What is Ashtanga Mysore style practice?
Mysore is the original style for teaching Ashtanga Yoga.
The name is derived from Mysore, India the place where S.K. Pattabhi Jois created his school and began sharing Ashtanga Yoga with the world.
Traditionally, yoga has been passed teacher-to-student, one-on-one. This is the concept behind Mysore classes, where students move through the practice at their own pace & breath. The teacher provides personalized instruction and adjustments, tailoring the practice to the individual student's needs, strength and level of experience.
Since Mysore is not a led class, students can join class up to 30 minutes after the start time. In our shala, the classes are from 7.28am to 9.28am. You can come anytime between 7.15am to 8am.
Be mindful of the class times so you can complete the finishing postures as well as your resting at the end of your practice, before 9.28am
The beauty of the Mysore style yoga is that you learn the practice, one posture at a time. You are moving at your own pace and will come away having a practice you can own for the rest of your life. Knowing the sequence and what posture comes next, keeps you more present during your practice and helps you experience the truly meditative nature of this healing movement.
Mysore practice is great for all levels and ages. You can be a complete beginner to join this class.
You just need to be willing to learn and invest your morning time to the mat.
