The Ashtanga Mysore Yoga method is a practice where new students are given individualized instruction including modifications, while experienced practitioners are able to grow their practice with the guidance of a knowledgeable instructor. 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 anywhere between forty-five minutes to an hour and a half. This practice is personalized to you in a relaxed, quiet, and peaceful environment.
Ashtanga Led Primary Series
The Ashtanga Led Primary Series is a class for all levels of practitioners, except 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!
This led style Ashtanga class is perfect for those who are new and/or curious about the Ashtanga method, as well as for experienced practitioners looking to get a quick practice in that checks all the boxes. It includes the Primary Series' foundational Sun Salutations A and B, standing poses, standing forward bends, standing balancing postures, backbends, inversions, and ends with seated meditation. The teacher will guide you through a 60-minute practice while giving cues and adjustments as needed, and incorporating the breath with each movement.
The practice room will be heated between 80-85 degrees.
