CLASSES

Our Approach

 

No one individual learns the exact same as another. So, we offer a variety of interconnected learning opportunities to take each student on their yoga journey and help them experience “Now”.

Morning “Mysore-style” Open Practice

Start the day by centering your Mind, Body and Spirit

This class is open to everyone from beginners who have never taken a yoga class to teachers who want to deepen their practice and further their knowledge and experience of yoga.

Mysore-style is based on a traditional method practiced in Mysore, India where a student practices at his or her own pace. The teacher’s role is to act as the eyes for the students, to help deepen understanding of poses through instruction and adjustments and to teach variations and new poses when appropriate. In our sessions, most students follow the Ashtanga Vinyasa sequences, are able to ask questions and, when necessary, use props or do restorative poses; whatever is required to help them gain all they can from their practice of yoga that day.

Highlights: 
Individualized – Your own practice at your own pace
Flexible Timing – Begin and end your practice at any time during the session

Levels: All levels
