Ashtanga yoga is a classical system of breathing and movement from India. The system builds strength, flexibility, and focus through a set series of yoga postures (asanas) and linking movements (vinyasas). Ashtanga yoga is the inspiration for most vinyasa (flow) yoga and power yoga classes–modern yoga as we know it. The practice of Ashtanga integrates breath with movement following a progressive sequence of postures that detoxifies, balances, and strengthens both body and mind.
Ashtanga is traditionally taught in the “Mysore” style, named for the city of Mysore in South India. Mysore Ashtanga is a specialized and highly personalized approach to teaching. Each student is taught the sequence of postures individually; given a one-on-one lesson within a group class. Every student is supported in an ongoing program that is appropriate for beginners and advanced practitioners alike. Over time, through repetition and consistent practice, the student memorizes the sequence of breathing and movement while building flexibility, strength, and concentration. The student is guided in a systematic and thoughtful manner through postures of increasing difficulty. This method teaches the student a practice he or she can take anywhere in the world, regardless of whether or not a teacher is at hand to supervise.
Students of all levels with a class package are welcome! However, due to the individual approach and progressive nature of the program, no drop-ins are allowed unless you already have an established Mysore Ashtanga practice.
