Jaiprakash teaches Primary Series, Intermediate Series and Advanced Series of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. It is the spiritual method of practice first introduced by Krishnamachari and further developed by P. Jois and BNS Iyengar of Mysore. This method is physically demanding and the practitioner uses ujjayi breathing with asanas and vinyasa flow to connect individual postures. The combination of ujjayi breathing with vinyasa flow creates heat in the body which leads to purification through increased circulation and sweating. Additionally, Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga improves flexibility of the muscles, joints, ligaments and tendons. Through a consistent practice, the student can improve overall health and vitality and reduce the risk of injury.
“Mysore Style” means that students practice at their own pace with an expert supervisor providing individual attention for adjustments. This type of consideration allows for the personal transformation of each student with their own rhythm. Small classes (under 15 students) allow each student to evolve according to their own personal development.
