“Practice and all is coming.” – Sri K Pattabhi Jois

Welcome to Lotus Seed Yoga Shala

                           Our name has changed and so has our location to better serve the Ashtanga yoga community of the Finger Lakes region.  In our time at our collegetown location our small “studio” evolved into a Yoga Shala (a house of Yoga) teaching in the traditional style of Vinyasa as taught by Sri K, Pattabhi Jois. For us this was a natural progression from teaching the popular mainstream style of Yoga. We feel in teaching our truth we could better help you to develop your own personal practice and deepen your understanding of Yoga. We hope you grow with with us and move beyond the physicality of Yoga to the richness the practice of Ashtanga can bring to your life.

Ashtanga for us has been a process of transformation and we hope through our dedicated and devoted practice, we can transmit the essence of the tradition. We study with teachers of the lineage and are moving towards pronloged study with Sharath Jois.

We believe it is only through our own practice that we can shed what is not REAL and serve humanity with purity and humility.

In Love and Gratitude,

Diane and the Lotus Seed Teachers
