This is a beginner class where poses flow from one to another in conjunction with the breath. Students are taught the basics of yoga: grounding, breath, focus of the mind, and the exploration of the opening of the body.
MYSORE & ASHTANGA VINYASA
Mysore Style is the traditional way Ashtanga Yoga was taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and continues to be taught by his grandson R. Sharath in Mysore, India. At ECHOYoga we are grateful and honored to have the privilege to study and teach this method. We dedicate our teaching to this lineage.
In a Mysore Style class each student is taught individually as part of a group and practices up to a point in the sequence according to their ability and experience, and as the postures are given by the teacher. Advanced and beginner students practice side by side within the same class. New poses are given by the teacher as the student becomes ready. The teacher gives hands on adjustments to assist students with alignment and to move deeper into poses. Mysore style classes give yoga practitioners the chance to focus on the rhythm of their own breath, synchronizing it with movement and postures in a meditative way.
At ECHOyoga, students learn the fixed order of postures, building one by one from the previous posture as an assisted self-practice with hands on adjustments. With daily practice, and through the breath, the body receives the knowledge and spirit from the asana; and the mind, body and soul will be connecting and healing organically by itself. Students are given the practice within the system, according to their ability, for their needs, and for their personal healing. It is a deep therapy that accommodates everyone, of all levels, even those without any prior yoga experience, from beginner to advanced. By teaching the Mysore style of Ashtanga Vinyasa, ECHOyoga wants students to become independent in their practice by allowing the method and practice to be the true teacher.

This is a calming and relaxing practice where participants yield to each pose, held for 3-5 minutes with relaxed muscles, allowing time and gravity to get deeper to the fullness of each pose. Poses target the deep connective tissues between muscular layers and those surrounding the joints. Yin Yoga is suitable for all levels and ages and is safe for pregnant women.

In Yoga philosophy, the virtue of generosity as a yogic responsibility reminds us that all beings live from the donations of others, as the world family, and that we are all connected. The action of giving back is a sincere sharing of wealth (money, talents, service) acquired by right means, and it is counted among the ten niyamas (the code of conduct) on the Yoga path.
in Sanskrit) is something necessary for continued development on the Yoga path. Community is nurtured through voluntary gatherings for service together where teachers and students can connect with each other while at the same time do something that makes the world a better place. Teachers offer their services for free.
ECHOyoga Workshops are specifically created for beginners to ground themselves in Yoga, and for specific conditions as yoga therapy. Watch out for our coming workshop schedules which will be done in partnership with other yoga studios.
