Ganapati and Angie met in Mysore, South India. Coming from different backgrounds and cultures, yoga brought them together. Married on a sacred hill outside of Mysore two lives became one.
Angie began yoga practice as an extension of her fitness routine. In 2009 she discovered Ashtanga yoga for the first time and was later introduced to Mysore Style class as taught in the tradition of Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois. Angie had an instant attraction to this new experience of yoga practice. Her curiosity and interest to discover further led her to Mysore India, the source of Ashtanga yoga. In 2011 she made her first visit to Mysore studying at KPJAYI under the guidance of R. Sharath Jois. She has been making annual trips ever since. In 2015 she received the blessing to teach.
Ganapati began practising yoga at the age of sixteen. Wanting to know more about yoga, in 2009 he made his first trip to India to attend a four month residential course at Bihar Yoga Academy. While broadening his understanding of what yoga is, the experience did not fulfil his quest. A year later he discovered Ashtanga Yoga. The practice offered him a practical method to transform the body and mind. Wanting to go to the source of the knowledge, he made his first trip to Mysore at the end of 2010 to study with R. Sharath Jois. He would spend the next four years living in Mysore, South India, studying under the living master of Ashtanga Yoga.
From the end of 2012 to 2014 he was blessed to assist Sharath uninterruptedly while classes were in session. Under Sharath's guidance he taught for the Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois Charitable Trust at Siddeshvara School in Mysore. He is dedicated to teaching the traditional method of Ashtanga Yoga as taught by his guru R. Sharath Jois.
