We opened the Ashtanga Yoga Studio in 2012. It is a sun-filled, cozy space on the top two floors of a rowhouse in the Palisades neighborhood. We welcome everyone, from total beginners to advanced practitioners. As Guruji used to say, “Anyone can practice.”
The Ashtanga Yoga Studio is not intended as a commercial, corporate venture. We aim to provide an alternative, low-key place to just practice. Over time, we have formed a tight-knit community of students who always welcome a new face.
The Studio’s founder, Keith Moore, taught at the Ashtanga Yoga Center for more than 10 years. After initially studying Iyengar yoga, he shifted to Ashtanga, and studied in India under Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, the founder of Ashtanga, known as Guruji. Guruji ultimately awarded Keith Level 2 authorization to teach. Keith is also a certified massage therapist and ultramarathon runner. Over the past several years he's been lifting with an Olympic weightlifting club and doing CrossFit as new ways to experiment with yogas benefits. He brings to his teaching a deep understanding of physiology, anatomy, and movement, as well as the physical demands of a rigorous practice.
“Practice, and all is coming!” - Sri K. Pattabhi Jois.
