Ashtanga Yoga

The Ashtanga system, which is in the Hatha yoga tradition, was passed down by Sri T. Krishnamacharya to his student, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois.  Sri K Pattabhi Jois taught yoga with his family in Mysore, India and around the world for over 70 years.  It is now practiced by thousands of people around the world.  

Traditionally in Ashtanga, there are three main sequences of postures:  Primary (Yoga Chikitsā), Intermediate (Nāḍī Śodhana), and Advanced Series (Sthira Bhāga).

Method of practice

Students practice a sequence of poses linked with Vinyasa (methods of getting in and out of each pose) using Ujjayi Pranayama (deep rhythmic breathing), Bandha (muscular and energetic locks), and Drishti (meditative gaze points).

 Benefits

When practiced correctly, Ashtanga yoga builds intense heat that helps in stretching and detoxifying the body.  Consistent yoga practice will yield the benefits of calmness, lightness and extra energy.

 

Mysore style

Students practice at their own pace and can arrive and leave at any time during class hours.  

New students will be guided individually by Greg starting with a small amount of practice and building up over time as the body becomes stronger and more flexible.

Greg Tebb discovered Ashtanga yoga in 1986 at the age of 18 in Australia.  Greg has studied extensively with the Jois family.  He studied with K. Pattabhi Jois in India and New York.  Over the past 17 years, he has been fortunate to study and work with Manju Jois, his teacher and mentor, and often serves as a teaching assistant in Manju's workshops.  

Greg has Manju Jois' blessing to teach into the Advanced Series of Ashtanga yoga.

 He has authored two training manuals wth Manju Jois: Ashtanga Yoga: Yoga Chikitsa & Nadi Shodhana          Yogasana Chikitsa Bhaga: Yoga Therapy

Prior to teaching yoga, Greg was a professional dancer in Australia and studied at Queensland Institute of Technology(BA/ADA Dance).

In addition to yoga, Greg continues to study anatomy, physiology, and Sanskrit. 

Greg and his wife, Kathi, live in NJ with their son, Josh.
