What is Mysore Self Practice Yoga? 





In Mysore Self Practice Yoga, students learn a set of yoga poses in a fixed order, combining stretches with breathing, which builds body awareness. In this type of yoga, the controlled breath links movement to movement, pose to pose, adding a sense of flow to the practice.


Mysore Self Practice Yoga is the type of yoga where practitioners work at their own pace through the Ashtanga yoga series. They do so under the supervision of one or more teachers - ideally teachers who have been authorised by the Pattabhi Jois family back at the Mysore mothership.  

In a Mysore Self Practice Yoga class, each student will perform different sequences at different levels, according to their ability. The teacher will circulate the class, giving quiet instructions to each student, often using hands on assists to deepen the experience of the yoga poses.
