Ashtanga Articles from A to Z

I've just added another "pages" button at the top of the blog: Ashtanga Articles.

Here's the description:

Since 1998, I've written scores of articles for Yoga Chicago magazine about my trips to Mysore, New York and Florida to study with Pattabhi Jois, as well as pieces about my studies with a who's-who of senior ashtanga teachers, including:

Manju Jois
Lino Miele
Dena Kingsberg
Tim Miller
Annie Grover Pace
Eddie Stern
David Swenson
Richard Freeman
David Williams
Chuck Miller and Maty Ezraty
and so on.

These stories provide an invaluable wealth of knowledge about the practice of ashtanga vinyasa yoga.

Find a directory of my articles here. (To fine-tune your search, use the super-efficient engine at the top of the page).


  1. Thanks for the info! Great picture of you and Pattabhi. You look pretty in your Sari.

  2. You're very kind. Thank you!

    Got all excited when I saw you have written an article about Karen Haberman, but could not find it. Tried to nuance my google search, but no luck. Is there a direct link?

    And btw do you know what Karen is doing these days? Still around and teaching?

  4. You are so right; she's not there.

    Hers was my first workshop, and it was *intense*, to say the least. Apparently I wrote about it before YC went online; I have a paper copy her somewhere. Anyway, thank you for catching this and sorry for any confusion!

    I don't know what she's up to these days. Does anyone else know? She was one of the most advanced ashtanga practitioners - female or otherwise - back in the late 1990s.

  5. I love to see you. And you look gorgeous in your saris....:)

  6. Thank you, Ursula ! I love Guruji's big smile.
