Director/Founder

KPJAYI Authorized Teacher

Todd Roderick has been a dedicated student of Ashtanga Yoga since 1995 and is the most experienced Ashtanga instructor in the Southeastern US. Beginning in 1997, Todd spent more than a year (over the course of multiple trips) studying at the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute in Mysore, India.
Todd studied directly with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois & Sharath Jois in the old shala, when classes were limited to only twelve students.  He was given direct permission to teach the Ashtanga Yoga system by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in 1998 and is authorized by Sharath Jois / KPJAYI.  Extensive study in India, 20 years of teaching, 22 years of dedicated practice, and over 19 years of teaching daily Mysore classes demonstrate Todd's commitment to being a traditional Ashtanga Yoga instructor.  Inspired by the wealth of transformation and well-being Ashtanga Yoga brought into his life, Todd strives to uphold yoga’s ancient tradition undiluted and unadulterated, maintaining its potency and life-changing potential.  

Other notable Ashtanga experience is time studying at the Ashtanga Yoga Center with Tim Miller while living in San Diego 1998/99 and Rolf Naujokat in Thailand 2007.  Todd has studied Vedic chanting for the past 15 years and in 2004 was certified to teach this ancient practice by Sri Swamini Mayatitananda.

Todd also has over 20 years experience in healthful cooking and specializes in South Indian cuisine.  He’s a musician in the Flying Mystics, visual artist, and avid organic gardener.  As well, Todd has over 20 years of in-depth study in herbalism, nutrition, and natural healing.  Todd is also a serving director of The Mysore Foundation, a foundation created to serve those affected by poverty and rescuing Indian Pariah dogs in Mysore, India, and Atlanta, GA.
