Most of our classes are conducted “Mysore-style” — students do their own practice with one-on-one assistance from the teacher. This traditional teaching method is appropriate for students of all levels, including beginners.

Led Primary Series Class
- Saturday: 8:30–10am
Students are led verbally through the Primary series. Everyone practices at the same time.
Please arrive a few minutes early so as to be ready when class starts.
Drop-ins with a basic familiarity with the Ashtanga practice are welcome!
Note: when the school is closed on a Saturday due to a moon day or holiday, led Primary series is offered in lieu of Mysore-style practice on the preceding practice day (usually Friday) at its usual “Saturday” time.
According to Vedic tradition, moon days are not good days to learn or to teach – the influence of the moon is too strong or too weak to allow for the proper assimilation of knowledge. Thus in the Ashtanga yoga tradition of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, yoga classes are not offered on the days of the new and full moon.
Moon days follow the Hindu calendar, according to which days are considered sunrise-to-sunrise and, additionally, may be more or less than 24 hours long as they are based not on the clock but on the relative positions of sun, earth and moon (thus our new and full moon days may differ from those in other calendars).
