Ashtanga Mysore Program in Espoo with Alex Lemberg
What is Mysore style practice?
Mysore style practice is a self-paced practice with one on one teaching, but in a group setting. This is the traditional way of practicing ashtanga yoga.
This means that you need to remember your own practice, or be able to practice with the practice sheet of the asana sequence.
REQUIREMENT: The completion of an ashtanga yoga beginners course or a led class ashtanga yoga program. You must be able to start and finish the practice without the help of a teacher (sun salutations and finishing sequence).
Beginners in this self practice method are welcome to join and start learning this self-paced method of ashtanga yoga. This is the traditional way of practicing ashtanga yoga.
We will start the first session with talking about this practice philosophy, and any questions you may have will be answered. After the intro we start practicing.
We start by learning a short asana practice, and keep adding in more asanas and practices during the progress of the course.
In best cases you can see more strength, endurance, flexibility and maybe improved bodily functions and/or wellbeing already after a few months of regular practice.
- Ashtangis who have completed a beginners course in ashtanga yoga (or similar), and want to start learning the Mysore method.
- Ashtangis who already practice Mysore style.
Meet your teacher
Alex is a Swedish-speaking Finn who started to practice yoga at home in 2013, and has been practicing and teaching hatha and vinyasa yoga since 2014 (Seasonal Yoga). During the summer of 2015 Alex fell in love with the depth of the ashtanga yoga practice in 2015 with his teachers in Helsingin Astanga Joogakoulu in their summer camp in Houtskari (Petri Räisänen & Juha Javanainen). Since then Alex has been teaching over 3000 hours of yoga classes with a wide range of people, while managing Raseborgs Yogaskola, and has actively been practicing with different world renowned teachers on different workshop, such as Eddie Stern, Kino McGregor, Simon Borg-Olivier, and also online courses with David Garrigues.
“To me it’s important that the practices are taught in a safe, healthy and effective way for each student. As a yoga teacher it is important to understand that all people are different, and to embrace, or celebrate, the movement patterns of each individual.
In my teaching style you will learn to turn your senses inward (pratyāhāra), you will improve your focus and learn to practice to the rhythm of your own breath. The meditation and concentration makes the practice meaningful, and is a gateway to your inner dimensions. A yoga practice should be a practice in concentration and meditation. In ashtanga and hatha yoga we use our bodies to practice and achieve this.
We start simple, and the more you practice, the more you will learn at your own ideal pace while your body becomes stronger and softer, and your mind becomes more focused.”
