ASHTANGA VINYASA YOGA

YOGA PRACTICE & PHILOSOPHY

GREGOR MAEHLE began his yogic practices forty years ago. In the mid-1980s he commenced annual travels to India, where he studied with various yogic and tantric masters, traditional Indian sadhus and ascetics. After practicing with BKS Iyengar, he spent fourteen months in Mysore, and in 1997 was authorised to teach Ashtanga Yoga by K. Pattabhi Jois. Since then he has branched out into researching the anatomical alignment of postures and the higher limbs of yoga.

He lived for several years as a recluse, studying Sanskrit and yogic scripture and practicing yogic techniques. Together with his wife, Monica, in 1996 they founded 8 Limbs in Perth, Australia, which they co-directed for 21 years. They now live in a rainforest in the hinterland of Byron Bay where they occasionally conduct Teacher Training Immersions.
