Hatha: Hatha is a branch of yoga which concentrates on physical health and mental well-being. In this style we focus on alignment while using bodily postures (asana), breathing techniques (pranayama), and meditation (dyana) to work toward a healthy body and a peaceful mind. Poses may be held a little longer to focus on proper alignment. Level: Intermediate, All
Ashtanga Primary Series: A liberating and flowing series of classic Yoga poses, linked one to another by connective movements and breath control. Special emphasis is on Ujjayi Pranayama, an ancient and powerful breathing technique, and on the muscular contractions Uddiyana Bandha (strengthening and cleansing the entire abdomen) and Mulabandha (strengthening and toning the pelvic floor). This practice is a self-care system designed to rejuvenate, strengthen and cleanse the entire body. The lineage of Ashtanga yoga reaches back thousands of years to the Sanskrit yoga sutras of Patanjala. Level Intermediate, All

Mysore classes are the mode of instruction for Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. They are modeled after the classes originally taught by Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, South India from the early 1970’s to the turn of the century. These were not guided classes. Jois would instruct his students individually, teaching them unique sequences of breath, posture and movement. He would then have his students practice those sequences side by side, in silence, while he observed and adjusted. Mysore classes are still taught in India today and are a mainstay in the global Ashtanga community.
Mysore style is based on building a relationship with a teacher(s). The student will learn the system at his or her own pace with guidance and support. Rather than being led through the sequence, you will be assisted in memorizing the poses, cultivating a consistent practice, and practicing independently. New poses will be added gradually. Your class time will vary depending on your pace and the number of postures you have been taught to practice. The studio is open for two hours for practice but it is not necessary to stay for the entire scheduled Mysore class. You arrive, anytime within scheduled Mysore class, giving yourself at least 45 mins to practice. It is suggested you stop once you are unable to complete a posture and from there you do assigned finishing postures, rest and then you are finished practicing.
All experience levels practice together, creating a quiet and harmonious flow. Allowing the teacher to supervise and assist each student when and where its appropriate. Hallmarks of this style of teaching include individualized instruction, adjustments and silent focus on your breathing. Please note this is a premium class and cost is $5 on top of a regular class punch.
