Ashtanga YogaAncient system of yoga
The three main components
of Ashtanga Yoga
– According to Pattabhi Jois –
Breathing and movement system
For every movement, there is one breath, helping improve the blood circulation, thus effectively aid the internal cleansing of the body.
The three places of attention or action: posture, breathing and looking place
These are very important for yoga practice in order to cleanse and purify: the body, nervous system and mind.
Adversities surrounding a spiritual yet corrupted heart
A sustained yoga practice with vigor and perseverance alleviates these poisons through generated heat in the body.
Why is it called Mysore?
Mysore, named for Mysore, India where Sri K. Pattabhi Jois lived and taught. It’s self‐paced class allowing students to receive one-on-one instruction while learning the Ashtanga yoga practice.
All levels are welcome from new beginners to advanced practitioners looking to deepen their practice.
How is Mysore‐style different from other led classes?
A Mysore class is self‐paced, students are not limited to the pace and rhythm of a led class.
While led classes are a great way to learn about the breath and vinyasa, Mysore‐style is where you follow your own breath and focus. In a led class, you may just skim over a new or difficult pose, but the Mysore style provides a unique opportunity to work one‐on‐one with the teacher according to your own pace progressing accordingly over time.
