Krista Shirley: Authorized Level 2 teacher in the tradition of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois

 
 

 Krista Shirley is a dedicated student and practitioner of traditional Ashtanga yoga.

She was introduced to this practice over fourteen years ago and immediately embraced it as a daily part of her life be-cause she was magnetically drawn to the healing this practice provides.


For the last eleven years Krista has rolled her mat out each day because it is such an intrinsic part of who she is.

Ashtanga Yoga has given Krista health and wellness, comfort, stability, peace, mindfulness and an outlet to work on herself and help others.

Krista began making yearly, long term, visits to Mysore, India in 2006 to study with the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, Guruji, in order to fully connect to this lineage and embrace and surrender to a teacher that could help facilitate her growth and provide a deep source of inspiration. Since Guruji’s passing in 2009 Krista continues to make the yearly pilgrimage to India to study with Guruji’s grandson R. Sharath Jois who has dedicated his life continuing the work of Guruji, ensuring this deeply rich lineage, this parampara, lives on in the name of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois.

Krista’s dedication to her personal yoga practice and the Ashtanga lineage shine through in her teaching. Her energy is contagious and inspiring because she lives this yoga daily and experiences tremendous fulfillment in helping people find and deepen their growth in this practice. Krista continues her trips to Mysore each year because she believes it is very important all students have a teacher, a guide, to aid and inspire along the path. In 2010 she traveled to Mysore six months pregnant, and in 2012, 2013 and 2015 she took her year old little boy to Mysore with her. She has made ten trips to Mysore, India to continue her own studies and spent over twenty four months of her life studying at the Krishna Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, India.

Krista is a level 2 authorized Ashtanga teacher and founder of The Yoga Shala in Winter Park, Florida where she teaches traditional Ashtanga yoga classes in the Mysore method. Originally from South Carolina, Krista resides in Florida with her son, Kaiden.

Spend several hours with Krista learning how to incorporate pranayama into your life, which benefit our moods, our bodies, and our Yoga practice. This session will help us better understand our breath, which is the most vital process in the entire body, for it is the link to all aspects of our human experience. Pranayama practice helps us to learn how to deepen our control of the breath, which enables the practitioner to control prana (energy). The control of prana through control over breath is Pranayama, and consistent practice will open the door to our ability tocontrol the body, mind, and soul. We will end our session with seated meditation practice, exploring ways to calm and quiet the mind and body. Suitable for all levels. 2 hours.
