If you are completely new to Ashtanga yoga, it may be appropriate to start by attending a beginners’ course or an introductory session, so that you will know how this style of yoga is practiced. (We will publish the schedule when it is ready. Meanwhile, there are beginners’ courses starting in Malmö, so please consult here if you are interested.
MYSORE class is the traditional form of teaching and practicing Ashtanga yoga. It’s the way Ashtanga yoga was (and still is) originally taught in Mysore, India. The participants memorize (or at least try to memorize, with the help of cheat sheets which we have available) the Ashtanga yoga sequence, and practice at their own pace and according to their own ability whilst the teacher gives personal guidance and adjustments. You practice the postures that you have learned, and when the teacher finds that you are ready to move on, you will get instructions for the next posture.
We work with the Ashtanga yoga sequences as a framework but try to help each practitioner find variations and adaptations that suit the particular individual. Classes are mixed level with beginners practicing next to more seasoned practitioners. You don’t have to arrive before the class starts; you can arrive late, but you need to finish your practice before the end of the class.
LED class is guided by the teacher by using Sanskrit count and English, and the students go through the sequence without interruption. No detailed instructions other than for in and exhalation and the Sanskrit names of postures are given. Students are asked to stop at their last posture and wait until the finishing sequence unless the teacher invites them to continue. Contrary to Mysore style everyone begins and ends the class together and all participants are thus asked to come on time for class. The class covers the Primary Series of Ashtanga yoga. You don’t need to be able to do the whole sequence to participate, but the class is not suitable for complete beginners of Ashtanga yoga. If you are not sure whether you can attend or not, please contact us and tell us about your experience.
