Mysore Style Ashtanga Vinyasa - All series welcome

Ashtanga Mysore Style  Class time: Up to 2 hours.

Accelerated learning for all levels!This is a self exploration of the Ashtanga practices with a teacher present for assistance and guidance. Perfect for those new to ashtanga as well as those more familiar with the practice. This REALLY is the way that BEGINNERS were traditionally taught Ashtanga and it makes sense...In silence(non guided) you will practice the Ashtanga series. You may start at the beginning time of the class or anytime before about 8:15am  for classes beginning at 7:45am . There is no "late" to class as everyone moves at their own pace. Do allow enough time to get a thorough practice, even if not a complete series.Newcomers to Ashtanga are certainly welcome, however you will benefit most if you commit to a full month of Mysore 2+ times per week. Drop-ins are for students with some Ashtanga experienc-, even just a bit will be fine.

Though most of you will be moving through First Series, Second Series and above practicioners are also welcome. You will experience a deeper exploration of the Ashtanga practice through very individualized and specific assists from a highly trained Ashtanga instructor. You are not expected to go through the series in its entirety. The instructor will advise you of next postures, of modifications, and also where to stop. Injuries will be considered and modified for. The idea is to have a deep understanding of each posture as it relates to your body and its capacities and limitations before you move to the next posture-- similar to the color belt systems in Martial Arts.The reason the learning process is so accelerated in a Mysore practice is that it meets you where you are--maybe you want to work more slowly thru the Marichyasana section of the series-- there's that darn bind you cannot seem to get. Maybe spend more time in backbends or finishing choose.  Your five breaths duration is unique, so you can slow it down, speed it up.. whatever supports connection for you in your practice. Perhaps you just want to learn the series by memory- this will do it!We show 3 flames here, but it could be 2 or 5...its up to you. Its your practice!

Here are some things to know when attending Mysore classes at Red Pearl:

Start time is flexible--Come as early as the start time or any time after that (generally within 30 or so min so you fit in a good practice).Please bring a dry, clean hand towel to be used for your own personal assists by the instructor. You'll be sweaty. 

 Drop in fee is $20. or use your class card. 

No discounts on drop-in class for Mysore.

Let the instructor know of any injuries or conditions- no matter how insignificant you think they might be.
