Ashtanga Yoga

What is Ashtanga Yoga Mysore Style?

Ashtanga 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 postures, 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 the traditional way Ashtanga Yoga has been taught in the town of Mysore by the gurus Sri T. Krishnamacharya, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and now Sharath Jois. In this style, each student receives individual attention within a group setting. You are taught the breathing technique and postures at a pace that is suitable for each individual student. It is an exhilarating process of exploring and playing with your boundaries while similarly accepting where you are.
