First Mysore Ashtanga class

Attended my first Mysore Ashtanga class today at my local yoga studio – Yogajo’s – 90 minutes of no teacher guidance (save for this Ashtanga Primary series poster by Michael Gannon which studio-owner Jo gave me and fellow Mysore newbie Mhairi to share).

I’ve practised yoga at home before without a dvd or book but maybe only for 30-40 minutes. 90 minutes was something of a revelation – to have the time – uninterrupted by child/hubby/pets/phone/doorbell etc was great and i was a full-on sweaty mess by the end of class. I don’t know all the postures yet and there are some i’m just too stiff at present to master but they’ll come in time i’m sure.
