Mysore & Beginner

Mysore class will be held at Mettabee Farm located at 551 Harlemville Road in Hillsdale, NY.

Imagine a class where you can show up any time. A class where you come for 30 minutes of yoga, or an hour and 30 minutes. A class with individual instruction from the teacher. This is a Mysore class.

Mysore classes create an environment where everyone is practicing the Ashtanga sequence on their own. If you don’t know the sequence, I will teach you. Over time, you will have a practice you can do any time, anywhere. This is the gift of Mysore.

It’s okay for students to ask questions during Mysore. It’s okay to get help with a sore shoulder or tight hips. It’s okay to do only half of the sequence if you’re short on time. In a Mysore room, everyone is quietly working on their own practice, but surrounded by like-minded practitioners, with access to the teacher at any time. That’s the beauty of Mysore.

Mysore is IDEAL for beginners, as you have the opportunity to learn slowly from the teacher at your own pace. Typically, in your first class, I will teach you the sun salutations (Surya Namaskar A) and the second set of sun salutations (Surya Namaskar B). Then a closing sequence and that’s it for the first day. The beauty of Ashtanga is that your practice builds over time, a work in progress. Simply showing up is the most important thing you can do. The practice will be suited to where you are at physically, mentally, and spiritually.

Please note: ideally, your practice should be done on an empty stomach: no eating 2 hours prior and no beverages 30 minutes prior to class. Tune in to your internal experience.

Open to anyone practicing first and second series. This class is NOT available online.
