Welcome to the Keen on Yoga podcast with Andrew Eppler.
Andrew is the director of Ashtanga Yoga Studio in Norman Oklahoma. He is also the producer and director of the Mysore Yoga Traditions film.
Yoga has been a lifelong journey for Andrew, he has been practicing Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga for over 3 decades. He had the unique experience of growing up with the practice. He witnessed its evolution into world culture first-hand.
Andrew has spent many years studying the philosophy of the Nathamuni Sampradaya tradition that Sri Krishnamacharya belonged to.
He has developed an approach to teaching physical postures that fits the modern paradigm. He’s done this with the help and support of senior Sanskrit professors and the Royal Family of Mysore who began the Ashtanga Vinyasa tradition.
While staying grounded in traditional ideas about philosophy and the sequences of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga, Andrew believes that there is inevitable evolution in yoga practice. He uses a “global fusion” of techniques.
He is constantly researching different methods, comparing techniques from yoga communities around the world as he travels. And refining them to create the best approach possible in his own teaching.
