Ashtanga + Mysore

Ashtanga Yoga is a vigorous, traditional style of yoga developed in Mysore, India.  It is a set sequence of postures designed to purify both body (through producing inner heat with powerful breathing) and mind (through focusing on a visual point).


Ashtanga Primary 2
Half Primary 1
Ashtanga Intro

Students are guided through the set sequence of postures by the teacher who counts each breath in traditional Sanskrit.  It is recommended that Beginners start in Ashtanga Intro or Half Primary Series.

Rock-It Ashtanga 2

This Advanced class moves through poses of the Primary Series, and introduces the fun and challenging arm balancing and other poses from 2nd Series.  Not recommended for Beginners.


Named after the city in India where Ashtanga yoga was developed and is a class in which the set Ashtanga sequence of yoga postures is practiced.  Students are individually taught the sequence posture-by-posture, and then continue to practice on their own with guidance from the teacher and her assistants.

Beginners are very welcome as individual instruction and guidance is given. If you have yoga experience but have never practiced traditional Ashtanga yoga, please come to a few Beginner classes.


Please  note there are no classes on New and Full Moon days.  See below for dates.





– Come to the Mysore Beginner class (even if you have yoga experience – you are learning a new sequence and practice style) at the designated time.
