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.

GAGA/People Classes for November

Saturday November 4th from 2:30 PM – 3:45 PM with James Viveiros

Saturday November 18th from 2:30 PM – 3:45 PM with Laura Toma

Cost: $16 plus tax

Gaga is a movement language which Ohad Naharin developed over the course of many years and which is applied in daily practice and exercises by the Batsheva Dance Company members.  The language of Gaga originated from the belief in the healing, dynamic, ever-changing power of movement, and it continues to evolve today.

Gaga is a new way of gaining knowledge and self-awareness through your body. Gaga provides a framework for discovering and strengthening your body and adding flexibility, stamina, and agility while lightening the senses and imagination. Gaga raises awareness of physical weaknesses, awakens numb areas, exposes physical fixations, and offers ways for their elimination. The work improves instinctive movement and connects conscious and unconscious movement, and it allows for an experience of freedom and pleasure in a simple way, in a pleasant space, in comfortable clothes, accompanied by music, each person with themselves and others.

Gaga has two tracks: Gaga/people and Gaga/dancers.

« Mindfulness is not a tool, it’s a path » – Thich Nhat Hanh

In this intro to meditation 8-session workshop, we will start unfolding what mindfulness means. Every evening will be divided between talks about the teachings, and practice. We will discover some of the main teachings, like the 4 noble truths, the eightfold path and the brahma viharas. We will then get a sense of what they mean through our own experience, practicing in many different ways.
