"I have no desire to prove anything by dancing. I just dance."  

(Fred Astaire)


Thomas, Ekapadabakasana (Advanced Series, Part "A")

Manju Pattabhi Jois, the most experienced active practitioner and teacher of Ashtanga Yoga, trained Thomas in the traditional teaching methods as originally used by his father Shri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore (India) and officially authorized him to teach Ashtanga Yoga. According to his understanding of how Ashtanga Yoga should be practised and taught, Thomas also builds in essence on what he learned from David Williams, the first Westerner to have learned and taught the complete Ashtanga Yoga system of asana and pranayama. Furthermore, David Swenson also trained Thomas in teaching the Primary and the Intermediate Series of Ashtanga Yoga (roga chikitsa and nadi shodana). Thomas orients himself to what his own teachers learned in Mysore in the 1950s to 1970s, exclusive to the changes to Ashtanga Yoga that came in later years.

Additionally, Thomas has practised regularly with Lino Miele and he has also demonstrated his respect for Shri K. Pattabhi Jois, his daughter Saraswathi and his grandson Sharath at the Ashtanga Yoga Nilaya in Mysore.

Thomas has never injured a student. He teaches one-to-one lessons in the evening or at the weekend, mostly the Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series (roga chikitsa, Disease Therapy). If appropriate, he also teaches the Ashtanga Yoga Intermediate Series (nadi shodana, Nerve Cleansing), pranayama (breath control) and dhyana (meditation). Workshops can be arranged for upon request.
