Mysore-style is the traditional method of teaching Ashtanga. Students practice together in the same room, at their own pace, with one-on-one guidance from the teacher as needed. Students will be given a few poses at a time, and will work to memorize the series, allowing them to develop a self-led, independent practice. This repetition will lead the students to begin to feel the subtle changes taking place in their bodies, and the practice then becomes a moving meditation.
