Mysore Yoga Retreats around the world
Mysore: Mysore refers to a particular way of teaching and practicing Ashtanga Yoga. Mysore classes are not led by a teacher, but instead instruction is given individually within the class setting. Students practice their own portion of the Ashtanga sequence at their own pace, and the teacher assists each student with adjustments and instructions. In Ashtanga Yoga, postures are performed in sequential order. Each posture builds from the previous, and prepares for the next one. Beginning students have a shorter practice than more advanced ones. As their practice develops, additional postures are given to the students. The Mysore style teaches yoga according to each individual's ability, and accommodates all levels.
