Ashtanga yoga is a system of yoga originally transmitted to the modern world by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. The system is now transmitted by his grandson, Sharath Jois. This method of yoga involves synchronizing breath with a progressive series of postures, asanas, varying in difficulty and benefit. It is designed to purify the body, promote the proper functioning of the digestive system, build strength, and restore range of motion to the body. The method of practice taught in Ashtanga relies on linking postures with deep, even breathing and steady gazing with the eyes. The system of linking the breath with movement is known as vinyasa. Mysore (named after Mysore, India) is the heart of Ashtanga Yoga and the student-teacher relationship is central to this approach. The Mysore Method: It is a self‐paced practice where students are taught postures one at a time on an individual basis. The practice is cumulative, so each series of postures must be accomplished before proceeding to the next. As postures are learned and memorized, and as the student becomes steady in their practice, subsequent postures are taught and integrated into their existing practice. The Mysore style provides a unique opportunity to work one‐on‐one with the teacher. In addition to Mysore, Led Primary classes are recommended in order to establish rhythm of the breath and vinyasa count. The Ashtanga system is not complete without incorporating both styles of learning. Typically, Ashtanga is practiced six days a week, with 1‐2 of the classes being led.
