NEWS & UPDATES FROM CATHY
Mysore-style is the traditional way to learn Ashtanga Yoga. (As taught in Mysore, India, where the practice originated).
Mysore classes allow for students to develop their own self practice, learning and memorising the sequence bit by bit. It is the safest, most effective method of learning ashtanga yoga.
The introduction to Mysore workshop is aimed at complete beginners to ashtanga as well as students who have experience of led classes but would like to transition to morning self-practice. The next workshop will take place on Saturday, 30th July at Balance.
Why you shouldn’t feel nervous about starting mysore
Many people feel intimidated by the idea of mysore self practice classes in case they don’t remember how to do the sequence or they fear they won’t be good enough.
But there’s no need to worry – mysore classes are mixed level classes suitable for beginners right through to advanced students.
What you’ll learn in the workshop
- Background to the the ashtanga system
- Explanation on how the ashtanga sequence works and how it is designed to be learnt
- Fundamental techniques used throughout the ashtanga sequence
- Sun salutations and finishing postures so you have the essentials of practice to build on
By the end of the workshop you will have a suitable sequence from which to start your own self practice and have the confidence to give Mysore classes a try!
- £35 includes one week of mysore classes ( please pay the extra £10 seperately on the day of the workshop)

“The full ashtanga system practiced with devotion leads to freedom within one’s heart.”
A dynamic, physically challenging practice, following a set sequence of postures. Deep steady breathing synchronised with the postures creates a purifying internal heat, which burns away toxins, resulting in a strong, light body and a calm mind. With dedicated practice over a period of time comes the potential to transform your life, not just physically, but mentally, emotionally and spiritually too.
