At AYCT we teach Mysore style: the traditional method of learning and practicing Ashtanga yoga.
Mysore is a city in the south of India where the source of Ashtanga Yoga, KPJAYI is located.


  • Individual attention from a qualified teacher
  • The learning of a practice that you can take anywhere
  • The flexibility to show-up anytime within class hours
  • Transformation of the body and mind
  • The cultivation of a meditative experience
  • Perfect for beginners to experienced practitioners

The philosophy behind Mysore style is that we are all different, hence no guided class can fit the needs of everybody. In Mysore class students practice independently at their own pace and level of ability in a group setting. All instructions are given one-on-one, and the teacher is present to give help in the postures and guidance with the practice.

To attend the Mysore class you don’t need any experience, strength or flexibility. Mysore practice will build up all that in a safe and effective way, and chances are your practice will take off very quickly. Remembering the sequence is not a requirement either. The teacher will help you to work at your own pace and build up your personal routine.

Mysore practice builds up independence and confidence, nurtures the seed of self-awareness and presence, and allows the deeper aspects of yoga to unfold naturally. You will most likely learn more about your yoga practice in a month of attending a Mysore style class than a year spent attending only led classes. All you need is a motivation to learn.
