Who should practice Ashtanga?
If you have practiced other Yoga so far you will notice immense progress within just a few days when you start learning Yoga the traditional way. There is a reason, why Ashtangies are able to be doing what they do.
Everybody can practice Ashtanga. It is taught individually, one on one, so we can modify the sequences to your needs.
Also there is no better method for you if you don't feel to comfortable in German as we speak English if necessary in all classes, any time of the day!
Two types of teaching (physical) Yoga
There are two ways of teaching physical Yoga:
- Led Class
A teacher in front is leading a group, all students practice more or less the same.
Often times big groups of students. Very difficult for students to get individual attention, very few corrections.
Students hardly ever develop an individual Yoga practice.
- Mysore Style (traditional Yoga teaching)
One (or more teachers) walks around the room and assists each student individually.
All students practice individually according to their speed of breath, capabilities and experience.
Generally smaller groups of students
Learning Mysore Style
In "Mysore Style" you memorize Yoga practice step by step instead of imitating it.
The advantages of this approach are endless and learning advanced practices like Ashtanga is practically impossible in led classes.
But you can't learn such Yoga without a commitment from yourself and your teacher.
