Mysore style Ashtanga yoga

"Yoga is about tradition - addition of energy, strength and beauty to body, mind and soul"

The Mysore style of yoga asana practice is a particular way of teaching yoga within the Ashtanga Yoga tradition as taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in the southern Indian city of Mysore. There are some differences in this method from the usual modern way in which yoga is taught. The class is not "led" as a whole but rather all instruction is one-on-one within the group class setting. Students practice their own portion of the Ashtanga sequence of asanas at their own pace. The teacher assists each student individually by giving physical adjustments & verbal instruction. In Mysore style students learn the fixed order of asanas combining movement with Vinyasa. This yoga method is intended to be practiced daily. Traditionally, practice takes place every day except for Sunday and full & new moon days which occurs twice a month.
