Brett Porzio

Brett has been a student and practitioner of Ashtanga yoga since 2000, when he began his studies with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, R. Sharath Jois and Eddie Stern. He has taught Mysore style Ashtanga extensively, and internationally, throughout Europe, Asia, and Australia, and is delighted to return home to Zurich, and AIRYOGA, where he first began teaching in 2007.
For Brett, daily practise signifies a devotional space in which reverence and acknowledgement for creation, and the flow of life’s cycles are engaged and experienced directly. Practise assists us in surrendering and purifying what must be let go of, across every domain of life, whilst preparing a fertile ground upon which to welcome the new. 
Practise and teaching together form a dedicated, daily therapeutic ritual that hold space for healing, restoration and replenishment. Perhaps most satisfyingly, practise pacifies the dualities of embodied existence, granting the direct experience of peace, personal freedom and inner knowing - above and beyond the alternative of modern culture’s insufficient default toward a model of universal truth. Joy, and life’s exhilarating potential abounds when we first give some love, recognition and attention to our inner worlds each day.
Brett continues to study annually with his principal teacher, R. Sharath Jois in Mysore, India. In addition, Brett studies Vedic chanting and ritual with Prof. M.V. Varadarajan of Melkote, Karnataka, and Vipassana meditation with Sayadaw U Vivekanada.
Brett teaches in English.

Ashtanga Mysore Style
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.

Ashtanga Yoga "Half Primary"
Ashtanga Yoga "Half Primary"

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is a flowing, dynamic form of yoga which focuses on building inner heat. The flowing movements lead to an increase in strength, flexibility and energy. Through the synchronization of breath and movement and the repetitive sequence of asanas (yoga postures), the practitioner is able to experience a state of meditation and calm while developing a self practice.

Ashtanga "Half Primary" – Primary Series through Navasana (90 min.)
This class is a guided class of the first half of the primary series of Ashtanga yoga. The pace is somewhat slower than in the full primary. It is suitable for practitioners that would like to spend more time in the postures and learn more detail as more information accompanies the postures by way of verbal adjustments.
