The Ashtanga/Mysore yoga method is where new students are given individualized instruction, including modifications, and experienced practitioners are able to grow their practice with the guidance of knowledgeable instructors. You will learn a series of poses, that will increase your strength, flexibility, and focus. Best of all you can arrive and leave anytime during the allocated time listed on the schedule. Most students practice in between 45 minutes to an hour and a half. This practice is personalized to you in a relaxed, quiet and peaceful environment.
Ashtanga Led Primary Series
This class is for all levels of practitioners, except for those who are brand new to this style of yoga (try Mysore style first!). The instructor’s intention is to flow through the entire primary series in the traditional sanskrit count with minimal instructional cues. For those who are less experienced, there are two options: observe the unfamiliar asanas, and/or modify the postures. Over time and with consistent practice, the student will be more comfortable and able to do the entire primary series in an uninterrupted, rhythmic, and meditative flow. This class is meant to challenge but not to overwhelm. Come, do your best, and lose yourself in the flow!
Both full and new moon days are observed as yoga holidays in the Ashtanga Yoga tradition.
