SHALA Ashtanga Yoga Centre is situated on 105th Street, in the heart of Downtown Edmonton located on Treaty 6 Territory. We are dedicated to the tradition and evolution of Ashtanga Yoga as it moves into a new era. 


It is important for us to not perpetuate the guru pop culture but instead to be true to the lineage and empower all our students and offer them a space that they can truly call home. We aim to help you make this practice a part of your life.




"The full Ashtanga system practiced with devotion, leads to freedom in one’s heart."

Sri K. Pattabi Jois, Yoga Journal 1995



SAYC honours the lineage of the late Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois and his grandson R. Sharath Jois as taught to us by our teachers Mark Darby, Shankara, Harmony Slater & David Robson. We are Edmonton's only yoga studio dedicated to the practice of the Ashtanga Yoga system. We offer classes for every level of student regardless of experience including traditional Mysore, Full & Half Primary, Ashtanga Foundations, Intro to Yoga Series, Ashtanga Inspired & Ashtanga Vinyasa Flow Classes. 


SAYC provides a safe and compassionate space filled with a community of passionate and diverse ashtangis from all walks of life.
