Day Christensen is a Level II Authorized Teacher from the K. Patthabi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute (KPJAYI) in Mysore, India. Day began her yoga practice in 2004 after receiving her BFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago.
Asana required a different type of strength and mobility that she had not bargained for as a former athlete. Despite the frustration and challenges, she often met on the beginning path of yoga, she continued and found a renewed sense of vitality and clarity.
Today, Day is an enthusiastic student of Ashtanga Yoga, practicing in the lineage of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, having completed the Intermediate series and learning the Third series under R. Sharath Jois’s guidance.
STEVE PYKA | ASTA YOGA
Steve is the co-founder of AstaYoga in San Francisco where he and his partner, René, have grown the largest Rocket Yoga community in the US since 2009, where they both learned the system from Rocket Yoga creator, Larry Schultz.
Steve’s teaching style is like the perfectly balanced Asana, equal parts Sukha and Sthira – gentle and firm. Yoga isn’t about the teacher or the poses, but the depth of your trust in your innate wisdom that unfolds one conscious breath at a time.
MICHAEL GANNON | YOGA LOFT PLAYA DEL CARMEN

Pattabhi Jois, learning the 1st, 2nd and 3rd series of the traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa system. He was authorized to teach directly by Jois in 2001, and Gannon then spent the next 13 years traveling and teaching Ashtanga in over 40 countries on five continents.
