Mysore Ashtanga is how ashtanga yoga is traditionally taught. In a Mysore class, each practitioner flows through a set sequence at their own pace following their own breath. Yes, the teacher is present, however, they don’t lead the class. This is where the true magic happens. The teacher is there to hold space and offer one on one verbal and hands-on adjustments. Beginners can use our Ashtanga sheet to remember the sequence and are encouraged to attend. Mysore Ashtanga classes will help all practitioners understand the practice and get the attention they may need!
