Petra Gordon has been been interested in yoga since she was a teenager. She met Guruji - K Pattabhi Jois in 1997 for the first time during his visit in Sydney, Australia, when he told her to come to India to learn yoga in his shala. Petra has been visiting Mysore regularly since then. Her practice and teaching have been guided by Guruji and his family, R. Sharath Jois and Saraswathi Jois and Western senior teachers who are keeping a close relationship to the authentic tradition of the Astanga Yoga lineage.
The focus of Petra's work is based on the integration of therapeutic values in Astanga Yoga and guiding students in daily sadhana. She combines this with her knowledge on natural healing and living.
OM SHANTI – Peace for all
