1. Mysore class
Suitable for beginners and advanced practitioners. This is a traditional way to learn and practice Ashtanga yoga. Named after the city of Mysore, where the Ashtanga Yoga guru lived, Sri Pattabhi Jois. The Mysore class is open to people of all skill levels. Everyone performs their practice at a convenient pace and rhythm, without focusing on others.
Mysore Class Benefits
1. Come when it is convenient for you. No need to rush and adjust your work schedule for classes in the studio. Mysor classes in our studio are held from 06.30 in the morning until 21.00 in the evening with a short break (from 13.30 to 15.00), and you can start the practice at any time in this interval.

2. The teacher works with you individually. You do not need to adapt to the rest of the students, “skip” difficult asanas, rush into the pose, risking injury. You move in the rhythm of your own breath, working through difficult moments with the teacher.
3. You get used to personal practice. The Mysore class will teach you responsibility and independent practice, and soon you will not be dependent on the teacher and studio. Your practice will always be with you, wherever you are.
An ice class is the implementation of the First series of Ashtanga Yoga, which takes place under the full guidance of a teacher who calls asanas, counts vinyasas and sets a specific breathing rhythm. The teacher can help the student in any position, as well as remind you of the need to concentrate and hold on to the bandhas. Explanations on the technique of performing asanas on the ice classes do not give. Firstly, this cannot be done due to the continuity of the flow of practice, and secondly, it is assumed that the student has acquired the necessary skills at the major classes.
The ice class is not for beginners. Before you come to this lesson, you must master at least two-thirds of the First Series, know and apply the basic principles of Ashtanga Yoga (breathing, bandhi and drishti).
3. The ice class Half Primary
The same as the ice class, but in a simplified format: only half of the first series of Ashtanga yoga (before Navasana), troughs (Urdhva Dhanurasana) and inverted poses are performed. In this class, preparatory and simplified variations of asanas are used, more detailed explanations on detuning, breathing, and working with attention are possible. This lesson is very useful for students who are confused in vinyasas and drishti and do not know how to maintain the correct breathing rhythm. Suitable for those who started recently.
3. Workshops and seminars
At the workshops, aspects of yoga are examined in detail, for which there is no way to get to the main lessons: purification practices, techniques of deep relaxation, pranayama and so on.
