    Mysore - Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays 6am-8am

    Teaching in the tradition of Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois, Mysore style is the traditional method of practicing Ashtanga Yoga.  Students practice independently, according to the Ashtanga sequence, under the guidance of a teacher.  Students receive the support, adjustments and level of challenge that encourages the development of their individual practice.

    Can beginners practice Mysore style?

    Yes.  Rooted in parampara, the direct transmission of knowledge from the teacher to student, this system allows each student to practice at their pace and level, while benefiting from individual adjustments and support from the teacher. Delve deeper into your practice whether you are beginning or experienced. All levels welcome.

    Women Only Qoya - Thursdays 7pm-8:30pm & Sundays 10am-11:30am 
    Qoya is based on the idea that through movement we remember our essence is wise, wild and free. Wise, Wild and Free also refer to the types of movement we experience during a Qoya Class. WISE from the wisdom of yoga; WILD from the creative expression of dance; and FREE to enjoy being in our bodies through sensual movement.  In Qoya, we focus less on how it looks and more on how it feels. You can’t do Qoya wrong and you know you are doing it right when it feels good. Join a class and experience the freedom of being fully present to your body. The class is for women only and no yoga or dance experience is necessary. To learn more about Qoya visit: www.Qoya.love
