Paula Evans, a registered yoga teacher and owner of Rise Yoga Studio, is leading daily Ashtanga vinyasa yoga classes, suitable for all abilities and experience levels. This is a flowing style of yoga that connects the movement of the body with the breath. Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and Sri T. Krishnamacharya developed Ashtanga during the 20th century.
“A Mysore-style class is named after the city of Mysore, in India, where Jois lived and taught until 2009. It is the traditional way to learn Ashtanga,” explains Evans. “Students work at their own pace with a teacher. This is ideal for everyone, from beginners to dedicated students.”
The classes are structured so that students can choose a start time that works best for them within the scheduled class time. Beginners should allow for 30 to 60 minutes. “There is no set start time—when you arrive, your practice begins,” Evans explains. “Visiting students with an existing Ashtanga practice are welcome to drop in. Students of all levels will be supported and challenged.”
