“There are two types of teachers. Those who tell you what you want to hear and those who tell you what you don't want to hear”
— T. K. V. Desikachar
Transmission & Autonomy
Ashtanga Yoga in Mysore Style is a traditional method of practice that welcomes both beginners and advanced students, practicing side by side at their individual pace, while being supervised and adjusted by the teacher. New postures are sequentially taught to the student as strength, skill, commitment and humility evolve.
It is the most impactful approach in learning and understanding the practice.
Therefore, the class is not led as a whole, but all instruction is one-on-one in the practice room.
The student can easily memorize the sequence with both confidence and comfort, eventually developing the skills needed to move through the practice, establishing autonomy, stability and calm.
Students learn to take responsibility for their yoga practice which becomes an integral part of themselves. This method allows students to learn some of the most advanced postures in a safe and confident fashion.
Engaging in regular practice of this system and following the method leads the practitioner to the opportunity to truly deepen self-perception in an emotional, mental, physical and spiritual way. The Mysore Style practice is for those who wish to develop their potential not only on the yoga mat, but also beyond.
The Mysore is an invaluable gift , which you will not find in any other method of transmission from teacher to student, except in private lessons.
