CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

 
In ashtanga yoga, the asana practice (physical postures) is done 5-6 days a week. Students take rest one day a week plus moon days. The daily repetition of asanas is important to get the full benefits of the practice. The more you do it, the easier it becomes.



Self-practice classes: Students practise the postures they’ve learnt at their own speed but in a group setting. The teacher gives individual guidance and physical adjustments, gradually moving them through the asana series at a suitable pace. This is the traditional way that ashtanga yoga is taught at KPJAYI in Mysore, India – which is why these classes are often called “Mysore-style”.



Led classes: The teacher guides all students through the asana series together, at the same pace. The focus is on the vinyasas (synchronised breath and movement) to help students understand the correct breathing and movement in and out of each posture. At KPJAYI, led classes are taught twice a week using the traditional Sanskrit vinyasa count. 

Beginners courses: These cover the basics of the practice, including the breathing technique and the initial asana series as taught in Mysore. Students are encouraged to practise between classes so that they can enjoy the full benefit of the course and build up a lifelong yoga practice.

PREPARING FOR CLASS

  • Please arrive 10-15 minutes early for classes to allow for registration and setting up.
  • Always practice on an empty stomach. It’s best not to eat 3-4 hours before class.
  • During practice, avoid drinking water – it will reduce the heat you’re trying to build up.
  • Try not to eat or drink anything for 20 minutes after practice.
  • The traditional ashtanga method does not include props. Please avoid using blocks or belts.
  • Please clean your yoga mat and rug (if you use one) regularly.
