BACK TO THE ROOTS WITH MYSORE STYLE ASHTANGA YOGA.

We are very happy to be offering a daily Ashtanga Mysore program with a Level 2 KPJAYI Authorized Ashtanga teacher at Jivamukti Yoga Berlin Mitte. After many years of hosting the world's leading international Ashtanga teachers for workshops here in Berlin, our Mysore program was established in 2015. The program is taught by Elinore Burke in Mitte.

In line with our quest for presenting you the most qualified teachers around, Elinore is one of the few Level 2 authorized Ashtanga Yoga teachers in Germany, let alone Berlin. With this added option for your daily yoga practice at Jivamukti Yoga Berlin Mitte, we are paying tribute to the Ashtanga yoga method which was most influential for Jivamukti Yoga co-founders Sharon Gannon and David Life and the development of their Jivamukti Yoga method.

▲▼ WHAT IS MYSORE STYLE ASHTANGA YOGA

Absolute Ashtanga Beginners Workshop Jivamukti

MYSORE-STYLE is the traditional self-practice method of ashtanga yoga. Mysore is named after the south Indian town in which the late K Pattabhi Jois, the founder of modern Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, taught from the late 1930s until his death in 2009.

In a Mysore class, the teacher works individually with the studentsone-to-one. Everyone is welcome! It is not necessary to know the sequence before coming to class. Complete beginners are taught correct breathing and how to connect this with movement(vinyasa)through the sun salutations. When they have learnt this, the teacher adds new posturesas the student is able to memorize the sequence.The teacher will remind you if you forget the sequence, as well as giving physical adjustmentsto better understand correct alignment.

You can drop into our Mysore class anytime between 7-9am and stay as long as you want. For beginners, this could be half an hour, and for the more advanced up to 2 hours.It is recommended to attend mysore classes 2 -3 times a week minimum. With time, the practice becomes a meditation in motion.

Absolute Ashtanga Beginners Workshop Jivamukti

ELINORE BURKE (teaching in Mitte from Sept. 3, 2017 on) has been a student of yoga since 1996 and teaching since 2004. Early on she trained in the Bihar Yogic Tradition of Northern India at the Banaras School of Yoga and later was captivated by the strength and grace of the Ashtanga form, her daily practice since 2001. She is a Level 2 Authorized teacher from KPJAYI in Mysore, India, where she began her study with the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in 2004. She returns there regularly to continue her study with his grandson, Sharath Rangaswamy. Additionally she is a Yoga Therapist certified through the Yogacampus, in London, UK, and a long-time practitioner of Vipassana (Mindfulness) Meditation.

Elinore first began teaching in Berlin where she created a Mysore program at the Yoga Shala running from 2005 until 2009 when she moved to London. There she ran the Mysore program at one of the oldest yoga studios, The Life Centre, from 2011 through 2015, as well as teaching at Europe's leading yoga studio, triyoga, also in London.

For Elinore, yoga is a support to connect with the unfolding of life more fully. She teaches traditional Ashtanga Yoga as it is taught to her in Mysore and is committed to passing on this knowledge to the practitioners coming to her classes. She lovingly guides students to connect with the process of self-exploration on their mats, helping to create greater self-awareness and self-realization.

In addition to the Jois family, she has been blessed to study with Richard Freeman, Eddie Stern, David Swenson, Nancy Gilgoff, Dena Kingsberg, Matthew Sweeney and Christopher Titmuss. She is grateful to all the teachers who have guided her along this yogic journey.

ASHTANGA PRIMARY SERIES LED CLASSES
Ashtanga LED Classes at Jivamukti Yoga Kreuzberg

As our Ashtanga program is so well received, we also offer an Ashtanga Led Class (Primary series) every Sunday 9:00am at Mitte.

ASHTANGA LED CLASSES are a great supplement to your daily practice. As led classes are counted through in strict vinyasa, you have to arrive on time (at least by 8:50am) in order to be able to take the class. The teacher calls out the postures and counts the corresponding breaths thus helping the students as a group to adjust the pace of their practice to the standard vinyasa count. Led classes are a great way to create more endurance and to learn and memorize the names of the postures and their sequencing within the 1st series.
