There my not seem like there is much to love about February in Wisconsin. However, there are some fun holidays to distract us from the cold - Groundhog Day and Valentines Day. What's not to love!
I love a warm yoga studio in winter! In January, I set an intention to practice more. This month, to help keep me on track, I've added Mysore / Self Guided Practice sessions on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. If you are an experienced practitioner, please come practice with me! If you are new to yoga or the Ashtanga practice, I will teach you! This is set up as a donations based class on the schedule. Space is limited to just 5, so registration is required.
For now, Mysore / Self Guided Practice will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6am to 8am. Please reach out if you would like to commit to attending, but need a slightly different pracitce time (for example, you need to start at 5:30 or end after 8am)
Confused? (read on, I'll explain this Mysore Ashtanga stuff)
Mysore style classes are named after the city of Mysore in India. This is where Shri K. Pattabhi Jois lived and taught until 2009 and where his grandson, Sharth Jois continues to teach.
Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga is designed to reveal the full depth of yoga. It is the systematic step-by-step unfolding of awareness without neglecting weak areas or catering to strong ones. This approach, called vinyasa, means sequential. It implies intelligent, balanced evolution, and it produces remarkable strength, flexibility, and clearness of mind.
A Mysore style class is the traditional way to learn Yoga. Students work at their own pace with a teacher. This is ideal for everyone from brand new beginners to dedicated students. *Choose a start time that works for you within the scheduled class times.
*Beginners allow for 30 - 60 minutes
*There is no set start time, when you arrive your practice begins.
*Visiting students with an existing Ashtanga practice are welcome to drop in.
*Students of all levels will be supported and challenged.
I hope you are staying warm and I hope to see you soon!
