Whether you are already a yogi or want to try it for the first time Mysore is the perfect place to stretch your body and your mind!
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn Yoga in Mysore directly from the source. Mysore is the home of Ashtanga Yoga, but you can choose to practice one of the many branches of yoga, including Hatha and Iyengar. You’ll be inspired by your Guru as are hundreds of Yogis from around the world who come to Mysore to practice every year.
Choose Ashtanga if you want to harmonize your mind, breath and body to create a smooth and poetic daily practice where each day you follow the same sequence. Hatha will see you hold each position (asana) a little longer, stretching a little deeper also while coordinating your movements with your breath. The Iyengar method introduces props such as bolsters, blocks and straps to help you achieve more advanced postures. It is possible to get the benefit from these postures before you have reached the level required to do them independently, and your Guru will be there to support you.
Yoga’s combined focus on mindfulness, breathing and physical movement brings health benefits with regular practice. Yoga practitioners report better sleep, increased energy levels and muscle tone, relief from muscle pain and stiffness, improved circulation and overall better general health. The breathing aspect of yoga can also benefit heart rate and blood pressure. The overall practice is also beneficial for our mind – a form a meditation, a chance to calm and clear the mind and be present on your mat. For 1.5 hours the world off your mat doesn’t exist and you are dedicating this time to your own well being. A wonderful way to start your day!
