Krista Shirley is a dedicated student and practitioner of traditional Ashtanga yoga. She was introduced to this practice over 17 years ago and immediately embraced it as a daily part of her life because she was magnetically drawn to its healing aspect. For the last seventeen years, Krista has rolled her mat out each day because it is such an intrinsic part of who she is. Ashtanga Yoga has given Krista health and wellness, comfort, stability, peace, mindfulness, and an outlet to work on herself and help others.  

Krista began making yearly, long-term, visits to Mysore, India in 2006 to study with the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, Guruji. These trips played a significant role in fully connecting Krista to the Ashtanga lineage, as she embraced and surrendered to a teacher who could help facilitate her growth and provide a deep source of inspiration. Since Guruji’s passing in 2009, Krista has continued to make the pilgrimage to India to study with Guruji’s grandson, R. Sharath Jois, who has dedicated his life to continuing the work of Guruji, ensuring this deeply rich lineage, this parampara, lives on in the name of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois.  

Krista’s dedication, to both her personal yoga practice and the Ashtanga lineage, shines through in her teaching. Her energy is contagious and inspiring because she lives this yoga every day and experiences tremendous fulfillment in helping people to find and deepen their growth in this practice. Krista continues to travel Mysore because she believes it is very important that all students have a teacher, a guide, to aid and inspire them along their paths. In 2010 she traveled to Mysore six months pregnant. In 2012, 2013 and 2015, she took her young son with her to Mysore, and then returned again in 2018. Through the years, Krista has made eleven trips to India to continue her own studies, and has spent over twenty-four months of her life studying at the Krishna Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, India.  

Krista is a level 2 authorized Ashtanga teacher and founder of The Yoga Shala in College Park, Florida where she teaches traditional Ashtanga yoga classes in the Mysore method. When she’s not teaching at her shala, Krista is hosting workshops and retreats all over the globe. She has taught over 75 workshops and yoga retreats from Panama to Israel and everywhere in between. Additionally, she mentors Mysore programs in other studios who do not have their own level 2 authorized Ashtanga teacher. From beginners to experienced practitioners, Krista works individually with each student to ensure correct alignment and to prevent injury in each asana (posture).  

Originally from South Carolina, Krista resides in Florida with her son, Kaiden.
