Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Moriah Helms
This Mysore Style class is an Ashtanga Yoga class, as traditionally practiced in Mysore, India, the home of the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. The Mysore class is a group class where students have a self-paced practice, with verbal instruction and hands-on adjustments from the teacher. Because the instruction in a Mysore class is highly individualized, it is appropriate for both new students as well as more advanced practitioners.
Each student is taught and supported by the teacher as he/she memorizes the sequence and develops a personal rhythm to the practice. This class is appropriate for students of all levels and is an excellent opportunity to develop a practice that can slowly build over a lifetime. Knowing the sequence of postures is not required, just being open-minded, curious, and receptive to learning.
Moriah Helms started practicing Ashtanga in 2010 and she has never looked back. Moriah teaches out of a love for the practice, and is excited to be bringing Ashtanga to midcoast Maine. The vigorous, disciplined practice of the primary series awoke in her a sense of freedom, competence, and well-being. Moriah's classes are challenging yet accessible, and she works to create a warm, fun atmosphere.
