Welcome to the traditional Shala of Ashtanga Yoga, located in the heart of
the Lion City of Singapore.
Our classes are conducted daily
by John & Marta - Level 2 Authorised Teachers by Sharath Jois in Mysore.
Nilayam is a Sanskrit word that appears in many Indian languages. It originates from the verb-root “nil” meaning 'to stand'.
It can be translated as the abode, resting or living place, or a shelter.
At our 'abode' in Singapore, we welcome students of all levels and from all paths of life. You don't need to have a strong or flexible body to begin your journey with Ashtanga Yoga.
The classes that we offer are conducted in a 'Mysore Style'. This is the traditional way of teaching Ashtanga, where each student receives individual instructions from the teacher. You do not need to know the sequence in order to attend our classes. All we require is an open and willing mind.
“We're all just walking each other home.” - Baba Ram Dass
Days preceding the New and Full Moon are considered as auspicious in the Ashtanga Yoga tradition. There is no Mysore class on those days.
"Yoga is the way of disciplining the mind, training the mind, so we can bring the mind and body into harmony."
