Styles

ASHTANGA MYSORE

Mysore style is traditional Ashtanga yoga, taught in India by the late Sri K Pattabhi Jois. It is a unique class where you will practice a set sequence of postures at your own pace while a teacher gives you individual guidance and adjustments. As you progress through the series you will receive new postures. For all levels from beginners to advanced. It’s a wonderful way to learn a meditative personal practice.

ASHTANGA COUNTED

Counted Primary Series taught in the traditional format where the teacher calls out the posture names and counts the breaths to encourage a seamless meditative flow. The class is steady paced with minimal alignment instructions given, so some familiarity with the Primary Series is recommended. This is a great compliment to your Mysore practice.

MYSORE BEGINNERS

This is an introduction to the traditional method of Ashtanga yoga. You will be introduced to key concepts of Tristana and the beginning sequence of the Primary Series. This will slowly ease you into the Mysore style. Suitable for students of all levels, complete beginners or more advanced practitioners wanting to learn about the fundamentals of Ashtanga Yoga.

YIN YOGA & MEDITATION

This class draws on knowledge from Indian Hatha poses, Chinese medicine theory, as well as of Buddhist mindfulness meditation to work on balancing the mind and body. Holding shapes for long periods of time that stress the connective tissues and redirect energy to vital organs. Encouraging surrender, softening and release. Yin yoga complements a fast and energetic Ashtanga yoga or other Yang styles.

BOOK CLUB MEDITATION

This will open up a discussion and end on a group meditation practice. Gain qualities of focus, calmness, clarity, and insight for your creative processes in your daily lives. These sessions are open to all, no previous experience necessary. Donation (R20)

JIVAMUKTI OPEN
