Ashtanga yoga is learned in what’s called a “Mysore” class. The Mysore class is not structured like a typical yoga class; it’s more like receiving a private lesson in a group setting. You practice amidst other like-minded students who are working at their own level and pace. ALL LEVELS More info >
Doors open 5:45am
If your practice is longer than 90 minutes, you may adjust your start time accordingly
NOTE - When Jim is teaching Mysore, all students must begin Closing Sequence by 7:45 so he can get to his other job!! :-)
LED PRIMARY SERIES
This is a traditionally counted primary series class. The primary series is the first set of yoga postures, considered most important and foundational, that are taught in traditional Ashtanga yoga. This practice helps practitioners deepen focus inward, learn to extend breath, and is meant to help detoxify and purify the body. If you have not learned the full primary series sequence you will practice up to the pose you have learned in the Mysore room. If you are new to Ashtanga we recommend our Introduction to Ashtanga course as a good starting point before entering this class. LEVEL 2/3 The Saturday Led Primary Series will take approximately 90 min, followed by an optional 30 min Intro to Pranayama class.
LED Half PRIMARY SERIES
A shorter version of Led Primary Series, students will be led through the Primary Series up to Navasana - approximately half of the seated postures. This is a great opportunity to try out the Ashtanga practice. Appropriate for those with some experience with vinyasa style yoga. LEVEL 2
INTRO TO ASHTANGA
If you are new to Ashtanga we highly recommend this course! It is a month long, 3 day a week introduction to Ashtanga yoga. Twice a week you will be working one-on-one with a teacher in the Mysore class and once a week you will attend a led class. By learning this way, you’ll quickly become comfortable with the Mysore style learning format and you’ll see how effective the method can be in helping you create a personal practice. This is a serious, fun, and safe environment for you to start your practice of Ashtanga yoga.
Mysore is a self-practice where students practice the Ashtanga series at their own pace with a teacher assisting each student individually. This course will prepare you to participate in our ongoing Mysore classes. During the month students will learn to memorize the sequence of postures that make up the foundation of the introductory series. We are able to give one-on-one attention to our new students and gradually introduce them to Ashtanga yoga in a way that is right for each individual. Students move through the series at their own pace allowing the body to open naturally and only working new postures when physically and emotionally ready. New courses begin the 1st Tuesday of each month and are limited to three new students per month. ALL LEVELS Email to signup >
