Please revisit our website for the date that Sharath will resume teaching in Mysore. Thank you.

For students applying to study with Sharath, please note the following:
1. Students must start their practice within the first 5 days of every month (e.g. Feb 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th). If you cannot start on those dates, you should wait and apply for the next month. This also means that in-person registration at the shala will only occur between 1st to 5th of every month.
2. Students must pay by cash when they register in Mysore, and full fees are expected from the start date. Our fee structure has changed. Click here for more details.
3. We do not entertain any cancellations or change of dates, once the online registration has been submitted. Extensions of stay will also not be granted. Students may practice with Sharath for a minimum of one month and for no longer than three months.

Enrollment for Saraswathi’s class is on a rolling basis, which means you must submit an online registration form (3 months in advance of your intended start date) but that you can start your practice on any day of the month. Students should stay to practice for at least 2 weeks, though a minimum of 1 month is preferable.

KPJAYI has not created or endorsed any Facebook page or Twitter profile. Please take note that Sharath has not given permission for use of his name or pictures for this purpose.

Authorized teachers by KPJAYI, who are coming to study in Mysore from October onward, may sign up to assist Sharath in the shala, but please submit your online registration to practice first. Send your details to Usha (

To place bulk orders of Astanga Yoga Anusthana (2nd edition), please contact Minimum order of 50 books.

Please note that we will delete your online application if you submit it before 3 months of your arrival! Students will not be allowed to practice without the printed confirmation from KPJAYI. Change of dates, as well as extensions of stay, will not be granted. We will also delete applications with the incorrect date format! Please only enter MM/DD/YYYY (e.g. 10/01/2014 = October 1, 2014).

Registration timings for Sharath’s class are Monday-Friday (3:30-5:30pm) and Sunday (3:30-4:30pm). Students practicing with Saraswathi may register with Anupama on Monday-Friday and Sunday (4-6pm). All students must bring a printout of their final confirmation email, 1 copy of your passport id page, 1 copy of your visa, and 1 passport size photo.

Students, please note that there is an auto-reply email that you should receive immediately after submitting an online registration form. This automatic reply only means that your online application has been submitted properly; it is not the final confirmation letter on whether you have been accepted for your dates of study. If you do not receive the automatic reply, it means that your application has not gone through. In these cases, we are not responsible for any inconvenience in future.

KINDLY NOTE that students who are coming to practice for more than 1 month should be prepared to pay full fees for all practice months. So, for example, if you are scheduled to study for 3 months in the shala, you must pay 3 months fees on the day you register in person.

All students, including certified teachers, must fill out an application form before coming to KPJAYI. Students who have not submitted their application form will not be able to enroll once in Mysore.

The list on this website constitutes the official record of teachers approved by KPJAYI. Teachers listed on any other website will be removed from our list.
