As a student of Ashtanga Yoga as taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois  for more than 15 years, I love sharing what I know of this transformative practice with others. I've taken four trips to Mysore, India, to study at the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute w/Jois & his grandson Sharath Rangaswamy and have also been honored to study many other teachers who have influenced me — including Noah Williams, Leigha Nicole, John Berlinsky and Tim Miller — and reinforced my belief in this system's power to help heal mind, body and spirit. I teach and assist at mysore oakland and Harbor Bay Club, and offer private instruction by appointment (email deborahRcrooks @ for more info).
