    I have been doing yoga since I was 18, over 1/2 of my life has been learning from teachers around the world, literally. В And PJ's Yoga Shala is the best yoga studio i have ever been to.

    When I walked into PJ's Yoga Shala it was like I was home. В Even though I studied yoga for a long period of my life В at PJ's Yoga Shala my love for yoga grew like never before. В A seed was plant, growing my love for Asthanga. В PJ and Larissa (married co-teachers) are loving, patient, open, understanding, encouraging, and helpful instructors. В Their depth of knowledge and ability to meet you where you are at (that day or in general) is exquisite. В No matter your age, your "flexibility" it does not matter they will guide you.

    Ashtanga is not like any yoga class you have taken. В At PJ's the practice В of Mysore is taught 5 days a week from 6am-11am and on Saturdays PJ, Larissa or one of their apprentices will lead you through a class. В Mysore is where В everyone does their practice (you start with the very basics) at their own pace. В PJ and Larissa walk around the room and adjust and help and inspire you to be at your full potential. В 

    Besides Pj and Larissa being amazing teachers the entire studio is full of warm friendly people. В Most of my best friends in this area have come out of the shala. В It is also a great community for networking; you need a hair-dresser, mechanic, carpenter,chiropracter, lawyer, dog walker etc…I'd much rather have someone that I see everyday that does yoga, that some rando. В It is a community I trust.

    The practice and the friendships will make you come back more and more everyday.

    PJ is an instructor that changed my life forever. В I continue to quote him and always think of his motivational speeches and stories. В He is passionate about yoga as a way of life. В I know that it has changed his for the best В and he knows the benefits that dedication can bring to the lives of his students. He shares his knowledge with his students with an open heart and giving nature. В I trust PJ's opinion so much and my only regret is that I don't live in the same city in which I could study with him. В I first attended PJ teaching with my partner of 13 years, and we continue to use PJ as an inspiration for our iindividual practice. В A good teacher is always with you, and that is PJ to us. Thank you for giving so much of yourself to all of us PJ!

    I studied with PJ for two semesters at UWM and he was great. В He was an enthusiastic teacher and wonderful Yoga mentor. В He gave me a foundation and appreciation for Yoga that far exceeded my expectations. В I still carry a great many things he taught me with me. В I would love to stop by more often than I get a chance to. . .

    I've had a regular yoga practice for over ten years. В I came upon PJ's Yoga Shala a little over 3 years ago, and after my first led class not only was I humbled, I was hooked. В I've been practicing with PJ & Larissa ever since. В 
    This is authentic, pure for sure Ashtanga Yoga as taught by the late Sri K Pattabhi Jois. В PJ was authorized by Pattabhi Jois, and both PJ and Larissa have been authorized at the second level by his grandson, Sharath Rangaswamy. Between the two of them, they have made over a dozen trips Mysore, India. Their dedication, discipline, and respect for their teacher is evident the moment you walk through the door. They practice daily alongside us students and stress the importance of not only an asana (physical) practice, but practicing all eight limbs as a sure path to Samadhi (the eighth limb).
    Having recently made my first trip to Mysore, I can verify that PJ's Shala is like a little piece of Mysore here in WI.
    If you want to enhance your life physically, mentally, and spiritually; and if you want to surround yourself with full-power people on the same path, then this is the place.

    PJ & Larissa are masters of this craft of Mysore Ashtanga. I came in as a beginner, and they were immediate in helping me progress in my practice. They have a welcoming hospitality. This Shala is one of a kind, and I highly recommend it to any level of person really looking to explore they're body.

