We are happy to welcome Petri Räisänen back to MYC in May 2016 for a 4-day Mysore workshop and additional in-depth classes on primary and intermediate series.

About Petri

Petri Räisänen is an internationally known and respected Ashtanga yoga teacher. He started practicing Ashtanga in 1988 and teaching in 1990. Petri is co-owner and director of Ashtanga Yoga Helsinki, one of the world’s largest Ashtanga yoga shalas, blessed by Sri K Pattabhi Jois to teach the traditional yoga method. Petri was a devoted student of Pattabhi Jois, and was authorized by him to teach in 2001.

Petri has been teaching internationally around the world for over a decade and he lived in New York City for several years until 2008. His teaching style and adjustments are gentle, effective, therapeutic and originate, besides his own practice and teaching, from his past work as a traditional folk healer and naturopath.

In 2004, Petri wrote “Ashtanga – The Yoga Tradition of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois” in collaboration with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and his grandson, R. Sharath Jois. His intermediate series book “Nadi Sodhana” was released in 2008. Both books are written as part of Petri’s ongoing pilgrimage into Ashtanga yoga’s inner world, with a great sense of respect towards Sri K Pattabhi Jois and the Ashtanga tradition.
