Tabata Trejo

KPJAYI Mysore Authorized Level 2

From a very young age, physical activity became part of her life and at the age of 3 she was already doing Olympic gymnastics. The intense practice of extreme sports caused her many injuries and that brought her closer to thai chi and yoga. She practices yoga on a daily base from the age of 18, so for more than half of her life.

Many different teachers in Venezuela and Miami crossed her way. In Mexico she had the privilege of being able to participate in an ashtanga intensive with the first teacher authorized by Pattabhi Jois in Latin America, Olivia Martínez. Also there, her experience was further enriched with the teacher Michael Gannon.

In 2014 she arrived in Barcelona and began to share her yoga experiences in various spaces. At the same time, she finally went to India, where she was able to practice with who become her teacher, Sharath Jois.

She repeated to come back to Mysore every year and she follows Sharathji’s workshops every time he comes to Europe. The practice in India has also allowed her to deepen the studies of philosophy and sutras with the teacher Jayashree, professor of Sanskrit and Hindu philosophy at the University of Mysore.

In 2017 she opened her own shala in Barcelona, where every day ashtanga classes are taught in the traditional style according to the lineage.
In 2019 she finished a master’s degree in physiotherapy and another in sports rehabilitation from the Esneca School; now she is able to apply this knowledge.

Tabata wird von November bis Dezember 2022 bei uns als Lehrer zu Gast sein. Im März 2023 kommt sie wieder!


Miho Reineke

KPJAYI Mysore Authorized Level 2

I have been practicing Ashtanga Yoga consistently since 2011 and was authorised to teach level 2 in 2016. Sharath R. Jois and Devorah Sacks have been my teachers. I have also studied with Hamish Hendry, Dominic Corigliano and Chad Herst. I assisted Devorah in her Shala in San Francisco in 2017 and started my own programme in Berlin, Germany in 2018.
The inherent wisdom of Ashtanga yoga has led me on a transformative journey. Through awareness of the body the mental, emotional and physical bodies find their release guided by patience and trust. The connection to the breath and bandhas leads to the unlocking of blockages. Practicing daily makes me see things as they are which is the first step to healing. I go into the deeper layers of the Self unwinding conditioned mind patterns and emotions. The practice keeps me healthy, happy and strong. The longing for the deeper truth of life has also led me to explore Vipassana meditation in the Goenka tradition and Theravada Buddhism in the Thai Forest tradition.
I bring this love of the practice to my teaching, supporting practitioners to develop their strength and alignment along with the breathing. I adjust as an invitation to move from the inside to avoid injuries.
The Mysore style class is suitable for all levels including absolute beginners. The practitioner is taught one-to-one receiving the necessary attention directed to individual conditions and abilities. At the same time, this happens in a group setting as a space of safety and inspiration. The daily practice allows the time to integrate the teachings, to step out of the daily challenges and experience the bliss of feeling your body in movement and positions.

Miho wird ab Ende September bis November 2022 bei uns als Lehrer zu Gast sein.

Kiril Yordanov

Kiril Yordanov

KPJAYI Mysore Authorized Level 1

Kiril believes in the ancient principle of Guru-Shishya Paramparā – the transmission of spiritual knowledge from teacher to student. His immediate interest in the science of Yoga has emerged after accidentally reading the BHAGAVAD GITA in 2012. Fascinated by the thorough parallels between the Daoist principles of following the natural way (Dao) with equanimity of Lao Tzu in Dao De Jing and the ideas of Abhyasa (practice without expectations) and Vairagya (detachment) in the Gita led to him embarking on his Yoga Journey.

He is deeply honored to study with the current lineage holder of Ashtanga Yoga tradition. Since 2015 he made 5 consecutive trips of 2 to 3 months each to the source of the Tradition – the K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute (KPJAYI) in Mysore, India.

In 2017 Kiril received the blessings from ParamaGuru Sharath Jois (Authorized Level 1) to teach the traditional Ashtanga Yoga method. In the last 3 seasons (2017, ’18, ‘19) Kiril has been truly grateful for the opportunity to assist Guru Sharath in the KPJAYI Shala. This has been unimaginable learning and humbling experience, facilitating silently the practice of amazing people from all over the world and receiving with deep appreciation the direct instructions from the Guru.

Eloisa Fernandez Iskandar

I was born and raised in Caracas Venezuela, and started to practice ashtanga there with Liz Carrasquel in 2011. Since then I dedicated my life entirely to it, not only to the asanas but to the whole spiritual aspects that it involves. I used to practice other styles before, but it was this method the one that really made a difference in me.

Since 2013 I started to travel to Mysore to practice under the guidance of Sharath Jois. His discipline and devotion for the practice were my inspiration to go deeper in this journey and continue to practice every single day. Since then I kept going to Mysore every year and in 2016 I received his blessing to teach the practice in his tradition.

Yoga helped me to become a more centered and focused person, cultivate healthy relationships with my family and friends, have a peaceful routine with less stress and become aware of the power from the actions that I decide  to take, because they are the ones that will transform my life.

Before yoga I used to be a preschool teacher in a constructivist school where teachers and kids builded the knowledge together by creating meaningful experiences that allowed the kids to apply what they were learning to real life and adapting every activity to their particular needs and interests. That’s why I fell in love with Mysore Style, because it is a place to build a practice which adapts to everyone’s particular needs and help them develop by allowing the practice to mold to every person’s different body and mind.

I started teaching Ashtanga  Mysore Style in the living room of my house in Barcelona in 2014 after that I decided to move with my former partner to Gdansk – Poland and we opened the first ashtanga school in the city, introduced the mysore style and builded together a community of practitioners. I have had the great opportunity of teaching with very experienced teachers like Laruga Glasser, Przemek Nadoldy, Steve Lapham, Ricardo Martinez, and also assisted Sharath Jois in KPJAYI this year in February.

The most important for me is that I’m married to the practice, I do it every morning without excuses, because I’m convinced that to share yoga with other students the most important is to have enough experience which is given by the self practice, this meaning not just the asanas but the practice of having a clean body a clean mind and a healthy lifestyle.

Every year when I go to​ Mysore I assist to Philosophy and chanting classes with Dr. M. Jeyashree and Prof. M. Narasimha in Anatha Research Foundation, thanks to this I have learned to see reality in a more clear way and find peace in the most difficult moments.

In my free time I love to cook and share with my friends, watch stand up comedies, go the nature and enjoy a nice view, drink coffee, go for scooter rides and eat peanut butter with dates.

Steve Lapham

It was in 1998 that Ashtanga yoga came into my life, and I would have to say that it was just in time. Life for me was pretty crazy at that point and if I hadn’t found the therapy of the daily practice Ashtanga provi­des, then it would probably be a different story for me today. There is something very special that happens to a person when the practice takes hold, & this is what I wish to share with you.

In 2002, I first began practice with Sri K Pattabhi Jois and R. Sharath Jois on their tour in New Zealand. The late Guruji really in­spired me and since 2004 I have been returning to Mysore deepening my connection to Ashtanga at its source by continuing with Sharath. In 2010, my dedication to the practice was recognized by Sharath & I was then selected for his level 2 (full intermediate series) training for authorised students.

Today, my daily practice includes the 4th series and the Ashtanga pra­nayama sequence. I am so passionate about these systems and belie­ve in their efficacy towards ultimate health, that I continue to study classical Yoga philosophy, Sanskrit and Ayurveda and bring these practices of my direct experience into the class.

Spending time with people who inspire me like Rolf Nau­jokat and other senior practitioners keep the juices flowing and to whom I am also indebted for the dedication of these yogis.
