The Confluence offers Mysore, Guided class, Panel Discussions and Workshops for all levels.
This is the method Pattabhi Jois used at his Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute in Mysore, India. Students practice independently without verbal instruction, which requires that they have the
primary series committed to memory. Teachers provide hands on guidance and attention to specific needs. To participate in Mysore style classes, we ask that you have a regular ashtanga practice and be familiar with the primary series of Ashtanga yoga.
An Ashtanga yoga led class is a traditional 90-minute class, counted in Sanskrit that takes you through a full led primary series of the Ashtanga Vinyasa method. Will there be an alternative to the morning Mysore class at the Confluence? Yes, there will be a led (guided) intro level or primary series class running concurrently with the morning Mysore class. The guided class will be appropriate for all levels of students with a reasonable level of fitness. Guided classes provide an opportunity to learn proper pacing, alignment cues, traditional Sanskrit terminology, etc.
