Origin of Mysore style


The name “Mysore Style” is popular because western yogis learned Ashtanga Yoga in Mysore, India.

Originally traditional Indian pedagogy is a self-paced learning system that is implemented well for Ashtanga Yoga.

It means the students learn from the teacher and practice individually in a group at their own pace with silence. The teacher does not lead the practice but simply observes the practitioners and helps adjust asana (postures) were necessary – one person at a time.

This method is highly effective – because it promotes independence, self-awareness and mindfulness. Which lies at the heart of Ashtanga Yoga.

Mysore Style class is in the window of 2 hours. You come, open your mat and start your practice and when you are done – you can leave. Some people take 1-hour of practice and others 90 mins – depends on how far you are in your Ashtanga practice.

Mysore Style classes typically last between one and a half and two hours. The full series often appears daunting at the beginning, but with time the asanas come almost automatically, enabling us to deepen our focus on the breath. The series is always the same, so once known there is no need to think, hence the practice can have a wonderful sensation of flow and becomes a powerful dynamic meditation. Every part of the body is stretched and energized, allowing our vital energy to flow freely.

Besides improved flexibility and energy, the most consistent effect of Mysore style practice is an abundant sensation of well-being. Led Ashtanga sessions aim to prepare us for Mysore practice. We recommend beginning Mysore style practice if you are competent in at least half of the asanas in the primary series.
