Vinyasa ( translates to “flowing with breath”) is a dynamic style of Hatha yoga which joins physical postures, or asanas, with inhales and exhales, creating a steady internal rhythm for the practice. Our Flow classes are designed to cultivate heat in the body with creative sequences involving sun salutations, standing and seated postures, back bending, arm balancing, and a strong focus on the power of breath awareness. Flow yoga classes tend to be more vigorous and aerobic, and classes can have a variety of music and themes.
This class is special for those students with little or no experience with the practice, and who want to start. In them we typically cover the Sun Salutations and, depending on the group, we begin to explore the initial standing postures sequence, offering an accessible approach for the beginner.
First Guided Serie known as “Yoga Chikitsa”
It is recommended to practice the Ashtanga Guided Sequence once a week, to learn the proper pace and breath count. In our Shala we offer a multilevel guided class every Friday, Saturday and Sunday. For both new and experienced students, led class is an important compliment to a regular Mysore practice. It’s an opportunity to ensure that each vinyasa is being learned and practiced correctly. Furthermore, surrendering to the teacher’s count and pacing, is an opportunity to increase both our internal and external strength, and our relationship with the traditional lineage. Students will be guided through the poses based on their familiarity and proficiency in the practice. The teacher may ask some students to stop at a certain point and just observe.
Self-assisted practice format in which the student practices a sequence appropriate to their experience and ability. The teacher is in the room offering instruction and assistance when necessary. The Mysore environment is ideal for practicing Ashtanga yoga, since it allows a gradual learning of the sequence offering a personalization depending on the reality of each individual. It is the closest thing to a private session in a group setting. The arrival to Mysore classes is flexible. You can join the class at any time up to 1 hour before the closing of the room. In this sense, be sure to plan your arrival time based on the duration of your practice.Mysore welcomes students with and without experience. To ensure that we can offer you the necessary help.
