WHAT IS ASHTANGA YOGA?


Ashtanga is a powerful style of yoga that involves matching the movement of the breath with the movement in and out of postures. The focus devoted to correct breathing helps the practitioner to create internal heat, which, over time, purifies the blood and results in a body that is light and strong, and a mind that is focused and calm.
Mysore Style is the traditional way that students are taught the Ashtanga sequence. The yoga room is open for a block of time and the student may enter up to an hour before the end of class and should as leave enough time to finish by the end. The students are taught individually within the group setting and will practice what they have learned with guidance but without being verbally led. The room is quiet except for the sound of the breath.

In the Ashtanga sequence, each posture builds off the previous. Students are given poses one by one, receiving the next posture only after obtaining a level of mastery on the previous. The student’s practice will slowly lengthen as he or she gains strength, stamina, flexibility, and concentration.

All levels are welcome and no prior knowledge of yoga is required. Students should commit to a minimum 3x/week practice and are encouraged to practice the traditional 6 days a week.

Saturdays, New Moon, and Full Moon are observed as rest days. Please check our schedule for rest days.

Led Ashtanga is when the teacher leads the whole class through the sequence together. These classes tend to be slightly faster in pace, as the student will move with the group instead of on his or her own.

We offer Led classes for Beginner, Beginner Plus, Open, and Advanced Levels.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS?


Who can practice?

Anyone can practice regardless of age, flexibility, gender, experience. There are no drop-ins for Mysore except for students with a regularly established Mysore practice. Trying Mysore classes means giving yourself a month commitment to experience the practice.  All our Led classes allow drop-ins.
Pregnant women should not practice Ashtanga unless they already have a regular Ashtanga practice

How can I start to practice?
Just come in anytime within the Mysore class up to an hour before the end, or ten minutes before any led class to get registered.
Should I do some led classes before joining Mysore?
Nope. It’s totally unnecessary. You can if you like, but you will learn everything you need to know from the beginning, breath and correct form, in our Mysore classes. Our teachers love teaching all levels especially first timers!
But won't I interrupt the Mysore class if I enter during the middle?
You won’t be interrupting a thing! Our classes are meant to be run like that with people coming in and out, and all our students are used to it and too focused on their yoga to even notice. Take a look here to see more how it works.
Do you allow visiting students?

Yes! We love visiting students! If you have a regular Mysore practice please feel free to join us as a drop in for Mysore class. If not, you are welcome in any of our Led classes.

Cost for drop-in: $20

What is Led?

Led just means the teacher calls out the poses and everyone does them together.  This is different from our Mysore classes where the students move at their own breath pace doing a sequence they learn over time to memorize.

What should I wear?
Wear comfortable, stretchy, form-fitting clothing. Stay away from baggy shirts that may fall towards the face and obstruct breathing in inverted postures.
Are there any times where I shouldn't practice?
Do not come to class if you are running a fever. Women should take the first three days of their menstrual cycle as rest days.
