Hi All,

I want to learn Yoga in Mysore, As i am staying and working in Mysore ,I am interested in learning Yoga methodology especially pranayam and bit of ashtanga yoga. Particularly interested in Yoga for revitalizing energy levels and general Health.

If you know of any good yoga practitioners who i could approach, please provide me the details. I don't want to go to the ultra expensive USD billing guru's.

Thanks in Advance!!!

Warm Regards
Balion

Hi Balion

I'm looking for a yoga teacher and some friends have told me Mysore is the place to go. Have you found any good yoga teachers in Mysore (not ultraexpensive gurus )?

Hi,

Sorry for late reply, MYSORE is the best place for YOGA, you will find many affordable YOGA GURUS, many people come here to learn yoga, great city to live and people come here again and again such is the charm of this city, but for me MONEY is a luxury i don't have .

Warm Regards
Balion

Second Rajared's recommendations have heard from locals that these are the best places in Mysore for Ashtanga Yoga.

Allan Little's Mysore Diary is an incredible read and has been around for a long time. It also contains links about general life in Mysore etc:

Alan Little Mysore Yoga Diary
Alan Little Mysore Yoga Links

My own yoga teacher has studied with Venkatesh, who is featured on this page amongst other mysore yoga teachers:
Info on Mysore Yoga Teachers

These sites have been invaluable when I've been researching Yoga in Mysore.

G'day All, just discovered this site and am amazed at the amount of information being shared! Haven't been to India for 15 years but am planning to return this year and hopefully study Ashtanga in Mysore (along with a multitude of others it would seem!). Have read through a stack of question and replies on the forum and thanks to all who have contributed, especially Caffiend whose links proved most informative. Hoping that this thread stays alive so I can glean more info. Anyone presently studying in Mysore please keep contributing with regards to reputable centres, cost of courses, availability of places, and also any info on price and availability of accommodation for a 4 to 6 month stay.
Many Thanks Al

Thanks for the links.

Would 4-6 weeks be too short to study Astangha with Guruji in Mysore?

I am rather new to yoga (done astangha for 6 months), but I guess that is not a problem.

I was actually considering doing 4-6 week retreat, in order to do more of Yoga then asana, but canīt make up my mind. Any comments on this.

I am leaving start of May.

I've been doing ashtanga for a year and a half and I'm too intimidated to go to the ashtanga institute.
I'm looking at yogaindia-it looks good, i like the small class sizes.
I'm considering whether I should do the foundation course, I would consider myself an intermediate student (as in of the primary series, I can 'do' 99% of the postures, but not beautifully by any stretch of the imagination).
Has anyone done the TTC here? is it very demanding in its expectations?

Hi Jennifer,

Talked with the owner (Marie) from Anokhi Garden Guest House & Cafe (nice place btw.), she has been going to Yoga India and enjoyed it a lot.

I am going by tomorrow to see the place and have a chat with Bharath. Also looking at Mystic School.

Regards

I studied for a while with Sheshadri - http://www.sheshadri.com/, formerly a teacher from the Mysore Mandala. He teaches Jois style Ashtanga, classes are mainly self-led style but quite challenging. He is a great teacher.

Also Mysore Mandala is worth a look, especially if one is interested in pranayama, philosophy of yoga, etc. Wide range of options. They are near Double Tank. Their website is mandala.ashtanga.org

Jennifer - I recommend Mandala over the Ashtanga Institute. It's quite overpriced and more for the famous name. Crowded classes and you will not get any one-on-one attention. This is just the reputation, I haven't been myself.

Cheers

I am afraid, all these places are quite expensive, esp. the month-long teacher training ones. Any other suggestions? Where can one find individual attention, wonderful teaching but at a reasonable price?

Thanks

curiously -I have been studying with Santosh at Yoga Darshanam in Mysore for the last couple months. Mainly Hatha style, but it's a small school with mainly Indian students (and Indian prices). You will get a lot of one-on-one attention and guidance with your program. The website is www.yogadarshanam.org. Just thought I'd put in a plug for my teacher.

What is the cost

Hi Candycanegirl and any one who can quote a actual price (Rps) so can get an idea if feasable.Was thinking of going to Rishikesh but there prices have gone up.Intrested in Hatha yoga for around about a month. None of the mentioned sites give cost (not that I could find)
Any advice is welcome
Many thanks
