Mysore-style is a traditional teaching format where students practice at their own pace. The teacher will analyze your practice individually and offer specific instructions to help you overcome your challenges and realign your body. In addition, the instructor will provide the student “hands on adjustments” and verbal cues as needed.
The name Mysore refers to a town in South India where Ashtanga Yoga was first taught to Westerners. This approach teaches students to memorize the sequences very quickly and diagrams are available in our practice room for those who need them.
There is no need to try to keep up with the class. It may sound a little daunting to beginners, but this is actually a very comfortable way to learn. For those who already know the sequences these classes offer a great freedom to move at your own pace while still practicing with others.
For those with injury’s or medical issues, this class is a great way to cultivate a customized practice, designed to facilitate your recuperation. All levels of students are welcome in these classes!
We teach the first, second, and third series in our Mysore-style class.
