Mysore Style

Mysore Style is a traditional transmission practice welcoming beginners and experienced students, practicing side by side at their individual pace, while being supervised and adjusted by the teacher. The teacher assists each student individually by giving physical adjustments and verbal instructions while observing the practice. New postures are gradually taught to the student as strength, skill, commitment and humility evolve.

 

This is the most powerful approach to learning and understanding the practice.

As a result, the class is not run as a whole, but all instructions are one-to-one in the practice room.

 

The student can easily memorize the sequence both confidently and comfortably, ultimately developing the skills necessary to move through practice, establishing autonomy, stability and calm.

 

Students learn to take responsibility for their yoga practice, which becomes an integral part of themselves. This method enables students to learn some of the most advanced postures in a safe and confident mode.

 

Engaging in a regular practice of this system, and following the method, leads the practitioner to the opportunity of truly deepening 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 beyond.

 

Mysore is a gift you won't find in any other teacher-student transmission method, except in private classes.

 

At AYL, Mysore classes are given for Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga (primary, secondary and advanced series), Vinyasa Krama Yoga (we build progressive sequences that are tailored to each individual) and Pranayama (developing breath awareness).

Before starting Yoga Style Mysore classes, the student discusses his/her goal or area of improvement with us. From there a personalized sequence is given to the student for practice. Students practice individually at their own pace while being guided by the teacher.

 

Mysore style classes give practitioners of all levels the freedom to play to their strengths and work on their weaknesses. Everyone's body is different. According to each person's natural predispositions, age and experience.

“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”
