We teach the Asthanga Vinyasa primary and intermediate series, in the traditional Mysore Style.
During full moon day, we teach a special practice which introduces to the student the eight limbs of Yoga (Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana, Samadhi). It includes Puja, Classical Cleansing technics (Nabhi And Kapalabhati Kriya), Surya Kryia, Breathing Techniques, Mudra, Mantra Chanting, Chakra Cleansing, Yoga Nidra…
After Saturday morning class, one hour is dedicated to Seva. Seva is a moment during which each student can offer a bit of her/his time to help in the Shala (ex: feeding birds, help cleaning, donation in any form for animal feeding, or helping others in need…). This is of course not compulsory ! But it brings good energy and karma.
Ashtanga Foundation Class
These classes aim at preparing the body and mind to the actual Ashtanga Vinyasa Practice. They are free if you join Ashtanga Classes for a minimum 3 weeks.
Class fees are paid in advance, per week or per month. If you cannot attend a class, please inform us at least one day in advance. Any missed class without prior notice will be lost.
As we have a limited amount of spare yoga mats, please bring your own mat when coming to class.
During moon-days, we advise to shower before class as Puja and mantra chantings are performed, cleanliness enabling us to channelize the energy properly.
As you enter the Shala, we kindly ask you to:
- leave your belongings by the entrance
- go wash your feet and hands
- ring the “Karina” Bell to feel the divine within
Be happy with what you know and what you have. Try to practice with not too much expectation. Let things come naturally ! This is the principle of Abyasa Vairagya (practice with detatchment).
