Since 1983, the mission of Upstate Yoga Institute has been to transmit the teachings of classical yoga in a spirit of clarity and authenticity. Our founder, the late Mary-Louise Skelton, received these teachings directly from her personal teachers, yoga masters Sri Krishnamacharya and T.K.V. Desikachar. The current teachers at Upstate Yoga Institute are full-time yoga teachers who have made long-time training and practice commitments in the various disciplines of yoga. Their passion is to guide others towards increased health and well-being through the use of yoga.
