    Mysore

    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.

But, what about the school personnel and parents who work with children on a daily basis. Take time to slow down the fast paced world we live in and focus on you.
