Description
Mysore is an important Ashtanga tradition of personal teaching that helps to deepen one's practice with trust and dedication. This style of practice is like receiving a private class in a group setting with all levels of students practicing the memorized sequence at their own pace, but at the same time. Students new to Mysore style will receive help from the teacher as they memorize the sequence. It is a very common misconception that you need to be a physically advanced Ashtanga practitioner to practice Mysore style. However, the teacher assists students at every level by giving hands on guidance, attention, and instruction specific to student needs.
