All of our Centered Flow Yoga classes are based on Classical Yoga – a non-dogmatic approach to the rich tradition of yoga practices. It is based on a correct understanding of the nature and purpose of the different practices, be they asana, breath, or others. This understanding helps inform the approach of the particular practice, which goes past the mere physical effect and presentation to the subtle aspects. These gross to subtle elements, principles, are well explained by the tradition of yoga, which can be interpreted as its scientific base. This is how yoga has survived over the millenia, through correct understanding of the nature of practices, learning them well and continuing practice. Classical Yoga maintains integrity by staying true to these aspects.
Mysore and More- Guided Self-Practice Mysore style is the self-practice of the poses of the ashtanga vinyasa system, a very thorough approach to the practice of asana. The sequence begins with basic postures, later opening up and revealing its depth as students continue to practice. The Mysore approach works with students individually, so that they progress according to their level. A beginner starts with only a few poses, gradually adding more and more as your practice develops and your proficiency and commitment evolve. This ensures that the student is always challenged and growing while, at the same time, practicing at the level appropriate for you.Â This is also suitable for those learning/practicing hatha or flow style self practice.
Ashtanga Vinyasa is a beautiful yet thorough approach to asana practice. It is rooted in a solid tradition and carries with it this strength of many years. Ashtanga Vinyasa is the basis of so many modern yoga approaches. It masterfully presents the asanas and lets the students move through them, growing and undoing the blocks they encounter. It incorporates movement with breath, a unique science in its own right. Its real advantage is that it gives the student a practice and something to always progress and develop in. Paul and the teachers are highly experienced in this practice. Paul, specifically, was one of a few in the world directly certified at the advanced level by the late Sri. K.
