Ashtanga Authorisation 1980 - Present. Includes first ONLINE teaching list ( 2004) and first AYRI teachers list (2008).

This post will become a permanent page at the top of the blog, a work in progress attempt to chart the development of the Ashtanga Authorisation process alongside my other pages on Ashtanga Vinyasa History.

Update 2 

Note: On whether Sharath should apologies for his grandfather's behaviour? It strikes me as more the case that the KPJAYI should acknowledge publicly (on their website rather than reletively privately in a conference ) that Pattabhi Jois acted wrongly, inexcusably, and apologise to those harmed on his behalf rather than  treat him as an enlightened yogi every guru purinam. My understanding is that Sharat and Saraswati were aware of Pattabhi Jois' behaviour  (this is coming as no shock, no surprise), and while they are said to have tried to stop it, ultimately they effectively allowed the behaviour to happen again and again. If Sharath reserves the right to authorise as well as removed authorised and certified teachers from the KPJAYI list based on his perception of whether these teachers are faithful to the practice and values promoted by the KPJAYI they should begin by condemning the actions of it's founder.

"Guruji gathered us together for one final meeting.  At this gathering he told us which westerners he felt were qualified to teach.  It was a fairly short list—David, Brad, Nancy, Gary, and a few others.  Since Brad had decided to move to Maui, he wanted me to take over his school in Encinitas.  He asked Guruji, “What about Tim?”  Guruji looked perplexed and said, “Who?” “Tim,” Brad repeated,  and pointed at me.  “Oh, that man,” Guruji replied, and studied me for a moment.  “Yes, that man is some better, okay.” 

And so, on the magical island of Maui in December of 1980, Guruji reluctantly granted me permission to teach.  One stipulation was that I was to send him Guru Dakshina (one tenth of my earnings as a yoga teacher) every month.  It seemed a small price to pay for his blessing"
Tim Miller 'Dust'.


"This past Sunday during the final panel discussion of the 2016 Ashtanga Yoga Confluence, a question was asked about the concept of Parampara and how it is interpreted in the Ashtanga tradition. David Swenson reminded all of us that Guruji’s own eldest son, Manju, was present in the room, and if anyone could be considered the true lineage holder it would be him. Everyone in the room stood up and gave Manju an ovation. It was a very moving moment. I looked over at Dena and saw her eyes welling up with tears just like mine. Manju was very gracious and said that as far as he was concerned, all of us sharing the stage with him and countless other teachers throughout the world are all part of the Parampara.

He explained that his father was very generous with his teachings—that his primary concern was with the practice spreading throughout the world because of his firm conviction that Ashtanga Yoga is the very best thing one can do to insure physical, mental, and spiritual health." 
Tuesdays with Timji


This from KPJAYI Certified Ashtanga teacher Mark Robberds on fb today addressed to the Yoga community

"Dear yoga community, 

This is my Certification from KPJAYI or AYRI as it was called back then. I'm not sure if you are aware of this, but this is the only institute in the world that can 'Certify' Ashtanga teachers in the lineage of Sri K Pattabhi Jois. I am writing this because I've noticed that there are a lot of people selling Ashtanga Teacher Trainings to unknowing students out there. I have devoted the greater part of the last 20 years to this practice and tradition, for more than 15 years almost every dollar that I have earned I have put into my continuing education and study with my teachers. I am not alone in this: I have seen thousands of dedicated practitioners pouring their heart and soul into this practice day after day and year after year. 

     I am by no means a perfect human being, so I cannot throw the first stone - but I feel a need to voice my opinion about this since I've noticed that there are students going to Mysore and practicing with Sharath, and then going and running these Ashtanga Teacher Trainings. First of all, there are so many long time students that I know who could not get into the shala this year because it was too full - so those people are taking the place of others that are actually students of Sharath, and not just going to Mysore to get their photo taken outside of the shala, and then claiming to be Ashtanga teachers. Secondly, by 'Certifying' students you are making the word 'Certified' a joke, and you are lying to the students who are paying you. 

