Alternatively, beginning yoga students looking for an introduction to the Ashtanga Yoga style or advanced students looking to upgrade their current skill level can choose the comprehensive four-week beginner course, where skilled instructors acquaint beginning students with the Ashtanga yoga form. Seasoned yogis teach the history of Ashtanga and help students build familiarity with its practices, including sun salutations, standing postures, and breathing techniques. Over the first two weeks, students choose one of four class times—6:30 a.m., 8:30 a.m., 9:30 a.m., and 5:30 p.m.—to attend as many times as they'd like Monday–Thursday. After that, students are free to take as many beginner classes as they'd like at any time during the second two weeks, and they can also attend the weekend mysore classes.

The Yoga Shala

Krista Shirley has spent years traveling the world with an open mind and open heart, learning to infuse her own Ashtanga yoga practice with the global perspective she gleaned in Thailand, Scotland, and India. Now that she’s home, Shirley continues to expand her practice each year by embarking on annual retreats to Mysore, India, where she was authorized to teach by the prestigious Krishna Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute.

Her dedication to preserving the authenticity of Ashtanga is apparent in the thoughtfully constructed classes and workshops at The Yoga Shala. Shirley eschews the gym-like trappings of trendy yoga studios, preferring to establish a school that incorporates yoga's physical and mental benefits into her students' everyday lives. Krista's commitment to education does not stop with her students, however, as her instructors accompany her every year to India to help deepen their mastery of traditional Ashtanga practices.

Within the 2,100-square-foot studio, instructors teach Ashtanga yoga in the traditional Mysore way. This method allows teachers to work individually with their students while guiding groups through each posture. The studio also holds progressive beginners’ classes and Ashtanga flow classes that apply the Vinyasa principles of breath expansion and drishti, which is a focused gaze that develops concentrated intention.
