Ashtanga Yoga – is a system of Yoga popularized in modern times by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in the city of Mysore, South India. The name Ashtanga Yoga means “8 limbs” in Sanskrit. It is a reference to the 8-part method of practice in the ancient text, the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. In Patanjali’s method, the practice of asana or postures is one part of a comprehensive discipline of self knowledge and care including physical and mental training.
Ashtanga Yoga is a dynamic method of choreographed sequences of postures linked with breath and concentration techniques that aim to give practical experience of the 8-limbed method. Ashtanga Yoga is taught in two complementary formats, Mysore style or Led classes.

Mellow Times Yoga- Mellow times yoga is a light hearted/silly name for a seriously deep practice. It is Hatha yoga practice that is all about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching and relaxation. Restorative classes are very mellow, making them a good complement to more active practices and an excellent antidote to stress. It is designed to be accessible to every body, through modification of posses and use of props. Through modification and props (when needed) one can still receive the benefit of the posture because the body is free from efforting and straining! The body/practitioner feels safe and supported.
