Ayelet Even-Nur has been a dedicated student of traditional Ashtanga Yoga since 2004.
After intensive study with local teachers in Chicago, she traveled to Kovalom and Mysore, India to continue her studies with Lino Miele and Sharath Rangaswamy, grandson of the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. Ayelet began teaching Mysore style in NYC, while daily assisting John Campbell at Pure Yoga. After completing his rigorous Ashtanga teacher training, she resumed her studies with Richard Freeman and Mary Taylor, participating in their teachers' intensive twice.
Ayelet has continued to study regularly with many other senior Ashtanga teachers, and counts herself most influenced and inspired by Richard Freeman and Mary Taylor, John Campbell, Kimberley Flynn, Dena Kingsberg and Maty Ezraty. She feels endless and enduring gratitude to them all.
Ayelet's teaching is directly inspired by her own experience of the transformative potential of practice. Within the Ashtanga Vinyasa system, she focuses on anatomical precision and breath awareness in an effort to make the Mysore practice accessible and sustainable for all levels of practitioners. Dedicated to sharing the practice with whomever wants to learn, Ayelet strives to guide her students towards their own experience of the depth and brilliance of yoga.
In addition to teaching, Ayelet is also a painter and a potter, as well as a PhD candidate at UC Berkeley. She studies linguistic modes of self-dissolution and the relationship between language and body in modern Hebrew and Arabic poetry.
