New to Ashtanga Yoga and/or Mysore Style classes? This is your opportunity to learn what it's all about and begin to build your own self-paced Ashtanga practice in a safe, supportive group setting.
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. 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.
Beginning September 9th, students will meet each Sunday from 11:30am - 1:30pm for 4 weeks. We'll begin each Sunday Session with a talk on some aspect of the Ashtanga practice (breath, vinyasa, etc), and then begin to learn the sequence of postures that make up the foundation of the introductory series. We will gradually introduce you 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.
This course includes an unlimited pass to all classes on the AYS Raleigh Schedule September 9th through October 7th. Students are encouraged to attend these classes at least twice a week to reinforce what we will learn on Sundays, and to create a healthy habit of practicing yoga consistently.
