The Mysore method allows for 1-on-1 instruction and more specific guidance from the teacher.There is no prior knowledge or experience required to attend this class. The teacher(s) will assist each student as necessary, and will work individually with the students, as they move at their own pace through a set series of postures.
In Mysore class you show up anytime during the posted hours and will be taught the Ashtanga sequence one posture at a time (practice starts at around 20 minutes). As you repeat the postures daily, you gradually increase your knowledge and create an independent, personal practice. New students are required to commit to a consistent Mysore practice of at least 3x per week.
Students interested to join Mysore are asked to email Dana at firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
