Ashtanga Mysore: Old Shala Style & Weekend Workshop
Mysore : Old Shala Style (15 students, 1 teacher, 1 week)
In the early days of daily yoga practice in Mysore, India, our teacher, the late master of Ashtanga Yoga, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and his grandson Sharath, taught in a tiny room with flourescent lighting in groups of maximum 12 students at a time. In this workshop you will experience the unique combination of 1 teacher and a small class. This is the perfect opportunity to deepen your already existing practice and experience a taste of old India right here in Singapore.
This one week practitioner intensive includes morning Mysore practice (6 days) with an intimate group of no more than 15 students. All levels welcome as long as students practice Mysore Style.
Group A class will meet every morning at 7am sharp for opening chant. Please be punctual.
Group A :

7am – weekdays (30 Apr – 3 May)
Group B :
9.15am onwards – weekends (28 – 29 Apr)
8.15am onwards – weekdays (30 Apr – 3 May)
(Students from Group B are to wait for someone in Group A to finish before entering the room, so that at any one time, there are only 15 students practicing.)

Build Your Foundation - The Standing Postures
Through detailed analysis and fun partner work you will feel how your legs are your connection to the power center in your pelvis and to the Earth below. The Standing Postures are perhaps the most healing series of movements in the Ashtanga practice. When done with healthy alignment these humble series of postures build your foundation, connection to the ground and sense of inner awareness. In this workshop learn how the structural foundation for forward bends, inversions and deep hip opening work is set up in the standing series of Ashtanga yoga. Gain a new found appreciation for this foundational work of yoga!
1 May (Tues), 1pm – 3pm
