In Ashtanga Yoga we refrain from asana practice on the new and full moon. If you came to the studio and find it closed, please enjoy the rest of you day and come see us Monday.

Wednesday April 2 at 7pm David Williams will be speaking about his upcoming workshop at Yoga on Yamhill. We are lucky to have his energy in the room. The talk is free and open to everyone.

Namaste, Casey

We look to Patanjali for guidance. Thanks Pattabhi Jois for turning us toward the dharma


Near East Yoga in the early morning. Very quiet and peaceful.

I host special teachers from India and we spend the time it takes to learn what they teach us. It’s strong stuff but not overwhelming.


And we take them on exotic and beautiful trips where they laugh and bless the sacred waters.



And we teach kids. It’s fun.



Sometime we teach them at public school. This time was at Beaverton High.


These are special teachers to me and the Near East Community. Lots of lineage wisdom and time between these two. I’m always grateful.

With Jill Knouse. She invites me in to teach Patanjali Yoga Sutra to the Elevate Teacher Training. I love it.

I like knowing the yoga theory so I can use it. Here I am teaching Yama and Niyama in Sri Lanka last winter.

I was younger once- when Jamison Park in the Pearl was new and there were no condos.

I love music and chanting of any kind. I make a lot of the music myself to accompany the Mysore classes. It’s a form of devotion

Thanks Patanjali for telling us of yoga and how to use it. We make our own worlds and it’s good to have a method.

Thanks for checking Near East Yoga out. Come visit soon and often.

Namaste and Cheers, Casey
