Jangalika, House Of Ashtanga Yoga


jângal m (plural jângales)
jungle (large, undeveloped, humid forest)

JANGALIKA is not a Yoga studio. This is the place where I live, practice, study and teach Ashtanga Yoga.

A few years ago I realized that I couldn’t work in or for “Yoga studios” anymore. Most of these places (certainly there  are a few exceptions out there) compromise the quality and authenticity of the teachings for numbers: Number of students, number of different styles, number of teachers, number of sales, popularity and profits. Usually, in these places, the teaching; if it is considered at all, is the last on the priority list.

After teaching in a rented space for more than a year I was blessed to find this beautiful house in the jungle that is more supportive and conducing to my Sadhana, an austere and tranquil lifestyle and a beautiful Ashtanga Yoga Shala.

Jangalika’s  intimate Shala can fit up to 15 students at the same time but I prefer to not have more than 12 students practising at any one time. This way I can guarantee that every one receives enough attention always


The Shala

JANGALIKA: House of Ashtanga Yoga  is the only place in Koh Phangan, Thailand uniquely dedicated to living, practicing, studying and teaching Ashtanga Yoga.

Come visit! I’ll be more than happy to welcome you in my House of Ashtanga Yoga.
