The term "Mysore style" refers to the way Ashtanga Yoga was taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in the city of Mysore, India. In Mysore style class, each student is taught individually. In other words, he or she is given a one-on-one lesson within a group setting. This method of teaching is appropriate for both experienced practitioners and those new to yoga. Students are encouraged to practice daily and make a monthly commitment in order to memorize the traditional sequence and develop a personal practice.
Timing is flexible, students may begin practicing any time after the posted start time provided they finish by the end of class. New students attending Mysore class should allow 30 to 45 minutes for practice. As strength and stamina build more of the sequence will be taught and one’s practice will gradually lengthen.
