Ashtanga yoga Helena Melkjorsen is a systematic practice and philosophy that develops one’s physical, psychological and spiritual strength and health. It is derived from ancient teachings and transmitted to the modern world by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009), R. Sharath Jois and Saraswathi Jois at the KPJAYI (Shri K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute).
