Ashtanga Basics introduces students to roughly half of the Primary Series postures, focusing on the form and integrity in asana, breath, and posture transitions.
 
This class offers both a comfortable introduction for students new to the practice, as well as an opportunity for regular Ashtanga students to focus on details.
Students will be led through the entire Primary Series, with emphasis on refinement of postures and breath. This class will explore deeper elements of the Primary Series, including bandhas, drishti and ujayi pranayama.
Mysore Ashtanga is a invigorating, meditative and challenging Vinyasa flow series with emphasis on refinement of postures and moving with the breath.
 
This yoga tradition includes an exploration of bandhas (energy locks), drishti (focused attention) and ujayi pranayama (a breathing technique to lengthen the breath).

In the Mysore tradition of Ashtanga students go through the Primary or 2nd Series, based on their own memory of the sequence while receiving adjustments from the teacher. Students new to the practice are welcome to attend and given necessary introductory support to develop the practice.

In India it is customary to kneel and touch the threshold of a temple or sacred place before entering as sign of respect and reverence. Our early morning Ashtanga practice mirrors this tradition by seeking communion with the divine and giving thanks before we enter our day.