     Call it something else - Hatha, Vinyasa, Power, or clarify that you are teaching Patanjali's Ashtanga Yoga philosophy, but don't mislead people by calling it an Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training. 

     I know there is a want and need for people to deepen their studies, so I would recommend you to go to the teachers who have been teaching for 20 years or more, like Richard Freeman, Tim Miller, Dena Kingsberg to name just a few. Don't go to these opportunists who are running a business out of the trainings - because no one can teach you to be an Ashtanga teacher overnight. It takes more than that. You need to be a student first and practice at the source or with teachers connected the lineage".

If you are a friend of Mark's on fb he includes a very cool photo of his certification that looks more 1970 than 2010. 

I am very much in agreement with Mark's last paragraph but while I too feel that what characterises our practice of Ashtanga vinyasa is a dedicated daily practice over a period of years I do not feel that KPJAYI should have sole authority to Authorise teachers on behalf of the Ashtanga community ,which is the subject of my post below.



This from Mark Robberds on fb today ( I just checked, he posted this on his public page as well as his personal page).

Mark Robberds 9 hrs · 
"To end any speculation as to why I have been taken of the KPJAYI list I feel the need to tell my story. In April last year I noticed I had been taken off the list and then a friend informed me that there were rumours going around about it. I wrote to Usha in June to ask if it was true and she replied that, “Yes, we have been told that you are not teaching traditionally and mixing in different things and we are waiting for you to explain yourself”. I wrote back saying that I am teaching 5 days a week Mysore classes and one Led class per week. I teach chanting and philosophy and technique workshops to help students better understand the postures”. She wrote back saying, “Ok, I will inform Sharath.” The next thing I knew I was back on the list. 
So, I’m not surprised that I am now off the list again, as anyone who reads my social media posts would know that I am sharing more than only traditional (KPJAYI) Ashtanga Yoga. So, I’m ok with it, as it is Sharath’s shala and his call. Of course it saddens me because I had such a good connection with him and I have so many fond memories of the times I had as his student. However I don’t agree with everything that is taught, for example I don’t believe that ‘catching’ your ankles or knees in a backbend should be a requirement. I also believe that just as we modify the practice for pregnant women or for disabled people, we need to modify the practice in some way, and address dysfunctional movement patterns in almost all individuals because we all come to the practice with imbalances - otherwise people end up getting injured and leave the practice feeling bitter. All I’ve ever tried to do is help my students practice in a more intelligent and sustainable way so that they can continue to enjoy the practice and integrate it into the rest of their lives for their lifetime. But, I accept that Sharath doesn’t have to agree with my approach, and therefore I accept his decision and I will move forward with no hard feelings. I will continue to share all that I can in the best way that I can and I hope that some of you will continue to practice with me despite what has happened. I also hope that there will be no ill feelings towards/from my friends in Mysore who continue to practice with Sharath and of course no ill will between Sharath and myself. In the end we are all doing the best we can in this life. Big love to all. ❤️  "


In the next few days/weeks I intend to include quotes by the early teachers, from different sources, relating to how they first received blessing to teach directly from Pattabhi Jois (beginning with the quote at the top of the post from Tim Miller).

Around the time of Pattabhi Jois' passing all teachers of Ashtanga were requested to send in their Authorisation letters or those letters by Pattabhi Jois giving his blessing to teach to have them replaced with new Authorisation letters on the new letterhead

"All authorised teachers are requested to send their original authorisation letters to AYRI in exchange for official authorisation letters on AYRI letterhead. AYRI will then notify of the teachers' names that can be re-listed on". 

This was perhaps the first souring of the Ashtanga teacher authorisation process. It may go back further however, to the move from a general letter of blessing from Pattabhi Jois to a more formal Authorisation  from the institute in the late 90s

"In addition to receiving certification or authorisation to teach, you are required to teach Ashtanga Yoga in the TRADITIONAL FORMAT. The traditional format consists of daily classes in the Mysore style in correct sequential order and without deviation from the traditional form of the asanas as taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois at the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute in Mysore, South India. The traditional format includes the practices outlined in the Yoga Mala, Astanga Yoga by Lino Miele, and Ashtanga Yoga by John Scott. Explicitly indicate on your website and brochures that such traditional Ashtanga Yoga is offered". 2004

Currently I'm hearing unofficially that Authorisation follows a minimum of three extended visits to Mysore and a cost of more than a $1000 dollars paid to the institute for an authorisation letter which will expire after 2 years? I've heard Certification costs between $2000 and $4000. 

