Founder and director of Mysore Vienna, Barbara Süss started to practice yoga and meditation in the year 2000, once she started with the practice of Ashtanga Yoga in the year 2007 there was no turning back.

Since 2011 Barbara travels annually to Mysore, India to study with her teacher, Sharath Jois at the Sri K. Patthabi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute. Every year, she continues her studies to immerse herself in the roots of this traditional yoga method.

Passionate about creating a space for healing & building community, in the year 2016 Barbara opened a small Yoga Shala (Yogaschool) in Vienna after being blessed and authorized by her teacher.


A lovely community of dedicated practitioners from all over the world is organically growing.
