Pauline Knox

  • Creece-Crete Heraklion

Pauline first began practising Hatha Yoga in 2008 and moved to Ashtanga Yoga in 2010. Ashtanga yoga is a system of sequencing postures and focused breathing techniques which formed the basis for the teaching of Pattabhi Jois, who brought Ashtanga Yoga to the western world in the 1970's. Jois was fond of saying that Ashtanga Yoga is 99% practice and 1% theory. So if one wants to know how an apple tastes, I can describe in words and I can show you the fruit, but it is only by tasting the fruit that one can experience the essence. So to know Ashtanga Yoga it must be tasted through the practice. In 2013 Pauline studied at the Ashtanga Research Institute in Mysore, India where she was taught by the grandson of Pattabhi Jois. Pauline also completed a teacher training course with Manju Jois, son of Pattabhi Jois, in 2014. She teaches and assists several classes a week with her own teacher in his shala. As a biologist she has an interest in yoga anatomy and physiology. She lives in the countryside on the island of Crete with her two children.

Free Retreat Givewaway

We love you. And because we do, we're giving away another free retreat.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Reconnecting with myself after a very crazy few months with a new baby! Just having that feeling of being grounded again. But also having an opportunity to connect with new amazing people. Getting exposed and Inspired by new (to me) yoga instructors (and community). Being in the presence of real, authentic and raw emotion (the whole spectrum).. So many reasons! Alyson

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
