Mysore Style is the classic form of practicing Ashtanga yoga. The students practice by themselves and at their own pace under guidance of a teacher. The teacher moves around supervising individually and giving adjustments.
These classes are open for all levels. For people who have never come in contact with yoga before we suggest you take the class “Ashtanga for beginners” a few times to begin with. You may join a class even it has begun though we ask that not later than 60 minutes before the end.
It is also possible in the mornings, with prior notice, to begin your practice before Mysore class.
Ashtanga for beginners
This is where the positions, breathing techniques and bandhas of the Ashtanga practice are explained and exercised.
These provide the basics of the first series.
Ashtanga led class
This class practices half (tuesday) or full (thursday begin 2015) of the first series using the traditional Vinyasa count technique. On Tuesdays you may continue Mysore style after class, at your own pace. It is recommended that you begin with “Ashtanga for beginners” and then to confer with the teacher whether you are ready for the “led class”

Inspya Yoga is a form of Power Yoga and it borrows aspects from traditional Vinyasa and Iyengar yoga. It combines the precise execution of the Asanas (yoga positions) with a mixture of moving and static poses. The main focus of this form of yoga are balance, strength, flexibility and perseverance which are deepened through the breathing exercises (Pranayama) and meditation.
There are three levels of classes.
Level 1 is for beginners, level 2 for advanced and multi-level for both beginners and advanced.
