What is Mysore style Ashtanga yoga?
Teaching in the tradition of Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois, Mysore style is the traditional method of practicing Ashtanga Yoga.  Students practice independently, according to the Ashtanga sequence, under the guidance of a teacher.  Students receive the support, adjustments and level of challenge that encourages the development of their individual practice.

Can beginners practice Mysore style?
Yes.  Rooted in parampara, the direct transmission of knowledge from the teacher to student, this system allows each student to practice at their pace and level, while benefiting from individual adjustments and support from the teacher. Delve deeper into your practice whether you are beginning or experienced. All levels welcome.

*Mysore Montreal is a separate program from AYM and the passes and class cards are not transferable, however discounts will be given to AYM students.

“I feel so lucky to have discovered yoga at a young age. A large part of my childhood was spent looking at Iyengar books, trying to imitate the postures that were described. I went to my first yoga class at age 12, and have been hooked since then. My love for learning and quest for knowledge led me to Montreal to study philosophy, music and the environment at McGill. During my degree, I became more interested in the philosophical teachings behind yoga, as well as the healing capacity that it has. My quest to learn more lead me to Ashtanga Yoga Montreal and I completed my Teacher Training with Allison Ulan, Jeanne Mudie, Jessie Goldberg and Eugene Poku in the fall of 2015.

Since then, I have taught children’s yoga in various schools around Montreal, and have become even more aware of the positive impact it can have, both physically and mentally. Having worked with people struggling with mental illness and physical limitations, I have seen first hand the transformative power of this healing art. I firmly believe that it should be accessible to everyone!

Aside from yoga, I am also a musician and a composer and I love sharing experiences through the arts.”
