The Yoga Shala - Ridgefield, CT

Practice is classically defined as something done over an extended period of time, without a break and with passion/heart.  When Ashtanga Yoga is practiced in this way, taking into consideration the other limbs of yoga, it can be a transformative experience both physically and mentally.  The “Mysore” style of teaching is the traditional way this methodology was taught by Sri K Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India and continues now with his Grandson, Sharath Jois.  Beginners to this method are recommended to start in Mysore classes, as each pose is taught to you individually in a group environment over time.
