What is a Mysore program?

A "Mysore" program the traditional way to teach Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. See the descriptions below to breakdown what you would expect from each class.

All Levels Mysore- style

We call our Mysore style classes, all levels because they truly are. In this environment you learn the practice 1:1 within a group setting, at a pace that is relevant for you. 

In the Mysore room you will see daily practitioners of 25+ years and 2 weeks practicing side by side. All bodies, ability, ages, sizes, genders are welcome. 

Some students practices are 30 mins long, while others are 2hrs. Know that you can arrive and leave anytime within the time-slot of a Mysore class. 

Led Class

Our led style Ashtanga Vinyasa classes provide rhythm and structure to your regular practice. Everyone moves together with detail instructions on the postures and breath from the experienced teacher.

Not for total beginners, our half, full primary and intermediate series are a weekly offering on our program's schedule. 

Beginners

We love Beginners!

Are you ready to learn a life-long practice of much physical and mental benefit?

We have specific monthly intensives, weekly beginners specific sessions that you might enjoy starting with or you can dive right into the Mysore room if you have a little Ashtanga experience.  

Read our Beginners specific post here or view our upcoming Beginners courses here.

Beyond the postures

We very much believe there's more to yoga than just the shapes you can make with you body.

We teach prānāyāma, chanting, philosophy, hold monthly community conference and book groups to invite more depth, debate and discussion to your study.

All the green will happen in-studio. These are 7 max capacity and have specific timescales around them to facilitate cleaning and prep. They must be pre-booked online before attending and cancel ASAP if you are unable to attend. There will be space in the moon studio to complete closing/ starting early (subject to availability).


* Mysore connected means that there will be a livestream set up online for small instructions and support from the teacher within the in-studio Mysore room.

- Please bathe before practicing

 
- Out of town guests, welcome! Please have a small discussion with the teacher before you start.
 
- Please let the teacher know of any injuries you may have or if you are pregnant or if you would or would not like to be physically adjusted. 
 
- We encourage women to listen to their menstrual cycle and take rest where needed. 
 
- Please respect the practice times.

- You can bring a small bag of valuables into the room, but phones off/silent and if you have to use them (i.e. parent or on-call doctor) please go to the reception area.

This is an important discussion between yourself and your teacher.  We will always ask you if you are comfortable with an assist and always encourage you to share with us openly if it doesn’t feel good.  In the Mysore setting, you will observe that lots of the teaching can be via adjustments and also verbal too.  The relationship of student and teacher is paramount to our community here at Meadowlark and always invite dialogue. 

Yes, we are always happy to talk about this.  Since more of this information at Pattabhi Jois' abuse "came to light" in 2017 during the #metoo movement we have been addressing these issues and here are some of the resources online with blogs and podcasts HERE explaining our dialogue and action around the subject.  Please always talk to the Mysore team teachers about this openly at any point also. 

Rather than consent cards in our physical Mysore room, we have a note system where before you enter class you will find a space to write a confidential note and place it beside your mat in the room if you would like to that day. It could simply say "no adjustments" or "sore hip".  This allows dialogue to happen without it being public or verbal between you and your teacher. Of course, do talk to your teacher also if you'd prefer. Online Mysore please continue to use the private chat feature on Zoom. 

Good question. 

We write "Mysore team" on our booking system as the mysore program is made up of 4 senior teachers and 5 assistants. 

Generally:

Emma Isokivi, our Level 2 authorised Mysore program director teaches the morning program. 

Karen Kirkness, founder of Meadowlark Yoga teaches on Sunday and covers across the whole program.

Kirsten Waugh, teaches the evening program. 

Senior teacher Amy Hughes, teaches the online Mysore program and cover. 

Please wear clean, comfortable, breathable fabrics that allow you to move. 

This practice should bring more wellness and steadiness to your mind and body. It will challenge you on lots of different levels and allow you to take some of that learning into your everyday life. If done mindfully allow you to make your life fuller and easier.
