Introduction to Mysore is for those who have no yoga experience or maybe it’s been awhile. Although anyone can begin a Mysore practice from scratch in our daily room, maybe you are nervous? This special class is for you! We will start from the beginning, go through the ideas and philosophy of this yoga practice, and learn the poses slowly. Plenty of time for question and answer. This is a two hour workshop. Cost of this class is subtracted from your first Mysore class pass if you join! Email us to reserve a spot.
Mysore is a method of practice for the Ashtanga Yoga sequence, a set series of postures linked with the breath. This is the traditional method for learning Ashtanga and allows one-on-one instruction from the teacher. You do not need to have any yoga experience or previous Ashtanga experience to begin Mysore. During the Mysore hours posted, practitioners come in and work at their own pace and ability with the instructor. New postures are slowly added to enable students to memorize the sequence and form a daily practice aligned with their individual needs. New students may find their first visit is only 20-30 minutes long and will increase each visit. Walk-ins are welcome! Above hours reflect the opening and closing times, and students may drop in at any point within the allotted hours so long as they finish practice by closing time. It’s possible to drop in and observe a class if you want to see what Mysore is about! Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns about your personal experience.
Led primary series class is for those with some experience with the Ashtanga sequence as there is less verbal instruction. However, once somewhat familiar with the beginning of the sequence, students are encouraged to attend regularly and simply follow along until they reach their final Mysore class posture in the series or are instructed to stop. This is a great way to learn breathing and pacing of your practice postures.
