ABOUT

8 Limbs, Chintamani Yoga, Gregor Maehle & Monica Gauci.

8 LIMBS & CHINTAMANI YOGA

Gregor and Monica began their yoga journeys separately in 1978. At that time they both studied and practised Iyengar Yoga, which established their solid foundation of physical alignment within asana practice. They met in 1995, each on their first trip to India to study Ashtanga Yoga. They were both authorised by K Pattabhi Jois* in 1996-7. In 1999 they left the Jois community to dedicate their learning and teaching to restore Ashtanga Yoga to its original tradition of a holistic eight-limbed yoga practise.

8 Limbs was born as a Yoga School in Perth in 1996, which Monica and Gregor co-directed for 21 years. In 2012 they moved interstate to live remotely, on a mountain, surrounded by ancient rainforest and overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Here they created their Chintamani Yoga blog site as a way to share their teachings globally. Their approach is founded on Patanjali Yoga and that of the yoga pioneer, T. Krishnamacharya. The asana component of their teaching accommodates the capability and needs of the individual student.

Individually, Gregor and Monica teach workshops and training world-wide. Together, they teach their Immersions in Bali and from their mountain-top studio close to Byron Bay, Australia.

*In the wake of the MeToo movement information surfaced regarding KP Jois’ sexual assault and abuse. Please read Gregor’s statement and Monica’s statement.

TEACHER TRAINING

Our mission is to equip our teachers with the skills, understanding and knowledge that they can experience the transformative power of yoga. We are committed to giving you an authentic experience with the highest quality of teaching, in a supportive, nurturing environment.

HAPPY STUDENTS

There are few in this world who can share such deep insights that yoga brings. It is clear to me that the information I require at my stage needs a particular level of experiential wisdom, mystical knowledge and a deep and profound understanding of light, love and essence. I’m not speaking lightly about this, I have met and practiced with amazing teachers, studied and healed under wise masters… Your beauty, love, knowledge and wisdom coupled with Gregor’s obvious progression and enlightenment of ancient wisdom is most certainly a beacon of brilliance. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU… for keeping it real.

– Sydoni. Byron Bay, Australia
