Radha and Pierre’s teaching style is to ‘guide without interference’ and to encourage without pressure, enabling students to discover their full potential.
Their view is that people of all ages and conditions can benefit from this Yoga and it has been their aim to pass on Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga in such a way that it does not clutter the mind with unnecessary dogmas, instead leaving both body and mind free to develop from its own inner wisdom. They believe that Yoga should enhance the enjoyment of life by making everything we do less complicated.
Radha has been studying and teaching Yoga since the 1970’s. Then she met Sri K Pattabhi Jois and learned the Ashtanga Vinyasa system from him. For many years she returned to Mysore regularly spending whole winters doing her practice in his presence, with his guidance and, later, when he was joined by his grandson Sharath. She continues to teach the classes inspired by her experiences with them.
Pierre is a direct student of Sri K Pattabhi Jois and visited him regularly in Mysore to practice under his and Sharath’s tutelage. His interests and research in Yogic matters have also led him to study various healing therapy methods. Pierre teaches Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga at Yoga Plus and elsewhere around the world.
