Upcoming: Steve Dwelley Ashtanga SantaBarbara

November 12, 2006


Steve was raised in Santa Barbara, graduated with distinction in Comparative Religions from Occidental College in Los Angeles and began training in Buddhist meditation in 1988. His first trip to India and Nepal in 1990 awakened a desire to involve the moving body in the meditation process, and he began practicing asana. Important teachers: Erich Schiffmann opened the door to the depths of asana practice, Chuck Miller opened the door to Pattabhi Jois, for whom Steve finally made the study-trip to Mysore in 1994. Sharath Rangaswamy taught Steve much of the tangible material of the practice and has been a model of kind strength. Steve received an MA in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute in 1995. In eight trips he has spent nearly two years studying in Mysore with master teacher Jois and was granted permission to teach the system in 1998. He began Mysore-syle in Santa Barbara that year. He bows to the Lotus feet of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, and to those of his guru, T. Krishnamacharya, and so on…
