Ashtanga Yoga is a traditional, dynamic form of yoga. While many of the asanas (postures) are the same as those found in other forms of yoga, in Ashtanga, they are joined together through vinyasa or specific steps in which breath and movement are synchronized. As a result the asanas are practiced in a fluid sequence, resulting in increased internal heat and purifying sweat, which in turn help to detoxify the body. Other benefits include a strong body, peaceful mind and a calm soul.
Mysore is the traditional self practice from of Ashtanga Yoga. During a mysore class, each student practices in his or her own breath rhythm. This enables the student to decide the tempo and intensity of the yoga practice. Students receive one-on-one asistance in the form of adjustments and advice from the teacher–just like a private lesson. Through mysore practice, a student is able to develop a self-practice, which they can then practice on their own at home. Mysore is perfect for both beginners and those with more yoga experience.
