Mysore style Ashtanga Yoga. 

Learn real yoga.

Yoga is a practice that nourishes mind, body, and spirit.

Ashtanga Yoga is taught one-on-one in a group setting. Practice is done at your own pace and in your own time. You'll learn how to practice on your own, so that when you need to, you can.

DC Ashtanga is a grassroots yoga practice community.

We teach Mysore Style Ashtanga Yoga.

DC Ashtanga is directed by Level 2 Authorized Ashtanga Yoga Teacher, Michael Joel Hall. 


What our students say

Ashtanga yoga is an experiential practice-- so lets hear from those that have experienced it.

I had found what I didn’t know I was looking for: a space in which to come, exactly as I was, and dive deep into a practice which would not only accept my imbalances, but help me to work with them. This has been my experience of Michael’s teaching style: accepting, open, loving, and firmly dedicated to doing the work of the practice. He goes above and beyond to meet his students where we are and continues to inspire me, no matter what I am experiencing, to use the tools that the practice gives in a healthy, productive way. I am forever grateful for his teaching.

Half of Ashtanga is just showing up, several times a week. The other half is learning the poses, and learning how to calmly execute them, controlling your focus and your breath. The third half is a better life, or at least a more-interesting one, as you bring what you've learned into your daily activities off the mat. And sometimes you'll marvel at how you've exceeded your expectations of what your body can do

Jesse Farrell

Today, what getting on my mat means to me is salvation. The practice helps teach me to understand compassion, love, and vulnerability, not just within myself, but more so in and towards others. It also ignites the passion, fight and strength to be my best, which in essence, truly humbles and grounds me.
