How do the classes work?


#f9f9f9Most traditional Ashtanga Yoga classes are taught ‘Mysore style’, where the teacher introduces each posture in the series to you one by one. As a beginner, you get a great deal of individual attention from the teacher, who guides you through each step of each posture. As you gain experience more of your practice becomes self-directed, doing as much of the series as you have been taught until the teacher feels you have established enough stability and ease to start the next posture in the series. Your daily practice will be longer or shorter depending on the number of postures the teacher has taught you.

The other, less frequent type of Ashtanga class is called ‘Led’, where students practice the same Ashtanga postures together as a group, with the teacher setting the overall pace and providing instruction for everyone. Led classes serve to remind students how to match each movement to their breath in each posture. In Led classes students stop at the same posture where they stop during their Mysore style practice, and then complete their practice with the traditional finishing postures on their own.
