Ashtanga Yoga Monterey  is dedicated to the practice of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga in the tradition of the late K. Sri Pattabbi Jois of Mysore India. It is a continuation of our original studio on Foam Street, Ashtanga Monterey, established in 2007.

We are a community practice space. The new studio is a co-op for those who wish  to practice  Ashtanga Yoga in a welcoming, intimate space.  We also welcome those who wish to practice other styles of yoga to morning self-practice.

You will find experienced and dedicated teachers at our studio, each of whom has  extensive teaching experience  focusing on  Ashtanga Yoga. 

If you wish to learn Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga please be prepared practice regularly (several times a week). Please contact Ed or Kyonghwa before your first visit. email:

 Location   We are conveniently located at 700 Cass St in downtown Monterey; close to Pebble Beach, Carmel, and attractions such as The Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row.

About Ashtanga Yoga   The Ashtanga Yoga system is part of a living lineage of yoga that dates back nearly five thousand years in an unbroken line of teachers, sages and gurus and transmitted to the modern world by Krishnamacarya (1888-1988) and his student, Sri K Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009), in Calcutta and Mysore, India.

Ashtanga Yoga is the system of yoga that developed the Vinyasa style and from which “power yoga”, “vinyasa yoga” and “flow” style of yoga grew. For that reason, no matter what style of yoga instructors and practitioners go on to adopt, having a foundation in the Ashtanga Yoga practice will ensure a deeper level of understanding of classical yoga along with dramatically increased physical strength and ability.  More about Ashtanga Yoga..
