In a Guided (or led) Class of Primary Series, the teacher calls out the postures and counts the vinyasas ( movements linking the postures with the breath) of the Ashtanga Primary Series without giving detailed instructions concerning the poses. All students move and breathe together in syncronisation.
A Guided Class is effective in taking from students the patterns of a wandering mind, losing the connection with the breath, or fidgeting between postures.
Attending weekly Guided Class will provide you with the opportunity to improve your endurance and to refine your practice by following the count, as traditionally taught in Mysore.
In order to attend the Guided Class of Full Primary Series it is requested to be familiar with the practice of Ashtanga Yoga.
The class starts every Friday (except Full and New Moon) at 7:00a.m. sharp and lasts around 90 minutes.
