CLASS DESCRIPTION

 

Mysore class

In Mysore class, you will be doing the practice at your own pace, following the rhythm of your  breath. The sequence will be built gradually as you learn the asanas one by one with the correct breathing. Memorizing the sequence is part of the practice.  Mysore class is suitable for all levels and the instructions are given individually to each practitioner. This is the traditional way of learning the Ashtanga yoga method as taught earlier by Pattabhi Jois, and currently by R. Sharath Jois and R. Saraswathi Jois in Mysore, India.
