Beginning a Mysore Practice
If you have a previous Mysore Ashtanga practice, you may attend your first session at goodyoga anytime.
Beginners to Ashtanga, regardless of general yoga experience, must observe a Mysore Ashtanga class for 30 minutes, anytime, at any studio prior to their first practice.
At goodyoga Greenpoint, beginners are welcome to attend their first class on any Thursday at 7.30am.
At goodyoga Bushwick, beginners are welcome to attend their first class on any Wednesday at 10.15am.
At goodyoga Clinton Hill, beginners are welcome to attend their first class on any Friday at 7am.
Commit to at least 3 classes in your first week for your first month to best observe the cumulative effects of the practice.
What to Expect
In Mysore Ashtanga, students come and go during the allotted period depending on the length of their practice. This allows for more freedom for when you can begin. In the initial stages, it’s best to have a teacher present during your entire practice. Therefore, please come as early as the class start time. Experienced practitioners may arrive when goodyoga opens at 6.30a It’s best to arrive no later than one hour before the class end time.
Please do not bring any Ashtanga reference books or practice sheets to class. You will learn the sequence by heart faster if you focus on the connection between your body and breath in class. If you need help remembering from time to time, ask your teacher.
