A full-time Ashtanga student practices 6 days per week, with a Saturday holiday. Usually, a minimum of 3 days per week (i.e. every other day) to start is enough to retain the energy of class. You can increase that amount in time. Often, this happens organically.
goodyoga offers Mysore Ashtanga classes for our FALL schedule:
GOODPOINT Ashtanga–67 West Street, Ste. 404 Monday- Friday, 114 Greenpoint Ave. for Sunday practice
• Monday through Friday 630-830a, Sundays 8-945a
Additional poses will be given to you when the teacher and your body deem appropriate. For your safety, PLEASE do not attempt postures on your own beyond what you are taught each day in class, and do not ask for more asanas. It is important to learn every pose, as well as how to get into and out of them correctly, by a trained teacher. Postures will be taught one by one, within the context of your overall practice. Ashtanga is a lifelong practice; in fact, it is in the Mysore method of study that you may eventually progress beyond the Primary Series. So stay focused, have patience, and enjoy the journey.
