Mysore Self Practice is the traditional way of learning the Ashtanga Yoga method. Under the guidance of the teacher each student gradually learns and memorizes the set sequence of postures at his or her own pace. Instead of leading the class, the teacher gives each student individual instruction and hands-on adjustments. It’s almost like a private lesson but with the benefit of the group energy. This method allows for the student to practice silently, with increased inner awareness, and so slowly, over time, begin experiencing the moving meditation that is Ashtanga Yoga. Self-practice classes always have students of mixed levels and abilities practicing side by side. There are two start times 6pm or 6.30pm depending on your schedule and the duration of your practice. Initially, to learn the system, you will need to allow approx. 45 mins for a class, building up to about 1 and ½ to 2 hours once a full series of postures is being practiced. The Mysore self-practice class is a silent class, so if you come at the 6.30pm start time, please enter the room quietly.
You may wish to commit to practicing Mysore Style twice weekly at The Wellington Centre. Therefore there is an option to pay in advance for a block of 6 or 12 classes or pay monthly to reduce the cost per class
Suitable for: Students of ALL levels who are familiar with the Ashtanga Yoga method or enthusiastic beginners who are committed to practicing what they have learned in the Beginners led class. Visiting students with an existing practice are welcome.
