Ethan Ward Profile - Mysore yoga Cape Town Traditional Ashtanga Yoga Shala - KPJAYI Authorized Level 2 Teacher - Yoga Photography by Alessia Campostrini

Ethan is a dedicated student & teacher of the Ashtanga method. This daily practice has brought together his lifetime of inquiry into optimizing the function of the human body. Deeper awareness of his spiritual path rapidly led him to a colourful and chaotic city in south India, where he would be one of thousands of devoted practitioners who travel each year from every corner of the globe to learn yoga from R. Sharath Jois. Receiving the Authorization of his teacher to pass on this method has been an incredible blessing, which then allowed Ethan the opportunity to assist Sharathji in his shala in Mysore. Having spent time travelling the world and teaching in some incredible yoga shalas, it is a great honour for Ethan to now be able to contribute to the community in Cape Town, and continue to share this practice with sincerity and devotion.
