Aparna had been a regular yoga practitioner for the past 11+ years, but in the past 5 years, she has delved deeply into the expansive world that is Yoga - beyond just the physical practice. This shift is thanks to the wonderful teachers she has had thus far. Initially, she was into Yoga because of the physical challenges that it provided. Within a short period of time, she was reaping the mental benefits – Yoga has helped her become calmer, happier, and has given her a foundation of inner strength that she can continue to build upon. As she is on this journey, she is thrilled to share her experiences and knowledge of yoga via emphasis in breath, and humor.

She is a graduate of the 230 hour Hatha Vinyasa Yoga program from the Innerlight School of Yoga in Cary, NC under Susan Jackson. She has also studied Ashtanga under Stacy Ingham, and Sri M V Chidanand in Mysore, India. She is very thankful for all her past and present teachers who have provided her with knowledge and inspiration.

Brittany has been practicing yoga for more than 15 years, but came to her practice with new dedication in 2013 when she completed her teacher training. While she has spent much of her teaching focused on Hatha and Vinyasa practices, in 2015, she attended an Ashtanga yoga intensive in Mysore with M.V. Chidananda. This brought new inspiration to her own practice and to her teaching. Brittany continues to teach Hatha/Vinyasa styles of yoga in addition to teaching Ashtanga in the style that she learned from her teacher in Mysore. She likes to bring a playful humility to her classes, and approaches the Ashtanga primary series as an exploration. Her classes are a great fit for students new to Ashtanga interested in a challenge as well as those with established practices.

Introduction to Mysore Style Ashtanga

Introduction to Mysore Style Ashtanga

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 February 3rd, students will meet each Sunday from 12-2pm 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  February 3rd through March 2nd. 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.

Cost: $108
