About Us

We are a Yoga studio dedicated to teaching Ashtanga in a traditional way, sharing all the knowledge we have learnt directly form Paramguru Sharath Jois, and certified and authorized teachers by Sharath Yoga Center.


We opened our doors in October 2018 in Colonia Roma, Mexico city to offer classes to everyone interested in learning and deepening their practice of Ashtanga Yoga, no matter the age, sex, or physical abilities.


We want to share our passion for this practice observing and caring for each student in their individual process, according to their strengths and limitations.
