Mysore 

A traditional method of teaching Ashtanga Yoga that unfolds the series to each practitioner on an individual basis.

Mysore is a city in the South of India where Ashtanga Yoga came from. 
Ashtanga yoga involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of posture, a process producing intense internal heat and a profuse, purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind.

In Mysore Class, the student is taught a sequence of postures through one-on-one instruction. The correct movements, breathing, and other aspects of the practice are learned gradually, in a step-by-step process accessible to anyone. This method allows each student time to practice and memorize what they have learned before adding more. Students are able to practice independently and at their own pace while surrounded by the energy and inspiration of other students in the room. The teacher is able to work with each student individually. At initially, students may require more attention, but as they become proficient in their practice, they are allowed more independence, receiving adjustments and assistance only when required.

Hatha Yoga


Hatha yoga refers to a set of postures designed to align the entire body. The postures are also designed to open the many channels of the body so that energy can flow freely.  Hatha is translated as ha meaning “sun” and tha meaning “moon.” Hatha yoga is a path toward creating balance and uniting opposites. In our physical bodies we develop a balance of strength and flexibility.  Hatha yoga is a powerful tool for self-transformation as we move with attention to our breath while holding postures for several seconds and breathing into each posture as we hold the posture.  Classes are 60 min.

Yin


Yin is a slower-paced yoga class with huge benefits.  In this class, we hold poses for longer periods of time (up to five minutes) using bolsters and other props for support as we ease into each posture.  By holding these postures, and breathing into these postures, we are able to gain flexibility and improve blood flow to our joints and connective tissue.  Deepen your practice and improve flexibility with Yin.  Classes are 75 min.
