My name is Angela Jamison. I was introduced to ashtanga yoga
in 2001 in Los Angeles, and have practiced six days a week
continuously since 2003.
In 2006, I completed intermediate series with Rolf Naujokat
before learning from him the ashtanga pranayama sequence.
I maintain a relatively modest pranayama practice.
Later in 2006, I met Dominic Corigliano, who taught me the
subtler layers of ashtanga practice, and eventually, slowly,
taught me to teach yoga. During 2009, I assisted Jörgen
After retreats in the Zen, Vajrayana and Vipassana traditions,
I began working with the meditation teacher Shinzen Young
in 2009. I meditate daily, confer with Shinzen about my practice
every few months, and take annual silent retreats.
I have made four long trips to Mysore to practice ashtanga with
R. Sharath Jois, and to study the history and philosophy
of yoga with M.A. Narasimhan and M.A. Jayashree. I will return
to Mysore regularly.
In 2011, Sharath authorized me at Level 2, asking me to teach the
full intermediate series.
