The Mysore Program is a method of practice for the Astanga Yoga sequence, a series of postures connected by purposeful movement, breath and attention.

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.
The Mysore Program is on the schedule at the level of “self-practice.” Please do not let this hold back your enthusiasm for learning the Astanga method traditionally with us in the Mysore room. No prior knowledge is needed, and the sequence does not need to be memorised before you start. The teacher is here to guide you from the start!
