Let’s crowdsource: Collecting Ashtanga shala videos

Here’s a call out to you: Do you know of video showing off the inner workings — aka practice — at any Ashtanga shalas?

I’ve had a few private messages seconding the idea of trying to collect any and all videos. We’ve posted a few over the years here. I think we have, and this is not exhaustive, the following: Ashtanga Yoga Center; Ashtanga Yoga in Melbourne; AYNY (via the NY Times); Copenhagen; Pacific Ashtanga; Paris; and (I always get confused) Victoria or Vancouver. (I’m actually having trouble finding it, so I may be mistaken.

And so I thought we’d try to crowdsource and get as definitive a list together as possible. It might make for an ugly looking post — a bunch of videos — but it might be kind of nice, as well.

So, do feel free (and encouraged) to post links in the comments — or via Facebook, too.

  1. Here’s a video from a few years ago in my old Shala – Florence Yoga:


    However – I’ve moved since then and changed my space and name to Ashtanga Yoga Northampton in the last couple of months.


    No “produced” video yet in the new space – although if you go to Ashtanga Yoga Northampton on Facebook and like the page, I also post short videos of the Mysore room there too!



    ps – I’m thinking of doing the 2015 Namarupa Yatra next October. Was your trip worth it and do you recommend it? Let me know! Thanks again

  2. Ashtanga Yoga Vancouver has a YouTube channel with many nice offerings.

    The 40 minute documentary is my favourite: “A Practice of Devotion”

  3. The Ashtanga Yoga Shala in Victoria, BC, Canada has two video classes filmed in the shala, which you can watch for free at DoYogaWithMe.com

    A beginner class and a half-primary class.

    I hope this is relevant to the theme of this thread.
