Sat: 9:00AM - 10:00AM

sun: 10:00AM - 11:00AM

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.

 

Led Primary

FRI: 5:30am - 7:00am  &  6:00pm - 7:30pm

Every Friday, a led Primary Series class is held in the morning and evening.  For both new and experienced students, led class is an important compliment to a regular Mysore practice. It’s an opportunity to ensure that each vinyasa is being learned and practiced correctly. Furthermore, surrendering to the teacher’s count and pacing, is an opportunity to increase both our internal and external strength, and our relationship with the traditional lineage. Students will be guided through the poses based on their familiarity and proficiency in the practice.

Benefits of
Mysore Class

One-on-one Attention
In Mysore Style, you will get individual instruction within a group setting. You are taught by your teacher in the Ashtanga Yoga method at a pace specifically tailored for you, your body, your level of flexibility and strength.

Flexible Start Time 
Mysore Style is an open practice time, meaning you may come and start your practice anytime between the scheduled hours. Simply leave enough time to finish your practice before the scheduled hours end.

You can show up when
it suits you

As long as you leave enough time to finish your full practice, you can come to Mysore class at any point.


You develop a meditative practice by following your own breath
Ashtanga is intended to be a moving meditation. Led classes are a fantastic way to learn about the breath and the vinyasa, but Mysore-style is where you follow your own breath and deepen your focus and meditation skills.


Mysore class is for everyone 
Mysore class is a wonderful way for individuals at different levels of experience to practice together. With everyone in the room doing their own practice, Mysore class is a great way to encourage each student to work at their full capacity. In addition, if a student has any physical limitations or injuries, the teacher can provide individual instruction on how to approach the practice in a safe manner.
