After practicing various systems of yoga since 2005, Victoria stumbled upon Ashtanga in 2011 during her teacher training in Honolulu Hawaii. After one month the impact and differences in body and mind were clear and revelatory. After one year of intense six day-a-week mysore style practices with level 2 authorized teacher Aliya Weise, she made the first of trek over to Mysore India to practice at the source with the Main Man, R. Sharath Jois. It was there that she caught the bug called Mysore Magic and became a hopeless ashtanga addict. Victoria has spent a total of 8 months over the past 3 years as a student in India and plans to continue making yearly pilgrimages to connect to the source furthering her learning and getting deeper into the practice. She is dedicated to faithfully presenting traditional Ashtanga Yoga as it is to those who wish to learn this intensely rigorous physical and spiritual practice .
