Megan Riley
September 8-13th, 2024

Join Certified Ashtanga teacher, Megan Riley, for this intensive practice week in Berlin!


AYK hosts Megan September 8-13th for a not-to-be-missed opportunity to practice with one of the few Certified teachers in Europe. This Ashtanga week includes 5 mornings of Mysore practice, a primary series led class, and 2 workshop sessions.


Content for the talks will cover topics such as the Niyamas as outlined in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and the mechanics of the Tristana. We will look in detail at how the Niyamas can be instruction to support a life-long practice, as well as go deeper into the use of Tristana, or three-fold method, for the moving meditation qualities of our yoga practice. This will include some philosophy as well as physical asana work, leaving time for discussion and Q&A as topics naturally arise during the practice week. Megan’s teaching encourages empowerment, supported independence, and a light-heartedness that balances the effort and focus of this directed and disciplined yoga practice. The things not seen but felt—energy, control, trust, determination — are as important to transmit as the asanas themselves.


Sign up for the entire week or book individual days as your schedule allows. Early bird discount is available if you register before July 15th. All levels are welcome, from beginners to long-time practitioners and in between. Do you have any questions or concerns? Contact AYK or Megan directly.

About Megan

Megan Riley began an Ashtanga practice in the United States at the start of her job in higher education. What started as a search for an exercise to reduce stress and connect philosophy studies to practice, the yoga led her to her first teacher and, eventually, to her first trip to Mysore, India. Between here and there, she traded in the academic classroom for the practice room and found space to combine her creative

interests and passion for teaching others. Time spent on the mat—the daily repetition with its inevitable ups and downs — anchors her spiritual practice through self-acceptance, dedication, and discipline.

Her teaching encourages a surrender to meet your self where you are for the day along with the work of recognizing old patterns of the mind and body. Within this balance of acceptance and exploration, the practice is revealed. After many years of continuous study and practice, she received Certification from Guru R. Sharath Jois at the source of Ashtanga Yoga in Mysore, India. She has assisted in the teaching room there and taught at Jois Shala in the U.S. before running her own Mysore program in Connecticut. Now she teaches daily Mysore in The Netherlands. She is grateful to her teachers for their guidance along the path.

Introduction workshop: Why Mysore?

The traditional Method of practicing Ashtanga Yoga is named after the city Mysore in South India. Unlike led classes where everyone moves through the sequence simultaneously, students practice at their own pace, moving through the Ashtangasequence independently while the teacher provides individualised guidance and adjustments.


Practicing Ashtanga Yoga in a traditional Mysore setting provides a holistic approach to yoga that fosters physical, mental, and spiritual growth over time. 


In this workshop we want to approach the concept of a Mysore practice step by step. Everyone is welcome, absolute beginners and experienced yoga practitioners. Previous experience in Ashtanga is not required.


Join our introduction workshop and find out!


Saturday, May 11 from 14:00-15:30

Price: € 30
