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 Sunday 23rd July with Gem Maryan at PYM Finnieston.
