MYSORE

(all levels)

Assisted Self practice!

Mysore is the city in South India where Ashtanga Yoga originates from and is taught and practiced in its most authentic and traditional way. The essence of Ashtanga Yoga lies in a Mysore-style practice because the most guidance is transmitted in silence through hands-on adjustments. This minimizes the distraction from a student’s meditative experience. A practitioner learns safe alignment principles of each pose by FEELING rather than following verbal or visual cues. In this way, attention is drawn inward to the sensations of the body and breath to deepen the focus. When this inward attention is sustained, yoga is revealed.

In Mysore class, students learn Ashtanga Yoga sequence in the group setting under the guidance of a teacher. To ensure safety, the teacher works with students individually and modifies the practice based on their abilities and physical limitations. Postures are taught gradually one at a time to help the student memorize the sequence. Initially, new students will get more attention to help them strengthen their knowledge of the system. As they get more comfortable and become more independent, they will receive adjustments and assistance when required. This is where students cultivate their inner strength with self-effort and acquire confidence, physical strength, flexibility, stamina and peace of mind.

Note: Students may practice anytime between scheduled hours. There is no appointed start time.

PRIVATE SESSIONS

As an alternative to the class setting, students may begin the study and practice of Ashtanga Yoga with one-on-one private sessions where a teacher and a student work together in a more concentrated and focused manner.

TEACHER GUIDED CLASSES

primary series

yoga chikitsa (yoga thearpy)

Level 1 (absolute beginner series)

This is the greatest opportunity to introduce your friends and all generations of your family to yoga. Everyone needs yoga therapy. This class is for beginners. It will introduce students to the essence of Ashtanga and provide physical, mental, and energetic benefits right from the very first class. We’ve all heard about yoga and it’s many benefits, so now is the perfect time to start getting the most therapeutic aspects of yoga into your life from ground up.

In this class, the teacher will guide students gradually through the modified sequence of Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series. Class will be divided into seven (7) parts:

  1. Breath (interactive and fun way to learn how to breathe properly while practicing)
  2. Vinyasa (practice synchronizing breath and movement)
  3. Sun Salutation (short sequence of dynamic poses to help you warm up the body)
  4. Standing Poses (several standing poses and holding them for 5 breaths)
  5. Seated Poses (several seated poses and holding them for 5 breaths)
  6. Closing Poses (poses to help you cool down and gradually lower your heart rate)
  7. Rest (resting is extremely important at the end to let the accumulated energy settle and absorb all the benefits generated by the practice).

Level 2 (half primary series)

In this class, the teacher leads students through the modified sequence of Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series. Primary Series is a first set sequence of poses and is also called “Yoga Chikitsa”, which is translated as “Yoga Therapy”. The whole Ashtanga Yoga system rests on “Yoga Chikitsa” because it is designed to restore a health and vitality to physical body, restore full range of motion and help us to prepare for the other series in the system. All poses in the sequence are aligned in a particular order to condition the body gradually and allow safe progression. Teacher will give detailed instructions about each pose and plenty of modifications to accommodate all levels of students.

Level 3 (full primary series)

In Full Primary Series class, the teacher leads students through all poses from Primary Series. All poses are called out and all vinyasas (breaths synchronized movements) counted, following a traditional vinyasa count in sanskrit. The group moves and breathes together in sync. These are dynamic, focused, highly energetic classes and recommended for experienced students only.

A guided Full Primary Series class helps to reveal ineffectual self-practice habits, such as a wandering mind, losing the connection with the breath, or fidgeting between postures, and provides an opportunity to refine your practice by following the ‘count’ as it is traditionally prescribed and breathing at a more steady, slow and controlled way.
