YOUR FIRST CLASS

We are excited that you decided to attend your first Mysore Class!

No experience or prior knowledge of the sequence is required in order to attend Mysore Class. Just some curiosity and a willingness to learn. We recommend that you first come for the Mysore Class, before you join our monthly Primary Series Led Class, as this one is only for the students, who have been practicing regularly with us.

Once you book your first class through MINDBODY and come for your first Mysore Class, we will introduce you to the sequences known as Sun Salutations A & B. Depending on your experience and body type, you will be practicing initially about 60 minutes. Gradually, your practice will grow with you, up to 90 minutes.

Initially, try to commit to at least 3-4 classes a week, as this will give you a good chance to enjoy the benefits and to foster a regular, dedicated routine.

YOGIC OBSERVANCES

Avoid eating directly before the class

 

Avoid consuming alcohol and heavy meals on the evening preceding your practice

 

Come clean with a set of fresh clothes! If you can, it is really good to take a showe before the class. Practicing Yoga is like entering the pathway to the temple of your soul. 

Practice not more than 6 days a week. One day of the week should be considered as a ‘day-off’ from the practice and in ashtanga tradition it is usually Saturday or Sunday.​

Take rest on new moon and full moon days. In Hindu tradition there are other rituals of worship to carry out on these days. For us, an extra day of rest is welcomed too as well as learning to live in accordance with the natural rhythms and cycles of the sun, moon, seasons and our bodies.

 

Give your body rest during the heavy part of your menstrual cycle (usually day 1 to day 3). Avoid inversions and deep twists on the following days of your menstrual bleeding.

Don’t practice with a fever. When in doubt try a few surya namaskara and closing sequence only. You don’t want to overheat your body when in fever.

If you have an injury, speak with the teacher and practice with the intention to heal.​

You can practice ashtanga during pregnancy, but take it very easy and skip the practice completely in your first trimester. Your teacher will tell you how to modify the postures.

 

Spread the idea of loving kindness on and beyond your mat.
