Join in an in-depth exploration of the Ashtanga yoga tradition March 3-6, 2016 at the Catamaran Resort Hotel & Spa with Ashtanga yoga master teachers: Richard Freeman, Manju Jois, Dena Kingsberg, Tim Miller, Eddie Stern and David Swenson.

In India, the location where two or more rivers merge is thought to be an auspicious place of spiritual power. In the same spirit these highly respected teachers will join in a confluence* of classes, lectures, stories and events designed to share the profound gift of yoga they received from their beloved teacher, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois.

The confluence is open to experienced Ashtanga yoga practitioners as well as yoga students who are new to the Ashtanga practice. We offer a unique opportunity for students of all levels to learn from master teachers of this profound and ancient system.

The Ashtanga Yoga Confluence will be held at the Catamaran Resort Hotel & Spa  just 15 minutes from the airport on Mission Bay. When you arrive at the Catamaran Resort, please stop by the Confluence registration desk in the lobby. Please bring your ID to pick up your badge and event guide, which includes complete schedules and locations. Your badge will be your admission to classes and events.
