mysore classes

Mysore - all levels:  This class is the traditional way of learning and practicing Ashtanga yoga where you develop an independent practice with the support and guidance from a teacher.  The teacher teaches each student individually through verbal cues and hands on adjustments in a group setting.  This class is for everyone; from complete beginners to advanced practitioners and for people of all ages from 12 and up.  Beginners and new to Ashtanga students are encouraged to take our Introduction to Ashtanga Course, however if you have attended our guided classes and would like to drop-in to the Mysore classes we can help you establish a practice on which to build.  More info >
