The Principle of a Mysore Yoga Class
Mysore is the name of the city in India, where Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois, the founders of modern Ashtanga Yoga, lived. When, the first student came to him in 1970`, the yoga class was a bit different from the way students in the West get used to practice. The unique pratice within the Ashtanga Yoga tradition is individual, one-on-one attention, which was the main effort to came to Patthabhi Jois’. After 1980s Pattabhi Jois ‘invented’ the “Led Class”, because the number of students increased rapidly. Following the instruction by teacher, accept his authority and tempo of breathing brought the method to easiest way to teach the large group of people.
„During the Mysore Class I like to be in the silence, listening only my ujjayi breath and the sounds of others, is like repeating mantra which comes from inside. With constant practice the piece will come.”
Mysore Class Introduction
The Mysore outlook lets student to do the practice in their own rhythm, physical ability, mental and energetic preferences. It means that student can still feel independence and have their own influence on their practice. Each of the student can be on different level of progression but still inside the room every can feel the support of of the group setting. The more often you come, the better your relationship with the teacher is. At the beginning of Mysore Class let your teacher know about any injuries or your special request, but maintain the calm inside the room, no words and no clamor is preferred.
When you come to the MysoreRroom you just roll out your mat and start practicing. During your practice teacher will support your individual practice. When the majority of students occur in the romm the teacher sing the beginning mantras. For beginners to the practice who have not attended a beginners class before with the fundamentals of the sequence, the first few Mysore Classes can be shorter, sometimes even 45 minutes. When you finished your practice after relaxation just give a small nod to the teacher and leave the room with your staffs.
"Practice, practice, practice and all is coming".
Being a Mysore teacher is a very modest challenge. My preferred method for helping students is physical non-verbal adjustments. In a Mysore Class there is no space or even time for a long explanation. I like to use only touch to share ideas and give ta sense of orientation in a very clear way. I want to give more physical adjustment because it gives more encouraged and supported then trained feeling. Mysore Room Practice established long-term ongoing practice and building trust in relationships between student and teacher. The efforts you have invested in your practice will come back to you very soon
