One of the first things that greets you upon entering Ashtanga Yoga Paris is a dancing figure of Ganesh. As always, Ganesh stands at the threshold, an elephant-headed, human-bodied harbinger of transition — between the busy street outside and the calm of the studio, between the known and the unknown, the “you” before your practice and the “you” afterward.
Ganesh represents a doorway to more, and that’s what Ashtanga Yoga Paris celebrates. In addition to a full schedule of daily Mysore, Ashtanga and Vinyasa classes, there are more meditative sessions like Restorative Yoga or Pranayama, as well as workshops and trainings.
FUN FACT: Ashtanga Yoga Paris was one of Paris’ first yoga studios to offer sessions in English in addition to French.
