Bio Arne:

 

Arne discovered Ashtanga Yoga in 2003. Five years later, he travelled to Mysore, India to practice and pay his respects to Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. Since then, he has gone back yearly to Mysore for further studies with R. Sharath Jois and Saraswathi Jois, the grandson and daughter of Guruji. Arne is now learning Advanced A series under their direct guidance.

 

In 2010, Arne received the blessings of the Jois family and was authorized to teach both the Primary and the full Intermediate Series. Being one of the select few to receive this privilege, Arne likes to teach and help his students develop a Self-Practice. It is his firm belief that Self-Practice is a great beginning to help each individual on their journey towards the knowledge of oneself.

 

Arne has developed Mysore programs, and teaches regularly in South East Asia, in places such as The Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam.

Whenever is possible he does the same back in his home town, when he visits his family in Mexico City.

Manju P. Jois, Ashtanga Yoga guru of Mysore, South India, is the oldest son of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, recognized worldwide as the foremost authority on Ashtanga Yoga.  Manju Jois  began his own personal yoga practice at the age of 7 with his father as his Guru and began teaching at the age of 15. He has taught continuously throughout the world for the last 45 years.

 

Manju is dedicated to his mission of teaching the ancient tradition of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, for a total mind-body-spirit unification with Self and God. 

 

Manju and his father, Shri Pattabhi Jois, brought

 

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga to America in 1975 and Manju has traveled

 

worldwide teaching this tradition as taught to Pattabhi Jois by his

 

legendary teacher T Krishnamacharya.

 

Manju will introduce the components of the Ashtanga Primary Series (Yoga Chikitsa/Yoga Healing) as developed by his father, including the asanas (postures), the Nadi Shodhana Pranayamas (breathing) and the Shanti Mantras (Vedic peace chants). Manju will also introduce the traditional Vinyasa Count and teach correct Sanskrit pronunciation of the asanas and Opening and Closing Chants.
