Experience the healing power of the Ashtanga Yoga practice. This Ashtanga Yoga Primary series is intended for those looking to experience the magic of Ashtanga. Previous Ashtanga or yoga experience is not required. Classes are filled with posture breakdowns, alignment cues, and variations to modify poses that may be new or currently inaccessible.
Following the traditional Ashtanga method, the nine classes in this series are designed to build upon each other over time. All students begin with the first 15-minute class and over time, and only when this class is mastered, are the following classes added one at a time to eventually build an hour-long practice.
In 1997, Deepika’s life was forever changed by a near-death rock climbing accident. Doctors told her she would never walk again. Deepika sought alternative approaches and methods of physical and emotional healing including meditation, pranayama, and yoga. She began her yoga journey with Sivananda Yoga, which eventually led her to Ashtanga Yoga and her future guru, K. Pattabhi Jois in 2002.
Since that time, Deepika has traveled around the world studying with various masters such as Richard Freeman, Dena Kingsberg, Prem Carlisi, Lino Miele, and Rolf Naujokat. She is currently learning Ashtanga’s Advanced A Series with Sharath Jois, who is the Director of the Ashtanga Yoga Institute and grandson to late K. Pattabhi Jois.
Deepika lives in Mumbai, India where she teaches regularly. She also travels the world with her husband, Mark Robberds, spreading the magic of Ashtanga to the world.
