Mysore is the name of a city in south India where Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois studied with his teacher T. Krishnamacharya and taught this yoga practice for many decades to students from his own home. This is the traditional method for learning Astanga, which allows one-on-one instruction from the teacher. Practitioners come in and work at their own pace and ability with the instructor. New postures are slowly added to enable students to memorise the sequence and form a daily practice aligned with their individual needs. It is a safe class for all levels, from beginners to long term practitioners.
New students may find their first visit is only 20-30 minutes long but will increase each visit as their practice grows. We are here six days a week. Benefits come from regular attendance, and we encourage you to commit to a few days a week, working up to six days if and when possible.
If you are curious and would like to observe the Mysore room before committing to practice, please email the teacher at the location you will be attending. We will be happy to have you.
