Ashtanga yoga is special in that connectedness is central to the learning process; our tradition is transmitted directly between people, a teacher and student. Our intention is to develop a personal practice, which you can cultivate life-long.
Mysore Melbourne is led by KPJAYI Level 2 Authorised teacher Amanda Ferris, who is now in her 20th year of daily practice. Amanda is a direct student of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, Sharath Jois, and Saraswati Jois. She has devoted many years to developing the awareness, patience, and experience to guide others in Ashtanga yoga.
If you would like to learn more about Ashtanga yoga and how it is taught, please come in and see us. Amanda is friendly, knowledgable and very happy to sit down and talk with you. There is more information for new students here.
Our Mysore program is conducted at Prana House, in Melbourne's inner northern suburb of Thornbury. Mysore-Style classes are offered on week days from 6:00am-8:30am. Saturday led class starts at 7:00am. We rest on Sundays. There is no class on full or new moon days.
Individual and small group lessons can be arranged by appointment. Rates start at $130 per hour and vary according to group size and location.
Spending time in nature teaches us to attune and align ourselves with natural cycles of energy occurring both within ourselves and in our environment. Half the work of yoga is this very thing - learning to move with, rather than fight life. At Mysore Melbourne, we are city dwellers and this practice is our daily work. We are nourished by an occasional break out of town, where we can be with trees and soft earth.
