Pattabhi Jois was well known for saying that yoga is 99% practice and 1% theory. If we practice daily then that 1% adds up! With this in mind, Jodi organizes events for students to deepen their relationship to the practice.

Jodi teaches a full load of mysore style and led classes every week in the greater Los Angeles area as well as a weekly led class which is available online at

In Mysore class we establish the daily discipline of self-practice, and with the guidance of the teacher, we progress at a pace, which is unique and appropriate to each individual. Having community helps us to maintain consistency and supports us in this challenging process. In led classes we move and breathe together, to remember that we are part of the whole, and not separate.

Jodi leads workshops and retreats around the world to share her understanding of Ashtanga yoga and its relationship to ancient yogic texts and to teach many of the elements of practice which require more time and focus to assimilate. These workshops are designed to help deepen each students experience in their daily practice.

In addition to her weekly schedule, Jodi has created Shanti Shala Events which host workshops in LA with the worlds best Ashtanga Yoga Teachers. In the past two years Jodi has hosted David Swenson, Danny Paradise, Annie Pace, Manju Jois, Tim Miller, David Williams, Dena Kingsberg and Ron Reid. Upcoming workshops will be posted on the Workshops page, so stay tuned for more amazing experiences.
