga Yoga.
Thank you to all of you for your dedication and continued practice, especially to those of you who were in class today.
Away from Friday September 20th to Friday October 4th
I will be traveling for two weeks from next Friday, visiting my parents in South Africa. Mitsy Kuncolinekar will be covering for me.

As part of the series of Intro to Ashtanga Yoga Philosophy, I will be teaching an introduction to the Bhagavad Gita.
I am delighted to welcome Samantha Lucas to AYSB on Sunday March 31st at 1.00pm.Samantha, an Ashtangini and amputee, will tell her story of survival after losing her leg in a traumatic motor vehicle accident. The Ashtanga practice carried her through the ordeal and saved her life.
Ashtanga Yoga South Bay will be closed on Christmas Day, but will otherwise remain open throughout the holidays. That said, please note that we are observing the full moon this Sunday, December 23rd.
It is important for practitioners of Ashtanga Yoga to have an understanding of the philosophical principles that underpin the practice. For this yoga to work, one needs to be applying and practicing the yamas and niyamas in one’s daily life, for a start.
This stepping onto our mat every day to practice is a serious endeavor. We should not take it lightly. The task is an important one: to transform ourselves. Yoga is a path towards self-realization.
