PHILOSOPHY DAWN COLLECTIVE SHALA.
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is the foundation of our path and our projects. All of our teachers have more than a decade of teaching experience and studied diligently with dedication for a long time with either a senior teacher of the Ashtanga Yoga method or directly with the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. Each teacher genuinely shares his/her understanding and love of the yoga path with as much care & support to the individual student as possible. With all respect for the tradition we believe that the most valuable good is a safe and nurturing classroom environment that is not exclusively limited to a formal list. Therefore our Shala is hosting a rich diversity of incredible teachers: authorized, non-authorized and certified ones.
