The aim of yoga is to bring the mind to a stable state so that we may have a direct and uncoloured experience of the present moment. Referencing both the Yogic and Buddhist traditions, Jonathan will discuss the field of consciousness and how we can work with the various aspects of the mind to bring clarity to our perceptions.
Jonathan Austman directs the Ashtanga Vinyasa Mysore Program at Yoga Public. He has been practicing yoga and meditation since 1978 and teaching since 1994. Inspired by his daily practice, he approaches teaching as an act of service; working patiently, compassionately, and respectfully with each student. Jonathan seeks to make the practice methods of Ashtanga yoga accessible to all and sees a disciplined and focused yoga practice as being integral to robust health and a well-balanced and happy life. Students find his well-informed and direct method of teaching both challenging and rewarding.
