Ashtanga Mysore Yoga
Dynamic, Challenging, Centering, Meditative, All People
The Primary Series of Ashtanga Mysore Yoga is specifically designed to make the body healthy: strong, steady, flexible and free of disease. It is a method. Students practice individually in a group setting under the guidance of a teacher and learn a set sequence of postures. New postures are added to the sequence a few at a time. The postures are joined by movements linked with breath, called vinyasa.
No props are used. The teacher helps students modify the poses in a way that is right for them and provides students many hands-on adjustments. The room is kept at a near-normal indoor temperature because the body will create its own heat to oxidize the blood and carry that oxygen to the organs of the body.
With practice and time, a student’s emphasis shifts away from the postures and vinyasa movements to include smooth breathing, gazing points and energy locks; doing all of these simultaneously requires deep concentration. Students are drawn inward by this. Eventually the practice becomes a moving meditation that incorporates all eight limbs of yoga.
A meditative class that includes a balanced combination of sustained asanas (poses) and poses that flow in a mindful progression from one to another. Attention to basic alignment and observing breath and body are an integral part of class. Use postures, breathing techniques, and mindfulness to cultivate balance and create a sense of well being while increasing strength and flexibility.
Gently flow through a thoughtful sequence of both classic and restorative yoga poses. Rejuvenate with this calming class and leave with a feeling of balance and ease.
