Mysore at The Mindful
Ashtanga San Francisco Mysore Yoga

with Jennifer Dougherty

Mysore: An all levels, self-paced Ashtanga practice. Students are taught the classic Ashtanga sequences pose-by-pose. The teacher assists and adjusts practitioners individually. Beginners and those with a therapeutic self-practice welcome.

Traditionally, Mysore-style Ashtanga is not practiced on full and new
moons, which were considered inauspicious days on which to engage
in strenuous practice. At The Mindful Body, we observe the full and new
moon days as rest days, where no formal practice is offered. Practitioners
are encouraged to use this time for meditation, study, and reflection.

New Moons : NO PRACTICE ~ Rest Day

Full Moon: NO PRACTICE ~ Rest Day

MYSORE AT THE MINDFUL BODY

WHAT MYSORE AT TMB IS NOT:
- a practice in which you have to already know the sequence of postures
before you start
- a class in which you receive no guidance or instruction
- a free-form practice with no structure
- overwhelming or dangerous
- only for young people

WHAT MYSORE AT TMB IS:
- a dynamic way to practice, using a template of basic postures
that are repeated each time at your own pace, with the guidance
of the Mysore team of teachers
- intended to purify the body, through deep breathing, sweating, and postures that
work through every joint and muscle in the body
- a practice suitable for students at all levels, including absolute beginners
- good for students working therapeutically
- a great way to work towards a home practice
- supported by expert and mindful attention to your specific needs
- a welcoming community of practitioners, with frequently scheduled social gatherings
