"Mysore" refers to the way Ashtanga Yoga is traditionally taught in its home city of Mysore, India. This program is one of Pure’s unique and specialized offerings.

In “Mysore” each student is taught individually; given a one-on-one lesson within a group class. This individual approach means Mysore classes are a perfect fit for new and longtime practitioners. Each and every student is guided and supported in an ongoing program that offers an incredible array of strength, flexibility, and flow resulting in a practice that detoxifies, balances, and strengthens both body and mind.

In Mysore class, each student is encouraged to memorize the breathing/movement sequence and develop an independent yet insightfully supported practice.
