Traditional Ashtanga Yoga Classes
The traditional method of learning Ashtanga Yoga. Students are instructed on an individual basis to learn and maintain practicing the traditional sequences of Ashtanga Yoga over time with hands on adjustments, personalized guidance from the teacher, and attention to special needs. This is NOT a led class.
This is a great way for beginners to establish a practice. No previous knowledge of the Ashtanga system is required to establish a practice. It is designed for students who are able to commit to attending at least two days a week over a long period of time. Otherwise, I would recommend taking led classes. For visitors who are here for a short period of time, I recommend taking led classes. Any class on the schedule other than Mysore and Self Practice are led classes. There are a wide variety to choose from especially in the Summer. For visiting Ashtangis who already have an established practice, you are welcome to join us for practice.
