We have had a lot of new students start in my Mysore program this Fall. I love new students. They are so much fun to work with and the possibilities are endless.
I remember my first time practicing Mysore. I was terrified - I had no idea what I was doing. Everyone seemed so serious! Class was in a basement, it was dark and early. But I loved it! For the rest of the week I studied my primary series book on the metro at 5:30am on my way to practice, determined not to mess up. It took me a while to realize that messing up is part of the process.
Thankfully, things have gotten a bit easier for me since then. I made this little video to help all of you know what to expect the first time you visit a Mysore class. I hope you (or your students) find it helpful.
And what to do if you don't have a Mysore program in your hood? My Intro to Ashtanga Video of course!
