ARE YOU NEW TO MYSORE-STYLE YOGA?

ALL NEW STUDENTS ARE WELCOME!

Mysore style Yoga is taught ONE-ON-ONE in a group class.

This allows us to accommodate ALL BODIES and abilities. 

New students begin their studies at AYLB with a one-month commitment to practice 3 days a week minimum working up to a 5-6 day per week practice. You may arrive to start your practice anytime between 6:45am and 8:30am.

Your first few practices will be around 30 minutes long. You will work towards memorizing a sequence tailored specifically for you. Over time, we will adjust & add postures and guidance.

As you begin to develop stability, ease and stamina, the postures and breathing/movement system will become

your own PERSONAL PRACTICE .

 

This takes attention. A lot of my attention. A lot of your attention.

Because of this we are only able to accept a certain amount of new students per month.

We will be accepting new students beginning October 25th.

Please Email info@ashtangayogalongbeach.com to get on the waitlist!

ABOUT AIMEE:

Aimee Echo is the owner and primary teacher at Ashtanga Yoga Long Beach. She is the only KPJAYI Authorized Ashtanga Yoga teacher in Long Beach, CA. She is also a graduate of Institute of Integrative Nutrition and a Certified Massage Therapist.

 

Aimee began her career not as a Yoga teacher but a rock singer, recording several albums and touring the world with her band theSTART and performing guest vocals for Red Hot Chili Peppers, Garbage, Teddybears and so many more.

 

She took her first step into an Ashtanga Yoga class in 1999. 

Guided by teachers Noah Williams and Kiki Flynn, she developed a daily Mysore-style practice and became devoted to the Ashtanga Yoga method. After practicing with the Jois family in L.A. on their tour in 2002, she was inspired to make her first journey to Mysore, India in 2007 to study at Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute (now KPJAYI).

She has since been a dedicated student of R. Sharath Jois and returns regularly to India for intensive study with him. In 2010, Aimee received Sharath’s blessing to teach and is Authorized Level 2 . She had the privilege to assist in the main shala at KPJAYI in 2012, 2016 and 2018. 

When not in India she has practiced extensively with many Certified and Authorized Ashtanga Teachers in the US including Tim Miller, Andrew Hillam, Dominic Corigliano and Diana Christenson.

An avid philosophy student, she began ongoing study of Patanjali's Yoga Sutras and with long time TKV Desikachar student, Chase Bossart in 2015. Under his guidance, she continues in weekly Yoga Meditation &  Yoga Sutra classes. Over the years she has also studied Bhagavad Gita, Yoga Rahasya, Hatha Yoga Pradipika and the Ramayana with Chase. 

She still sings in her dance rock band, theSTART.
