Our introductory workshops provide a supportive and inclusive environment to begin your Ashtanga Yoga journey or revisit the foundations of the practice.
During the Introduction to Mysore workshop we lay the groundwork for the Mysore classes in a manner that is available to all. We research the subtleties of free breath and movement through Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations) and some fundamental postures.
This workshop will prepare you to join the Mysore Ashtanga Yoga classes at Ashtanga Yoga Worldwide. In fact, this introductory workshop includes bonus Mysore classes on the week following the workshop so that potential students can get a real and integrated experience of what it is like to practice Mysore style.
All levels are welcome to attend this workshop.
The next Introduction to Mysore workshops are on the following Sundays from 10-11:30am: August 19th, September 2nd, September 16th, and October 7th. Pre-registration is required. Click here to register.
When practiced with deep awareness and intention, Surya Namaskar contains all the benefits of yoga. It is the basis for the entire Ashtanga yoga practice. In this workshop we will explore the foundational techniques of the vinyasa system, integrating breath, bandhas, drishti, and movement. By breaking down all the poses of Surya Namaskar, with emphasis on technique and strength building, we begin to see this dynamic sequence of poses in a fresh and exciting way. This workshop is on Saturday, September 22nd from 1:30-3:30pm. Pre-registration is required. Click here to register.