There seems to be a growing consensus of opinion among many that there needs to be a reevaluation of the Ashtanga Authorisation process.

The first AYRI ONLINE teachers list (2004) has 133 teachers mentioned

The current (2016) KPJAYI  list has 547 teachers mentioned
(Africa -2, Asia-113, Australia and NZ- 40, Central and South America-26, Europe-131, North America-235)

( I'm hoping that under a promise of anonymity some recently authorised teachers may get in touch with me to reveal the ACTUAL cost of authorisation and certification to give a more up-to-date accurate figure as well as the cost of renewal, is it $1000 to renew your letter of authorisation each year, if so KPJAYI would supposedly be raking in $250,000 a year in renewal fees and growing all the time.)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- picked up on the dramatic increase in teacher authorisation between 2002 and 2006

"Here we take a close look at the trend in Ashtanga yoga teachers during the past four years. It looks like the number of Ashtanga yoga teachers, authorized or certified by the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute grew by 179% from February 2002 to December 2006 (which means that we underestimated student growth earlier).
Not only that, but it also seems that the rate of teacher authorizations is increasing.

Number of teachers authorized or certified by AYRIDo you detect a trend?
This data comes from’s monthly newsletters which publishes new teachers’ names every month – we looked at all the newsletters from March 2002 until December 2006.

The total number of authorized Ashtanga teachers was 176 (including 34 certified teachers) as of December 29, 2006. Since early 2002, a total of 113 new teacher authorizations have been announced on".

My personal feeling is that the KPJAYI can no longer claim that only authorisation by the institute is valid.

"The list on this website constitutes the official record of teachers approved by the KPJAYI, which is the only authority able to authorise or certify individuals to teach the ashtanga yoga method as taught by Shri K. Pattabhi Jois and R. Sharath. There are no teacher training programs approved by this Institute under any name (e.g., Ashtanga Teacher Intensive); teachers that are listed on this website are experienced practitioners and dedicated students who have shown a considerable degree of proficiency and appreciation of ashtanga yoga in its traditional form and who continue to study regularly at the KPJAYI."

KPJAYI's authorisation should be recognised as a letter of approval by THAT institute to teach on THEIR behalf rather than the only authority to grant authorisation, similar institutes, schools and programs of excellence around the world, led by senior teachers should perhaps be instigating their own programs of teacher training, mentoring and teacher development leading to approval to teach in their name that carries equal standing ( in many ways this is happening already).

I lean towards returning to the criteria and values represented by the referral teachers listing this was the list originally employed by AYRI until around 2007 

"To obtain a teacher directory listing on, you must be referred by a senior Ashtanga yoga teacher who is listed on

The determination of whether a person may be considered a "senior Ashtanga yoga teacher," for the limited purpose of referring junior teachers to the teacher list, is based on multiple factors, including: the number of years of consistent Ashtanga yoga practice and study with a teacher; which teacher (e.g., Sri K. Pattabhi Jois); special certifications within the lineage; number of years teaching Ashtanga yoga; works created (e.g., articles, books, videos, CDs and other instructional aids, yoga schools); and general standing within the yoga community. - full criteria HERE

The current list can be found here

But perhaps David Swenson had a better idea. At this years (2016) Ashtanga Yoga Confluence he (perhaps only half jokingly) suggested that rather, all students should be sent on a certification course to recognise good teachers rather than trusting in a piece of paper of authorisation.


One suggestion

Bring together all the members of the Ashtanga Yoga Confluence panel from the last few years, forming a panel of trustees for a nonprofit International Ashtanga Federation. Approval to teach is given by the federation (for a nominal administration fee) to those who have practiced Ashtanga for a significant period and shown, perhaps through assisting, mentorship, or apprenticeship programs or course or past teaching experience that that they can pass on the practice safely and with integrity.  
Other senior teachers will be encouraged to join the federation recommending perhaps students of their own who have already been through such a period of apprenticeship of have perhaps already been teaching.

