Limited Capacity seats available

It was a long time before the first western students of Pattabhi Jois realized that the Sanskrit words he was saying through class were numbers! Ekam inhale, Dve exhale, Trini inhale … their teacher was counting their movements with breath. You see, that's not how they originally learned to practice. Because traditionally and still today, the series is taught individually by a teacher, with each pose allowed to be fully developed before being taught the next. We call this self-practice or the Mysore method. But there is enormous benefit for both mind and body by practicing the movements in a led counted style, emphasizing the vinyasa. The intention is to lead students toward a more balanced practice through a series they are already familiar with. And why this class is intended for students who have had exposure to the Ashtanga practice, though do not necessarily need to be proficient.
