Introduction to Mysore Ashtanga

Curious about Mysore style Ashtanga Yoga classes but feeling overwhelmed and/or intimidated to give it a try? We’ve developed a course designed specifically for absolute beginner or those making a transition from other yoga disciplines to Ashtanga.
During this course you will learn to memorize and safely practice the sequence of postures that make up the foundation of the Primary Series, as well as the yoga philosophy that sets the foundation of a healthy physical practice. By learning this way, you’ll quickly become comfortable with the Mysore style format to continue your practice in our regularly scheduled Mysore classes.
Two weeks of unlimited Mysore classes after finished the course is included in the cost.

Second Series

The Primary Series of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga begins the process of making the body pliable and strong, as well as purifying the internal organs and the nervous system. The Second Series, called Nadi Shodhana (subtle purification),  takes this process even deeper.  Nadi Shodhana has many effects on our physical body, but as it’s name indicates, the beauty of this sequence lies in its transformation of the subtle body. In this Complete Course on Second Series we will study the alignment of each posture from a both a subtle and anatomical perspective.


Second Series challenges the spine to be flexible, strong and steady through 3 main groups of postures: -back bending postures which require deep flexibility in the spine -leg behind the head postures which require deep external hip rotations supported by a strong spinal flexion. -Third, you will balance and articulate control and steadiness through your spine, shoulders, and nervous system in a series of arm balances and shoulder openers.
