The Ashtanga Yoga Shala, situated in New York's East Village, specializes in traditional Mysore Style instruction in line with the teachings of Sri K Pattabhi Jois of Mysore, South India.
Ashtanga Yoga is a unique and ancient form of yoga which combines breath with movement to produce a flowing sequential practice. Mysore style teaching is like receiving a private class in a group setting, with all levels practicing at the same time. Postures are introduced one at a time according to the individual capacity of each student.
The classes are small so we can give plenty of individual attention to each student, and are suitable for beginners as well as experienced practitioners.
