Mysore Style Self Practice
Within a group setting, each student is taught on a one to one basis with the teacher using both verbal instruction and physical adjustments to correct the alignment of the postures. As a complete beginner on the first day of practice you will learn the basics of the Ashtanga technique and will be shown the first few postures. Practice will be a short one depending on your strength, but before long, with everyday you come, more postures will be added as you make your way through the entire series.
People sometimes express feeling nervous about coming to a Mysore class, however, we are very welcoming and with time there will be new beginners starting next to you and you will see advanced students also struggling with their new postures and you will feel part of the ashtanga community. There is no other yoga which comes close to the energy created in the Mysore room as a group of dedicated people move through their yoga individually, yet together. The early morning, the intent and sound of the breath, and sometimes the laughter are part of the powerful experience and the practice becomes a meditation which leads to personal growth on many levels.
Due to the individual attention given, the class is suitable for any level. All are welcome.
Led Primary Class
In a led class the teacher counts guides the group through the series by counting the postures along with the corresponding inhale or exhale as the group follows all at the same time. It is a great opportunity to learn the pace of the practice and the breathing as it is being taught by Sharath at the Pattabhi Jois institute (KPJAYI) in Mysore, India.
