Mysore Ashtanga Yoga is the traditional method of learning the Ashtanga Yoga system as taught by R.Sharath Jois in Mysore, India. Each student works at their own pace during the class with the teacher on hand to provide assistance and adjustment when required. The student is required to commit the practice to memory one posture at a time, with new postures being added when the student is ready. The fundamentals of the practice are the Tristana – Breath, Asana and Drishti.
The class is suitable for all levels - even complete beginners - as the students are taught individually whilst in a group setting. The practice encourages students to connect with their breath and turn their focus inward so it becomes a moving meditation.
What Mysore Ashtanga Yoga?
Why should I do Mysore Ashtanga Yoga?
Mysore style Ashtanga Yoga is the safest and most beneficial way to practice yoga.
All students are taught individually within a group environment so you’ll benefit from one to one instruction, and learn at a pace that suits you. That means no more struggling to keep up with the rest of the class!
Because you’re practicing at your own pace you’ll be able to focus on your breath and your practice will take on a meditative quality never before experienced!
If you’ve never practiced yoga before you’ll receive a personalised one to one introduction for the price of a regular group class (approx. 45 mins).
If you have an established practice you’ll grow your practice under guidance of an experienced KPJAYI Level 2 teacher.
You’ll benefit from a community of friendly like-minded practitioners who will help keep you motivated.

Mysore Ashtanga Yoga is a great way to start your yoga journey. All newcomers learn a very straightforward, flowing sequence known as surya namaskar or the sun salute followed by some seated, breathing exercises and a relaxation. Your first practice will be between 30 and 45 minutes depending on how much time you have; and from then it will grow at a pace to suit you.
