What is a Mysore program?

A "Mysore" program is 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 Ashtanga 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. 


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.

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 verbal, kinetic and physical.  The relationship of student and teacher is paramount to our community here at Meadowlark and always invite dialogue so that you feel safe in your practice. 

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 you are invited to use the private chat feature on Zoom also. 

All of our main Mysore teachers have undertaken an 50 hour Trauma informed training with Edinburgh Community Yoga. Although they are not certified Trauma facilitators (TCTSY-F) we try to create "safer" spaces and teaching methods in our community. 

Good question. 

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


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

Vanessa Rigby late (9:30am) morning Mysore. 

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 is designed to bring you 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. 

In our Mysore community we aim to find benefits that are more than physical and invite us to explore other aspects of the practice.
