Ashtanga Yoga Mysore style classes Sunday to Friday from 07:00 to 09:00 am. The Yoga Shala is an open to everybody concept who wishes to practice Ashtanga Yoga. If you are familiar with Ashtanga Yoga and Mysore style teachings, you can simply drop in between 07:00 and 07:30 am. Pls make sure to finish your practice by 09:00 am incl shavasana. I offer introduction classes for students new to Ashtanga Yoga. Pls allow for a minimum participation of four days and enquire via email.

ASHTANGA YOGA is characterized by a focus on vinyasa, or a dynamic connecting posture, that creates a flow between the more static traditional yoga postures. Vinyasa translates as linking and the system also implies the linking of the movement to the breath. Essentially the breath dictates the movement and the length of time held in the postures. Attention is also placed on the journey between the postures not just the postures themselves. The purpose of vinyasa is to create heat in the body, which leads to purification of the body through increased circulation and sweating.
The whole practice is defined by six specific series of postures, each series always done in the same order, combined with specific breathing (Ujjayi). Each sequence typically begins with the sun salutations followed by a set of standing poses. This is referred to as the “opening sequence”. The student then moves to either the Primary, Intermediate, Advanced A, B, C, or D, depending on his or her skill level, followed by back bends and finally closes the series with a set of inverted postures, referred to as the “finishing sequence”.

MYSORE STYLE (supervised self practice) refers to the traditional way as taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. Class is taught within a group setting where each student moves through the practice at his or her own pace and level and personal adjustments and teaching is given according to the individual needs.

We are not a retreat, than a Yoga Shala dedicated to teach traditional Ashtanga Yoga. However, there are two lovely apartments available for rent at the villa where the Yoga Shala is located. Accommodation links and recommendations can be found on our website and we are happy to help you with your travel arrangements. And of course, there is always space to meet like-minded people and come together.

See you on the mat!
