Mysore style is the traditional method of learning Ashtanga yoga as taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India. The practice is a vigorous moving meditation that helps to develop a strong body and calm mind.
In this beginner’s class, you will learn the fundamentals of a Mysore style Ashtanga practice including the basic technique for breathing and movement (often referred to as vinyasa) as well as be guided through the initial sequence of postures. All levels of practitioners are welcome whether you are a new beginner or existing Ashtanga practitioner looking to cultivate an independent practice. Students will receive one-on-one instruction allowing them to progress at their own pace. In the beginning, please expect a shorter practice. As proficiency is gained in the postures, poses will be added one at a time to the sequence allowing the student to realize the full therapeutic benefits of the practice.
In observance of the Ashtanga tradition, there is no practice in the mornings on moon days.
