We are honoured to welcome Jörgen Christiansson, a long-time student of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois with over 30 years of yoga experience, and one of the few certified KPJAYI Ashtanga teachers in the world, for his first-time visit to our shala and to Zagreb, Croatia.
This week-long Ashtanga Immersion is a unique opportunity to experience the traditional way of the passing of the knowledge of Ashtanga Yoga, specially designed for dedicated students and yoga teachers: Jörgen teaches Ashtanga Yoga in the same traditional manner as was taught to him by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, with whom he studied with for more than 20 years.
Jörgen stands as one of the most formative teachers, having taught thousands of students from around the globe. His A-list clientele includes Madonna, Sting, Robert Downey Jr., Julia Roberts, Gwyneth Paltrow, Tobey Maguire, Gwen Stefani, Pink, Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell, Avril Lavigne, and countless others. He is one of the only few teachers who consistently has been running a Mysore room for over 25 years.
Jörgen will hold the space for your deeper understanding of how and why are you practising, and share with you his life-long experience of LIVING ashtanga yoga, rather just practising it on the mat.
Jörgen Christiansson is one of few distinguished Sri K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute (KPJAYI) Certified Ashtanga yoga teachers and has had a lifelong relationship with yoga. During his childhood in his native country of Sweden, Jörgen’s strong interest in yoga and Vedic philosophy led him to practice asana, kriya, pranayama, japam and meditation. His mother introduced him to Transcendental Meditation at age 13, and he later immersed himself in Paramahansa Yogananda’s Kriya lessons through Self-Realization Fellowship.
By the time he was 19, he found himself travelling extensively across the entire South Asian subcontinent studying with many great teachers from various aspects of yoga. He studied Sivananda and Bihar School of Yoga, practised kriyas and pranayama extensively in Varanasi, and for several years initially studied Iyengar Yoga with the renown Palkhivalas.
At the tender age of 21, he took his first Ashtanga yoga class with Chuck Miller when Yogaworks first opened and Jörgen fell deeply in love with the practice. Shortly thereafter in 1988, he ventured to India once again to find his guru. He says from the moment he met Guruji, he knew that was his teacher. Thus began his studies.
Today with over 30 years of yoga experience, Jörgen teaches Ashtanga Yoga in the same traditional manner as was taught to him by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, with whom he studied with for 21 years. Jörgen stands as one of the most formative teachers, having taught thousands of students from around the globe. His A-list clientele includes Madonna, Sting, Robert Downey Jr., Julia Roberts, Gwyneth Paltrow, Tobey Maguire, Gwen Stefani, Pink, Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell, Avril Lavigne, and countless others. He is one of the only few teachers who consistently has been running a Mysore room for over 25 years.
In 2010 Jörgen founded Omkar108 Yoga in Los Angeles, California, where he currently teaches and runs a full-time Mysore program and shares his love for the practice through weekly mini-conferences, chanting classes and kirtans. With his positive and inspiring nature, he intuitively guides students to break through old patterns and fears. Besides correct alignment and Vinyasa, Jörgen emphasizes correct breathing and attitude in the practice.
Jörgen enjoys the quiet life and is well-settled in his home-life in Los Angeles, California. However, he continues to travel and teach workshops and retreats around the world, hoping to inspire one student at a time.
