The Teacher's List (including criteria) but also so much more inc. Ashtanga classes from Feb 1999

On my earlier posts concerning Ashtanga Authorisation 1980-Present and on the later posts concerning the list ( now I mentioned the role of and how it had the original list of Ashtanga teachers that was eventually carried over to become the first AYRI list in 2008 (Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute - later KPJAYI, the K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga yoga Institute). is is a wonderful site, a resource I often forget about only to feel like it's Christmas every time I rediscover it, a list of Ashtanga articles that stretch back to 1999 and more besides. I've added a banner and link to the teachers page over on the right of the blog, that will stay there in pride of place. If you haven't visited the site for awhile, below is the, to my mind, sensible criteria for listing teachers. I've also added the main links to the different sections of the blog and the treasure trove of articles.

Today, via - the Internet Archive, I also came across even earlier manifestations of the list. It appears that in Feb1999, there was a list of places on where Ashtanga classes were being held, an asterisk indicating those teachers authorised by Pattabhi Jois.

In 2000 the list of places becomes a list of Authorised teachers (under pressure perhaps).

"This list contains only teachers PERSONALLY AUTHORIZED by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois."

I've included both those lists in the appendix at the bottom of this post and have added them to the original Authorisation post where you can also compare the 2008 list with the list as it was carried over to the AYRI and KPJAYI website, noting perhaps the names that were left behind.

The Ashtanga Classes and teachers list is part of the history of the practice, the tradition if you will but the list is only one part of this amazing website.

Looking at the names, the address of those early studios, shalas and early places of practice I thought it might be nice to add old photos of the locations. If your old studio is listed and you have a photo or if you were a student there and have a picture of the outside of the building and possibly from inside feel free to pass it along on my fb blog page or send me a link to the photo in comments and I'll add the photos next to the name on the list. If you don't have a photo yourself perhaps send the link to someone you think may have. I imagine many of these old studios (some still current)  hold fond memories for those who practiced there. 

This will all end up on the permanent  Ashtanga authorisation page at the top of the blog.

Thank you Betty for all your work over the years maintaining this Ashtanga institution.

Links on the Ashtanga.Com Website


The Newsletter page has links to newsletters going back to 2004, each lists also includes the workshops for that year.


The articles are a treasure trove in themselves, I've spent hours reading through some of these in the past, then I would forget about the page only to rediscover it again at another time and spend another couple of hours.

I had assumed that the articles were old but they continue up to the presents, one from Scott Johnson, an interview with Anthony "Prem" Carlisi from last year.

All authorized teachers are requested to send their original authorization letters to AYRI in exchange for official authorization letters on AYRI letterhead.

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.

  1. Hey Anthony,
    Thank you for this great post. I have always found valuable. In fact I used to use the list as a massive reference when I started back in 2002, I still used it more than the KPJ list. It's not to say any list is better, it's just I felt the list gave me more info and details to how the practice was relevant to my life and circumstances. Which teachers I could access. Betty, who runs it, does amazing work in keeping it updated. I remember wondering how you got on it and if it was possible. Then, in 2014, I got referred on to it by John Scott. It felt like a real personal recognition, that even though I hadn't gone down the traditional path to Mysore, I had held a space and intention as best as I could in keeping with the tradition and how I'd been taught to pass on the ashtanga yoga method. John wrote a beautiful supportive letter about my practice, my teaching and my work and Betty sent me a letter kindly welcoming me on, saying that it was good to finally have Stillpoint Yoga London represented. My experience of using and now being a part of it is highly highly inspiring for me and I feel that the representation of ashtanga yoga teachers there is as valuable as the KPJAYI list.

    Thank you for all you do

    Scott Johnson

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.
