What is Mysore?

The Ashtanga yoga method was originally taught in Mysore, southern India by the late yoga master, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois.  Since the first Ashtanga classes were taught in Mysore, this style of teaching is named after the city and is really just short for “Mysore Style Ashtanga.”

Ashtanga yoga is a complete yoga system whose posture component is grounded in a physical meditative practice of linking breathing with movement.  Ashtanga yoga is learned in what’s called a “Mysore” class.  In this style of class the student develops an individualized yoga practice that is guided and supported by a qualified teacher who has been trained in and actively practices the Ashtanga method.  This teacher/student relationship is unique to our culture- over time it teaches structure and develops trust and commitment.  You learn how to be a humble student, which creates more openness to learning about Self.  A Mysore practice develops slowly over time.  The Mysore class is not structured like a typical yoga class; it’s more like receiving a private lesson in a group setting.  You practice amidst other like-minded students who are working at their own level and pace.
