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.
