Please note that we will delete your online application if you submit it before 4 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. 12/10/2013 = December 10, 2013).

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.

Authorized teachers by KPJAYI, who are already registered and coming to study in Mysore from October onward, may sign up to assist Sharath in the shala. Send your details to Usha (

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.

Please submit your online registration form 2-4 months in advance of your arrival date. Students will not be allowed to practice in the shala if their form is received within 2 months (60 days). Forms received beyond 4 months will also not be accepted.

Students coming to practice with Sharath are expected to stay for a minimum of 1 month and for not longer than 3 months of study per trip. There will be no exceptions to this rule.

Students coming to practice with Saraswathi should stay to practice for at least 2 weeks, though a minimum of 1 month is preferable.

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.
