Mysore-style is the traditional way in which the practice of Ashtanga Yoga is taught in the city of Mysore, India. A set sequence of yoga postures is memorised by the student and each student moves through the sequence at their own pace. Individual instruction is given by the teacher as and when needed. A beginner will naturally be given more instruction than an advanced practitioner but both practise in the same class.
The best way to learn ashtanga yoga from the beginning is in a Mysore Style class. Because there is no need to “keep up” with the other students in the class it can be a much safer and less stressful way to learn. You will be taught from the very beginning and the teacher won’t move on until he/she is sure that you have fully understood. Each student moves through the yoga practice at his or her own pace while the teacher keeps a watchful eye, instructing, correcting and encouraging as needed. It must be noted that the misconception that Mysore Style classes are only for students who have already established a regular yoga practice could not be further from the truth. On the contrary, the setting allows the student and teacher to work together at a much more personal level, which is ideal for beginners. So there is absolutely no need to be intimidated.
If you forget the series you will be gently reminded what comes next and slowly you will begin to remember until the sequence becomes so natural that the yoga practice becomes like a moving meditation.
You don't have to arrive at the beginning of the class but you should arrive no later than an hour before the end of the class.
