Jeff and Harmony are kind and compassionate teachers. They have spent years practicing under the guidance of masters. If you want a life changing experience all you have to do is show up and let them impart the wisdom of Ashtanga Yoga to you. There is also a lot of laughter and fun a great way to spend your time.

I've been practicing here for a year now, coming in about once a week, and I'm amazed at how my practice has jumped to a completely new level! It's because of the hands-on, individualized instruction that one receives when coming here. It's almost like having a private yoga class every time I come in because of how much attention the instructors give you. The other thing that I love about this place is the absolute and utter diversity of all the students: there are old, young, plump, skinny, super-bendy and super-rigid people! It's so awesome! Everyone just practices side by side in a completely welcoming and casual environment with zero attitude. I just wish I could come more than once a week...

Ashtanga yoga, as it has been taught to me by Jeff and Harmony, has truly changed my life. These knowledgeable, experienced, dedicated teachers of traditional Mysore-style Ashtanga yoga have helped me to build a sincere and steady practise, as postures are added over time and when my mind and body are ready to receive them. I have come to learn yoga is neither about striving to move ahead nor pushing myself into the pose the person next to me is doing. Rather, I have come to realize the wisdom in developing physical strength and steadiness of mind to refine what I can do, and to prepare me to receive whatever comes next. This is wisdom I constantly take off my mat and into my life, and to me it is the biggest benefit of yoga...and Jeff and Harmony’s teachings. Jeff and Harmony have shed so much light on the many dimensions of yoga, to me and many others, and I am so grateful they are in Victoria and feel very blessed to call them my teachers.

Jeff and Harmony teach Ashtanga Yoga the way it is supposed to be taught. They have spent years learning from the source and they do an amazing job of relating that knowledge to everyone who walks through the door. They are truly gifted teachers and the practitioners in Victoria are very fortunate to have them. Anyone who walks into thier studio will walk out enriched, whether it's your first class or your two thousandth class. Check them out!!!!

There is a special kind of genius to Jeff and Harmony's teaching. First off, they figure out what you can do and what you need. They take into account current and old injuries etc. And they adapt the practise specifically to the individual. That's not what you get in an average yoga class!!! Thanks to AYV, when my wonky neck goes out, I do my practise, and often don't need chiro anymore, the practise is the treatment! Check it out! You won't be sorry.

BEST TEACHERS EVER!!! Jeff and Harmony are brilliant. They have done their time and are blessed by the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute in India to teach this amazing practice called Ashtanga. To give you an idea of the sacrifice and the dedication to the practice that Jeff and Harmony have, there are only NINE(9) people in Canada authorized as level 2 teachers. Jeff and Harmony being two of them. Learning ashtanga traditionally can be a little bit "different" at first. You don't have a teacher holding your hand the whole way through, but they are there to help and support you when needed. Practiced traditionally you start to get a feel for yourself, you start to trust yourself, but most of all you start to become happy with yourself. There are no better guides to help you realize yourself than Jeff and Harmony. In a world where the term "yoga" has become westernized and made into a billion dollar industry, It is nice to have two teachers who know and understand the lineage and history of yoga. Two people who practice what they teach and not some form of boot camp with the label "yoga"!

It doesn't get better than AYVic. Maybe you've done yoga before, maybe you haven't. Maybe you are intimidated to start a practice, maybe you feel yoga is a fad with good marketing. Whatever your head space is - I URGE you to go to Ashtanga Yoga Victoria with an open mind and give it a shot. Jeff and Harmony begin by listening to you - what is your body's history? Than they proceed to pour their years and years of training and study onto/into you - maybe through subtle adjustments, maybe through a sit down chat right there on your yoga mat, maybe by giving you the time and space to connect with your own body through your movement and breathe. The point is that yoga isn't taught at such a high standard in very many places -- what an opportunity for everyone in Victoria! And the best part is there are no egos, no agendas, no pretences. Just a local business providing a gateway to explore and learn yoga as taught and practiced in its traditional form. It just doesn't get better than AYVic.
