New Mysore Ashtanga Classes with Sara Intonato starting Monday, February 11 at 6am.
The Mysore Ashtanga classes will be held Monday - Thursday from 6-9am and a Led Primary Series class will be held on Friday from 6-7:30am. There are no Ashtanga classes on new and full moon days. The Ashtanga Yoga method is built around the ‘Mysore Style’ class, so
named because yoga was taught this way by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, in
Mysore, India, and continues to be taught this way in traditional
Ashtanga Yoga schools around the world. In Mysore Class, the student is
taught a sequence of postures through one-on-one instruction. The
correct movements, breathing, and other aspects of the practice are
learned gradually, in a step-by-step process accessible to anyone. This
method allows each student time to practice and memorize what they have
learned before adding more, encouraging commitment and accountability.
Students are able to practice independently and at their own pace while
surrounded by the energy and inspiration of other students in the room.
The teacher is able to work with each student individually, which allows
the practitioner to develop a deeply trusting relationship with their
teacher. This unique setting allows beginners to move slowly and
progress only when their body and mind are ready, as opposed to "keeping
pace" with a large group. It also provides committed practitioners with
a forum for learning advanced postures with the one-on-one guidance
required to do them safely and accurately. It is appropriate for all
levels of practitioners. There are no prerequisites, other than the
willingness to practice.
ABSOLUTE BEGINNER SERIES- Sessions beginning in March 2013

A new session will begin in March. The 8 week sessions starts Sunday, March 3 at 10:30AM and Tuesday, March 12 at 6:00PM. The cost per 8 week session is $144.00.
