Ashtanga Mysore Style in Port Elizabeth

Ashtanga vinyasa yoga is a specialised system popularised by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India. This system focuses on unifying movement with the breath and is comprised of six series of asana, varying in difficulty, that aim to cleanse and purify the body by releasing toxins as well as strengthening the muscles and organs of the body.

Mysore style is one of the greatest teaching methods available. The name is derived from the method that was used by Krishnamarchya and Sri. K Pattabhi Jois and continues to be used by his grandson, R.Sharath Jois when teaching Ashtanga Yoga in Mysore, India. In this style each student receives individual attention within a group setting. You are taught the breathing technique and a small portion of postures which we build on over time, step-by-step, at a pace that is suitable for each individual. It is an exhilarating process of exploring and playing with your boundaries while similarly accepting where you are.
