2) mysore classes

This video was created from a Mysore class with certified Ashtanga teacher, David Garrigues assisted by our director, Shelley Enlow.

Mysore 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.  We request beginners or new to Ashtanga students attend one of our Introduction to Ashtanga workshops prior to attending the Mysore classes, 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.  Learn more about the Mysore Class here.  View the schedule here.


3) guided classes

Our guided classes are a good place to try dropping into a class at AYS.  Guided classes help introduce and reinforce the vinyasa (the linking of breath and postures) of Ashtanga yoga.  In these classes the vinyasas are counted out loud and all students follow along together accordingly.  Each guided class progresses in level based on the skill level needed to participate safely.  If you are new to yoga we recommend the Ashtanga Basic class.  If you have previous yoga experience feel free to try any of our guided classes.  View the schedule here.  View class descriptions here.

4) private instruction

You can begin comfortably at our studio with one-on-one instruction.  Private lessons are scheduled M - F daytime hours.
