YOGA w. AARON DICKERSON
Mysore Style Self Practice : Sundays : 8:30-9:45 am
This type of yoga class is an individual practice done in a group setting.  It is widely regarded as the best way to learn and practice Ashtanga yoga.  Here the instructor will teach each student a sequence of postures that challenges and develops strength and flexibility at a pace suited to the individual.  After becoming familiar with the sequence through repetition, the student is able to become self-sufficient and will be given adjustments as well as new options to progress as needed.  Think of it as getting a “private session” at a standard class price point.
Investment : $15 drop-in or OM Class Package
