What We Offer
Daily Mysore Classes
Year round, daily, self-practice, with Prem and Radha Carlisi, Sunday through Friday, 7.30am to 9.30am. (No classes on Saturday or moon days). You are welcome to join the Mysore classes ( minimum 1 week) if you already have a daily Mysore practice. We strongly suggest a 3 week minimum. Preferred time is 1-3 months.
New to the Mysore Program
A 3 week commitment to learning the traditional ‘Mysore style’ method. Morning classes run between 7.30am and 9.30am and you can choose any day to start. There is a 3 week commitment to learning the Mysore method with us, for those who have not yet cultivated a daily practice. Please note, even if you have another yoga practice you’ve been doing, we still consider you a BEGINNER to this method if you have not developed a daily Mysore practice. This also applies to students who have dabbled in ashtanga, doing led classes, do vinyasa classes, or, just simply aren’t regular yet with their Msyore practice. During these 3 weeks, each morning we’ll take you step by step, progressively, each day to the point that is appropriate for you. Focusing on the fundamentals and helping you to walk away after the 3 weeks, with a practice that’s intended for you to do daily once you leave. You can then carry on with a ‘qualified’ Ashtanga teacher or come back and learn more.

The course will focus on: History of Ashtanga yoga, Primary and Intermediate Series foundation, understanding breath/ bandha and drishti,/pranayama/adjusting w/ practice teaching/ayurveda basics and foundation/daily ayurvedic life philosophy/ ayurvedic cooking and nutrition. ( mediation and pranayama practiced daily) You will learn the authentic art of practicing and teaching the Ashtanga Vinyasa method of Asana practice. There is much beneath the surface of this amazing transformational healing art form. We will do our best to unleash the wisdom within you to understand what it takes to practice and teach at the highest level. We will explore the many aspects of practice and teaching by having you participate fully in the many aspects that make this a unique technique. This is the PHD program of Ashtanga Yoga. You must come in with sufficient understanding of the foundation of practice from your own experience as we will use this to enhance the course. After all we are a Re-Search Center! If you feel you have what it takes apply now as it will fill quickly. Students who take this course will have the opportunity to assist Prem and Radha(at their discretion) in the shala to get experience working in the mysore room. Depending on how long they apprentice, this can lead to Endorsement from AYBRC.
