Astanga yoga is learned step by step, one thing at a time. No prior knowledge or experience is required, only desire and willingness to learn. You can come just as you are, and gradually the Astanga practice will strengthen and open your body in a safe and healthy way.
Whether you are new or experienced, we teach you one thing and one pose at a time and adapt the teaching to where you are. In yoga, you dont have to keep up with anyone but yourself.
The Astanga method is a complete yoga system focusing on dynamic execution of series of yoga poses linked together by deep resonant breathing. The practice makes you calm, healthy and stable and creates balance between body, mind and spirit.
We offer a high standard and quality of teaching in a healthy, safe and reasonable way.
In the Mysore class you are taught individually and you learn the Astanga method, step by step, one step at a time.
In Led class, focus, rhythm and linkage of movement and breath (vinyasa) are practiced. Traditional guided flow class.
The Studio is an elegant oasis in the city. A place where you can find peace and space to breathe and find yourself.
Astanga Yoga starts with focus on very simple effective movements that are coordinated with deep breathing. Each breath connects the different poses (asanas) with each other. So you breathe your way from one pose to another. You then repeat the sequence until its memorized. By working this way, you learn one section at a time and are able to make progress at a pace that is appropriate for you.
With the Mysore methoed you learn to trust and become independent in your own yoga practice so you can always practice anytime and anywhere
Yoga practice is for life. Daily practice keeps the body healthy and gives you mental peace and increased focus, and helps you live more naturally and in accordance with your own nature.
We are there to facilitate and assist you with your yoga practice. We help you to remember the order of the poses, help you with new poses and help with poses that are challenging for you at the moment.

This is the traditional method for learning and practicing Astanga Yoga. Students practice independently a set series of postures at their own pace, under the guidance of a qualified teacher.
In the Mysore class the Astanga method and poses are taught to the individual student with one-to-one instruction. The correct movements, breathing, and other aspects of the method are thus gradually learned, in a step-by-step process accessible to all.
This unique method allows practitioners to move slowly forward when their body and mind is ready as opposed to "keeping pace" with a large group, as in a guided class. This gives both beginners and more experienced practitioners a forum where they can learn poses from basic to more complexed with the one-on-one guidance needed to perform them safely and accurately
Mysore classes are therefore very suitable for all levels from absolute beginners to experienced practitioners. There are no prerequisites, except for the desire and the will to learn
Practicing in the Mysore classes is the natural way to learn yoga. A beginner can expect that their first class is about 30 to 40 minutes. The practice time will gradually increase as new poses are learned, up to about 90 minutes.
The Mysore method is named after the city of India where the system of yoga comes from. Every year thousands of students go to Mysore in India to be taught according to the traditional method by Sharath Jois at Sharath Yoga Center formerly known as KPJAYI.
Mysore beginner’s class is the first steps into Mysore classes. Beginners are taught with other practitioners at different levels in our common Mysore classes.
The poses are taught to the individual student with one-to-one instruction. The correct movements, breathing, and other aspects of the method are thus gradually learned, in a step-by-step process accessible to all.

Practicing in the Mysore environment is a natural way to learn yoga. A beginner can expect their first class be about 30 to 40 minutes. The practice time will gradually increase as new poses are learned.
There are no prerequisites, except for the desire and the will to learn. However before you start you need to participate in any of the 3 following introductory options: Intro week, a private intro or intro class.
You practice in the Mysore beginner classes until you remember Sun Salutation A and B and the sequence of the standing poses - fairly ☺, then you participate in the regular Mysore classes.
In Led class you are led through all the poses from primary series with the traditional Sanskrit counting method. A valuable part of learning the Astanga yoga is to memorize the correct vinyasas (movement directed by specific breath), and this is done in the weekly Led Class.
When you memorize the vinyasas your mind had an object to focus the attention on and the practice therefore moves inside, so to speak, from the thinking mind of doing, to the present mind of being. The practice then becomes more fluent, soft and easy, and less performative and creates a more satisfying sense of wellbeing, that is associated with yoga.
Everyone is welcome to Led Class, even if you are beginner and haven’t learned so many poses. Beginners and everyone else simply stop when they reach the last pose they have learnt in the Mysore class. And then wait for the class to reach to the finishing sequence where they again participate.
Led class is for checking your vinyasa and increase stamina ~ Sharath Jois
At Astanga Guided, the teacher guides you through the Astanga yoga series and provides advices and guidance along the way.
The emphasis is on learning the correct vinyasa, ie. when to breathe in and out and what movements to perform on the specific breath.
Guidance is also given on how to move in and out most appropriately and how to achieve more stability in the yoga poses. The use of muscle locks and focal points are introduced, these help deepen benefits and concentration.
Focus in Astanga Guided is on building a strong foundation with the help of the sun salutation and all the standing poses as well as some of the sitting poses. You will also be introduced to some of the finishing poses. The class finishes with relaxation.
Astanga Guided is recommended to anyone relatively new to Astanga as a supplement to their Mysore practice. More experienced students should attend the Led Class.
In Mysore Class, the student is taught a sequence of postures through one-on-one instruction. The correct movements, breathing, and other aspects of the practice are learned gradually, in a step-by-step process accessible to anyone. This method allows each student time to practice and memorize what they have learned before adding more. Students are able to practice independently and at their own pace while surrounded by the energy and inspiration of other students in the room. The main teacher and assistants are able to work with each student individually. Initially, students may require more attention, but as they become proficient in their practice, they are allowed more independence, receiving adjustments and assistance only when required, Joisyoga.com.
Each week a Led Primary Series class is taught in place of the regular Mysore style practice. Led class reinforces the proper vinyāsa system – when to inhale and when to exhale as we enter into and out of each posture. For both new and experienced students, led class is an important compliment to a regular Mysore practice. It’s an opportunity to ensure that each vinyāsa is being learned and practiced correctly. Furthermore, surrendering to the teacher’s count and pacing, is an opportunity to increase both our internal and external strength, and our relationship with the traditional lineage, Joisyoga.com.
