Ashtanga Mysore Style

Mysore Style self-practice is the traditional, lineage based method of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga as developed by guru Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, of Mysore, South India. It is a unique and powerful way of developing a yoga practice where individual growth is valued and honoured and all students from beginners to advanced practitioners learn side by side. A qualified teacher will guide students in their practice by introducing them to sun salutations, and then building on that foundation. Postures are taught sequentially, drawing from the Ashtanga set sequences, adding on postures over time. Practice is short initially and grows in duration over time. This approach allows for individual growth where the aptitude of the student determines the rate and need for development, thereby laying a strong foundation that will be of great benefit to any serious student of Yoga. As with all undertakings, commitment often determines progress. Everyone, especially beginners, are most welcome. We look forward to meeting you in the shala.

Miriam Stieger
Miriam Stieger

As a student of both psychology and yoga, Miriam is fascinated by the interplay of body and mind and of conscious and unconscious aspects of awareness. Through Yoga and Meditation, she finds spaces leading to the gift of insight, the healing of mental wounds and the refinement of conscious perception. 
She has learned the Ashtanga Practice from her primary teachers Michael Hamilton and Eddie Stern. Their firm, yet very gentle way of being continues to inspire her. For Miriam, Yoga means to reunite oppositions and to be more present with the unfolding of inner experience. She teaches in German and English.

Simona Gabrieli
Simona Gabrieli

Yoga goes far beyond the practice of asana. Simona is deeply fascinated by the infinity of yoga. In each yoga class, we are confronted with ourselves, our thought patterns and the way we act and react. This gives us the opportunity to come closer to our true selves. Discovering and connecting with this true self, playing with our own limitations and leaving the comfort zone, is a constant challenge.
For Simona, Yoga is a source of strength, calmness, clarity and freedom. Staying open, accepting the now, surrendering and learning to let go are processes that nourish us from within.
Simona has been practicing yoga since 2007. In 2011, she attended the 200-hour (YA) Teacher Training with Patricia Thielemann in Berlin. Since 2012, she has been practicing with her teacher Michael Hamilton and completed his Advanced Teacher Training in spring 2016. Currently, Simona is assisting in his Ashtanga Mysore Style Programme at AIRYOGA Zurich.
She teaches in German and English.