Supposedly Lino Miele had the same idea a few years back and tried to set up a Federation of Ashtanga Centres.

"In 1993, he (Lino Miele) created the Federation of Astanga Yoga Centres with a few other dedicated students".

Unfortunately he set a fee of 100-150 US$ to be affiliated per year and the idea never took off.

I feel it's important that any future federation be nonprofit with free affiliation (sell T-Shirts to cover administration if necessary) and with a board of respected trustees to remove any suggestion of centralisation.


NOTE: I'm just a home practitioner  (9 yrs this month) and blogger living in rural Japan with no particular desire or intention to formally teach Ashtanga vinyasa, either now or in the future. I look forward however to more informed debate and discussion on the topic from others more qualified than I to do so.

“I get it. Working this system is like counting dog years. 7 years of human practice = 1 ashtanga year.” Stanka Kordic

So my nine years is like a year and a bit in Ashtanga years, which puts it in perspective.

Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute, Mysore, India

May 2007

1. How do I become an authorized/certified Ashtanga Yoga teacher?

You must receive an official Authorization Letter or Certification Certificate through the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute (AYRI) located at #235, 8th Cross, 3rd Stage, Gokulam, Mysore 570002, Karnataka, India. Only the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute issues valid teaching authorizations and certifications for Ashtanga Yoga. Participation in the Sri K. Pattabhi Jois workshop tours and trips to AYRI locations outside of Mysore do not count towards authorization or certification.

NOTE: A student should by no means visit AYRI in Mysore for the sole purpose of getting authorized. Their visit should primarily be for their own education of the lineage to further their own practice under correct guidance of Pattabhi Jois.

2. What is the difference between Authorization and Certification?

There are two categories of teachers, "authorized" and "certified." Both types of teachers receive documents from the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute indicating their teaching status. Authorized teachers generally are permitted to teach only the Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series and generally have made at least four trips to AYRI Mysore of 3+ months. The student must also demonstrate appropriate attitude, devotion to the practice, and proficiency in the Primary Series (and usually at least half of the Second Series) as determined by the directors of AYRI. Certified teachers have completed at least the first three series of Ashtanga Yoga and must demonstrate an appropriate level of proficiency in these series as determined by the directors of AYRI. These students generally have made 8 or more annual trips to AYRI Mysore and have at least 8-10 years of daily Ashtanga Yoga practice.

NOTE: AUTHORIZATION SHOULD NOT BE REQUESTED BUT GIVEN. The decision to give authorization or certification to teach is by no means solely dependent on the number of times a student has visited Mysore. It is based upon Guruji and Sharath’s evaluation of the person, his/her commitment and full respect of the lineage of the practice. Authorization is given with the trust that an AYRI student will teach as he/she has been taught in Mysore by Guruji and Sharath.

These guidelines are subject to change and do not constitute an official published policy of the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute in Mysore, India. Please use these guidelines for your personal information only.

A Reminder

from Kalama sutra, translation from the Pali by Bhikkhu Bodhi This blog included.

"So, as I said, Kalamas: 'Don't go by reports, by legends, by traditions, by scripture, by logical conjecture, by inference, by analogies, by agreement through pondering views, by probability, or by the thought, "This contemplative is our teacher." When you know for yourselves that, "These qualities are unskillful; these qualities are blameworthy; these qualities are criticized by the wise; these qualities, when adopted & carried out, lead to harm & to suffering" — then you should abandon them.' Thus was it said. And in reference to this was it said.

"Now, Kalamas, don't go by reports, by legends, by traditions, by scripture, by logical conjecture, by inference, by analogies, by agreement through pondering views, by probability, or by the thought, 'This contemplative is our teacher.' When you know for yourselves that, 'These qualities are skillful; these qualities are blameless; these qualities are praised by the wise; these qualities, when adopted & carried out, lead to welfare & to happiness' — then you should enter & remain in them.