    Yoga seems to be something that attracts people for any number of different reasons. В That being said, all varieties of people may turn up in a yoga studio or shala. В What this means is that a capable teacher is of the utmost importance. В 
    At PJ's, the student is afforded the opportunity to work with teachers who will empower them and support them as they take on what is all too often the greatest challenge an individual can be faced with; confronting their limitations and feelings of self-doubt. В 
    PJ and Larissa are gifted teachers who care deeply about their students and invest themselves fully in their well-being: physically, emotionally, and spiritually. В If you are seeking a genuine experience of traditional yoga, PJ's is for you. В If you are seeking something that will challenge you like nothing else, Ashtanga Yoga taught under the guidance of teachers like PJ and Larissa will take you there. В And if you are simply looking to try something new or to begin taking steps toward better health and a deeper understanding of yourself, PJ's is most certainly the right place for you. В 
    For years I have watched people come and grow under the compassionate guidance of these teachers. В They are faithful to the Yoga tradition and unflinchingly devoted to their students. В Whether you are experienced or not, if you are the least bit curious about yoga, or perhaps specifically Ashtanga Yoga, then PJ's has something for you.

    YOGA.

    Martial arts and yoga have been a large part of my life for the last decade and half.
    But it wasn't until I started a daily Ashtanga practice at the shala, that i realized i needed to look no further.

    Finding a practice and an experience that allows us to learn, grow, and hold ourselves accountable,
    on a daily basis is a rarity. the only experience that compares is traditional martial art training…but why and how
    you ask… because of Tradition. Honoring a lineage. working, listening, assisting with teachers that lead by example.

    And here we have exactly that. Two Students who have become teachers thru their dedication of keeping
    the fire in their hearts and honoring the lineage which they have been blessed to teach.

    the Shala really is a magical place.
    and since i have been practicing there, i have found myself in India, twice thus far, practicing
    with my teacher's, teacher…and hundreds of other beings from around the world.
    embracing for a third trip in the next year to come, i can only look back with
    a deep smile of Gratitude. В my teachers didn't want my practice to peak, nor did they ask for some packaged amount of money.
    they encouraged me to take
    the next steps and travel to the source.

    nothing of value comes free these days. and i don't simply mean monetary value. we humans can purchase anything. instantly.
    Value comes from time spent, encouragement, being tested and often pushed to our limits. Being guided to the places within ourselves,
    that we fear.. by someone who has been there themselves.

    the 'daily grind' appears less daunting and beautiful after each step to the mat.

    trying to write a 'review' about a place i have driven to over a thousand В times seems impossible.
    all i can say is that it is worth it. Your energy, your time, your breath.

    I have been studying with PJ and Larissa for almost 3 years. В This shala is fantastic and their knowledge is immense. В They are there authentic people with a genuine passion for Ashtanga Yoga. В Not only are they there 6 days a week (except for moon days and Sundays) but they hold me accountable for my practice.

    I was introduced to Pj after I lost my parents eights months apart from one another a number of years back. В Though I come from a Hindu background; I knew very little of yoga. В Pj's Yoga Shala is unlike any other place for practicing, learning and understanding "yoga". В Pj's Yoga Shala is unique in which both PJ and Larissa work hard to offer us an authentic practice of yoga which taught correctly and practiced daily can prove to be rewarding to anyone who adheres to the advise. В Authorized by Sri K Patthabi Jois; to teach Ashtanga Yoga; both PJ and Larissa have spent years of disciplined training to offer us this very powerful practice. В To this day they continue to make the long and often difficult journey to Mysore, India to study and further their commitment to this practice–and then offer their knowledge to us. Pj and Larissa care so deeply about what they teach, thus as a student I have a sense of accountability for not only our physical practice but our code of ethics. В Once one starts to truly deepen their understanding of Ashtanga; you will realize why Pj may sometimes seem harsh, but the truth is that Ashtanga Yoga helps us see the truth in us; and sometimes we have to be open to be educated on other levels that pertain to other aspects within our lives outside to what we do on a mat– Ashtanga Yoga is a way of life that helps us become more empathetic as well as alert with people and our surroundings. В And for that I am so grateful to have found this Shala I will forever call it my home for sanity. В Pj and Larissa are my heroes!
