How about a title?
Having practised one form of yoga or another on and off for years, being introduced to Ashtanga and Mysore was a revelation to me. The flow of the practice and its synchronicity with the breath is one of its most potent aspects. The rhythm is mesmerising.
Initially, I found the idea of attending a mysore class slightly intimidating. I thought it might be difficult or distracting to be in a room full of people practising different asanas at different times together, but it was not like that at all. You still have the benefit of a group energy but the freedom to practise at your own pace.
Mysore is also an amazing way of getting focused feedback on your practice in particular. You learn so much! I really like the way Cathy manages to create a relaxed yet supportive environment. For me, she has a reassuring, patient and encouraging presence.
After having tried various yoga classes on and off over the years, I have now been able to find a focus for my practise with Cathy’s led and Mysore instruction. I have genuinely noticed improvements to my physical and mental well being since attending Cathy’s classes. Her Mysore instruction, as a consequence of practising at one’s own pace, adopts a very hands on approach which I have found particularly helpful.
I had tried a couple of different yoga classes in the past but found they didn’t suit me. I decided to try the Ashtanga style of yoga and attended Cathy’s ‘Introduction to Ashtanga’ workshop and I’m glad I did. I feel safe in Cathy’s classes and leave feeling calmer and more energised. I look forward to each class and have been inspired to combine her led beginners classes with home practice and investigating Ashtanga philosophy further.
