Mysore Mornings Style Yoga
The Yoga Clinic Perth offer’s Mysore Style Yoga classes, Mysore self-practice is the traditional way of practising ashtanga yoga and offers a highly personalised approach. Practising in this way gives you the space to focus. The cue to move on to the next posture comes from your own breath, instead of a teacher’s instructions. Mysore is named after the south Indian town in which the late K Pattabhi Jois taught from the late 1930s until his death in 2009.
Mysore style practice is traditionally practised to the rising sun. Practising at sunrise is particularly beneficial to balance the three ‘doshas’ (humors) of the body. As kapha (sluggishness) is dominant in the morning, the dynamic movement (vata) and heat (pitta) of the practice bring the body into a a state of balance at the start the day.
This is a silent class where you can practise to the rhythm of your own breath and allow yourself to go deeper into your practice and help your body to open. If you can not yet remember your sequence you can ask the teacher or an assistant, use a sheet, or simply follow someone who is at the same level. Most students are able to remember their sequence within a couple of weeks. When you have learnt your sequence of postures the teacher is freed up to give you individual attention and assistance in the areas that you particularly need. Students practise and progress at their personalised pace in a silent, meditative class. This class is held daily, students are encouraged to establish a regular practice, working towards a daily practice.
