drop ins
drop in classes are only for students with an existing mysore practice please. 

complete beginners to mysore ashtanga yoga are welcome to join at any time. all new students must commit to a full month attending class 5-6 days a week (exceptions only for those with family commitments, or with instructor's permission). allow 30-40 minutes your first day. *the time duration of the class is not indicative of the length of your practice. students arrive at the time most suitable for them. there's no need to know the order of the poses. the practice is offered from teacher to student one pose at a time, slowly. see the practice for more information.  

mysore oakland offers a supportive environment for practitioners of all experience levels, ages, and abilities. guidance is offered in a traditional manner in the lineage of the late sri k. pattabhi jois, his daughter saraswati, and grandson sharath jois who both continue to teach. sharath is the director of the k. pattabhi jois ashtanga yoga institute in mysore, india. “traditional” meaning each student is taught according to their needs as the teacher sees fit. there is a common misconception that ashtanga yoga is for the young, fit, or advanced student only. this is untrue.

“ashtanga yoga is a breathing practice, the rest is just bending.” - sri k. pattabhi jois
