Introduction to Ashtanga Yoga Workshop

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 Ashtanga Yoga 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.

Summer 2017 Introductory Workshop will be from 10:30AM to 11:30AM on the following dates.  Click on the specific date to register.
