More ON Ashtanga Yoga & Mysore Style

Mysore is open to all levels, from absolute beginners to more experienced students. The practice is not led and all instruction can be given on an individual basis. As you gain strength, stamina, flexibility and focus, poses will be added on to your sequence, its recommended to begin by fallowing the half primary series and from there move on to the the full primary series. Enjoy the journey, don’t force anything, focus primarily on your breathing, let your mind body and soul connect in order to surrender and feel the joy in recharging energy from every pose and the full practice.

More benefits of a Mysore Practice:

  • You can doit on your house or show up and join in when it suits you. As long as you  finish your practice, you can come to Mysore class at any point.
  • You can develop your meditation 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 style is for everyone. Its great to see families and couples who wish to practice together, but had different levels of experience. With everyone in the room doing their own practice, the Mysore practice is a great way to work at your full capacity.
