CLASS DESCRIPTIONS
 

Ashtanga yoga is taught in two formats: guided classes and mysore style classes.  While both methods of learning teach the same sequence of postures called the Primary Series, each setting is unique and a compliment to the other.  Guided classes are led by a teacher and students practice together in unison.  Mysore style classes are overseen by a teacher who is giving individual guidance and instruction within a group setting.  We encourage our students to attend both guided and mysore style classes as there is much to be learned through both experiences. 

Intro to Mysore

Mysore is the traditional method for learning Ashtanga yoga and offers a highly personalized approach.  Each student works individually with the teacher within a group setting to build a self practice following the Ashtanga Series. Postures are learned one by one and tailored to meet ones specific physical needs and ability level. Our Intro to Mysore offering allows us to individually walk you through the process of starting Mysore including sending you additional information about how it all works and holding one on one conversations to answer all of your questions and get you fully prepared before you begin. Ideal for students of ALL levels wishing to develop a self practice or deepen their existing practice.  Registration is required.  See our Intro to Mysore page for more information.
