Manu (Emanuele) Rossi is an Ashtanga Yoga teacher authorised Level 2 by the Sri K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute, Mysore, India and is a Senior Yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance (UK).

Began practicing Ashtanga yoga in 1997 in Italy with Francesco Sangalli. In 1998, he started to practice with Lino Miele and continued constant daily practice under his guidance for 8 years, discovering step by step the benefits and transformative power of Ashtanga Yoga. He began teaching Ashtanga Yoga in Tuscany in 2001.

The teachings of Lino Miele inspired a dedication to Ashtanga Yoga, which led Manu to India in 2004 and meeting his guru, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in 2005 when studying at the K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute (KPJAYI) in Mysore, India. He studied at KPJAYI for extended periods every year since then.

In 2006 Manu moved to London to continue his studying with Hamish Hendry at Astanga Yoga London, who daily inspires him as a model of dedication and faith. In London Manu has taught morning Mysore Style Ashtanga Yoga at The Life Centre and The Fulham Yoga Shala as well as teaching individuals and other classes across the city.

In January 2009 Manu and his wife Bella moved to Oxford where they teach daily Mysore Style Ashtanga Yoga as taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and R. Sharath Jois at the K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute.

“Bless my family for their eternal support and unconditional love, thanks to my wife Bella for her love and constant presence, thanks to all the teachers who share with me their knowledge and joy for the practice, thanks to Sri K. Pattabhi Jois for dedicating his life to keep in life this precious practice for humanity, thanks to R. Sharath Jois to keep alive the memory and tradition of Guruji Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and to carry on his lineage and thanks to God for every breath I take.”
