Our Yoga Studio offers Ashtanga Led Half-Primary Series Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays 6 – 7:20 pm.
(Wednesday night is dance night at Climb Cleveland.)
At Climb Cleveland, we offer Half Led Primary Series. We hope to offer the traditional teaching style soon, which is called Mysore.
Intro to Half Primary Series
Our Led Half-Primary Series is a modified version of the full Ashtanga Primary Series. In this class, we will move through Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskara A and B), the standing postures, half of the seated postures, and the finishing sequence. Once we get to seated series, there is a vinyasa between each pose. Vinyasas are optional; you may choose to skip them between sides. Initially, completing a vinyasa between each pose may be challenging, but in time, you will notice how much strength and stamina you gain in your practice through doing them.
Mysore (coming soon)
Mysore style is the traditional method of Ashtanga yoga. It is named for Mysore, India where Sri K. Pattabhi Jois lived and taught at K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute as it stands today.
Mysore is a self‐paced class allowing students to receive individual instruction from the teacher while learning the Ashtanga yoga practice. All levels are welcome from new beginners to advanced practitioners. In the beginning, new students will receive more attention to learn and memorize the postures. In time, subsequent postures are taught and integrated into their existing practice. As they become familiar with the practice, they are allowed more independence, getting adjustments and assistance only when needed.
