The Ashtanga Yoga Victoria Difference
Grounded in tradition, with individual attention, focused on personal growth.
The Mysore teaching method is unique to Ashtanga. It's an "at-your-own pace" yoga practice, under the guidance of a highly experienced teacher. Students arrive during the open "Mysore" practice times to complete their practice. This traditional system of learning yoga provides the personal instruction you need to grow and improve where you need it most. Students receive so much help from the teacher, it's like they're the only student in the room.
Beyond our unique class style, the second big difference between us and some other yoga studios, is found in how we approach the challenges you encounter in yoga.
We know that eventually, in Ashtanga, you will get stuck. There will be a posture that you just can't seem to get past. While some teachers would have you just keep practicing the full posture to the best of your ability until you can finally do it right, sort of like banging your head against a wall until it breaks.
Instead, we teach you modifications, developed from years of education, training and experience, that will act as training wheels until you're ready to do the full posture. You progress faster, and do so safely. Just one more reason that the Mysore Method is the best way to learn Ashtanga Yoga.
