Ashtanga Yoga Sherman Oaks Welcomes Students

Ashtanga Yoga Sherman Oaks (AYSO) is the first and only yoga studio (Shala) in the San Fernando Valley dedicated to upholding the tradition of the Ashtanga Yoga practice. The Shala offers ongoing Mysore-style classes. AYSO has been open since November, 2017. The Shala welcomes students into the yoga practice with a modern open and clean space. Adornments are reminiscent of its roots of Eastern meditative traditions, and its simplicity is inviting and supportive.

The Mysore format of Ashtanga Yoga allows students to learn the series of poses at their own pace. This allows them to connect with the teacher, find their own breath, movements, and individual experience while feeling the collective energy of practicing in a group. The Shala also offers traditional Led Primary Series on the first Saturday of the month.

Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Bobbi Boston

Owner and Founder Bobbi Boston has been practicing Ashtanga Yoga since 1996. She feels it is her dharma to share the Ashtanga practice in the traditional Mysore format. Bobbi is a dedicated student who continues her education with her teacher R Sharath Jois in Mysore, India, and received her blessing to teach from his grandfather Sri K Pattabhi Jois before his passing in 2009. Fondly referred to as Guruji, Sri K Pattahbi Jois divinely created this practice and style in the lineage of his teacher, Tirumalai Krishnamacharya. Ashtanga Yoga remains one of the few lineage practices.

This studio is a testament of the dedication to the roots of the Ashtanga practice and how it has personally transformed Bobbi’s life.
