Mysore Class (2 hr)

starts Sunday 21 july 2024 at 09:30

Registration below

This 2-hour in-studio program is taught in English.

Mysore-style class in Ashtanga offers a format in which students can develop or refine their practice with the support of one-on-one personalised guidance adapted to each student’s ability and knowledge.

In this class, each student practices at his/her own breathing rhythm while the teacher focuses on providing verbal cues regarding technique, alignment, adaptations, and light hands-on adjustments to each student individually. The adjustments are not meant to set the student into the perfect posture but to provide a sensory input for exploring asana as beneficial at a given moment. In this way, a student is invited to gradually develop a highly conscious experience of presence in one’s body, breath, and mind and to open up to the subtle layer of practice. This detailed exploration greatly increases students' confidence in the practice and allows them to develop their self-practice at home.

For the asana section, students are invited to download and bring the illustrated primary and intermediate sequences of Ashtanga yoga to class. The course also comprises group pranayama, meditation and relaxation.

An additional session will be given on September 1st.

This 2-hour program is 26 Euros.

Style: Ashtanga Mysore-style

This course is for you if you have some basic knowledge of Ashtanga primary or secondary series, and if you wish to explore technique and postures in more depth, without the constraint of conforming to the group rhythm. Unlike a "led" class where the teacher sets the rhythm for the whole group, the Mysore-style format allows you to find your own pace of practice and depth of exploration. In this format, the teacher focuses on one-on-one guidance regarding any aspect of the technique, posture or adjustments. This detailed exploration greatly increases your confidence in the practice and allows you to develop your self-practice at home. As the course lasts 2 hours, there is enough time for asana and group pranayama, meditation and relaxation. For the asana section, you can download and bring the illustrated primary and intermediate sequences of Ashtanga yoga to class. Go to the Ashtanga Mysore-style page.

Teacher: Marija Bjekovic

Marija Bjekovic Marija's teaching path started after the completion of 200 hours Ashtanga yoga teacher training with John Scott and Lucy Crawford Scott in 2015. Over the years, she found the grounding for both her studies and teaching in the legacy of Sri T. Krishnamcharya, the father of modern yoga and a pioneer in yoga therapy. She has been studying his legacy through the lens of his two long-term students, Srivatsa Ramaswami and A.G. Mohan. She is currently completing a 300 hours Svastha Yoga Therapy Foundations program with A.G. Mohan and his family. The practice has shown her that strength, stability and flexibility are qualities to be found at other levels than purely physical. The physical form is paradoxically merely the background for contemplation of constant interplay and alignment of energies within. When she teaches in Ashtanga vinyasa context, she does so from an understanding that such a layered practice is primarily meant as a framework to start cultivating subtle breath and calm mind. The physical aspect of practice can and should be individualized, without compromising the more profound nature of the practice. She loves to encourage students to explore the practice from such a perspective, and to support them in growing a sustainable and nourishing yoga practice through different fluctuations of life.
