Mysore-Style Ashtanga – All Levels, Beginners to Experienced students, 6:00-9:00am, Monday-Thursday, Self-Practice Sundays 7-8:45am
Mysore is the best and most effective way of learning Ashtanga. (If you are new to Ashtanga, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a private orientation/class). We offer Ashtanga Yoga in its traditional form, where the practice is shared directly from teacher to student. Each student is addressed individually. Mysore is not unguided - it is self-paced practice. All levels, beginners to advanced students, practice together in a supportive community environment. Students work directly with the teacher to gradually memorize, refine and integrate the sequence of poses so that they develop a flowing, consistent and established yoga practice. It doesn’t take long to learn. Beginners start with a shorter practice that evolves into a longer practice as they gain strength and flexibility. Be patient and remember that a regular, consistent practice, at least 2-3 times a week to start, is recommended to learn the posture sequence, and see the many benefits to the mind and body. On MOON DAYS** (see schedule below), Ashtanga is not traditionally practiced.
Join us and experience the beauty of a Mysore-style class. Mysore is unique and like no other yoga class you’ve ever tried. It is quiet, meditative, supportive – and fun!
Why Mysore-style practice?
Doors open 6:15am, opening chant starts around 7am. Please plan to be in your finishing poses by 8:30am.
This led class moves through all of the Ashtanga Primary Series in sequence. This class is for Mysore/Ashtanga practitioners, or those with a consistent and strong Vinyasa Yoga practice (with some Mysore or Primary Series experience). This class helps students develop the discipline of following the rhythmic breath count of the traditional led Ashtanga Primary series practice. Minimal instruction or assists in this class (if you want assists, take Mysore class with us!). Rather, it is a flowing, breathing practice in community with the vinyasa count and the breath of the collective class.
