Ashtanga Yoga is a dynamic, vigorous practice linking breath to movement through a progressive series of poses codified by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois of Mysore, India (1919-2009). Generating strong internal heat, it's known for it's ability to purify the body, mind, and spirit. Classes at Mountain Light Ashtanga are offered as individual instruction within a group setting, called Mysore-style after the way its taught at the Jois' institute. Instruction is tailored to each student, both verbally and through physical adjustments. Distinct from led classes in which the teacher sets the pace, students are able to find their own breath and rhythm, enabling a deeply meditative and powerful practice.
Classes are hosted at Yoga Indigo, a unique and intimate sanctuary in the heart of downtown Bend. Designed to welcome private and small-group lessons, it's a peaceful space perfect for supporting personalized instruction and growth.
