The Yoga Shala is located in the heart of Winter Park, Florida. The 2,100-square-foot studio includes a men and womens locker room, two restrooms, a large practice room, a private client room, and a retail boutique, featuring Beyond Yoga, Manduka, Love This Life, Be Love, and much more.
The Yoga Shala offers daily yoga classes in the traditional Ashtanga Mysore yoga method, which is the safest, most effective way to learn yoga. In Mysore style classes, the students work individually with the instructor to learn Ashtanga yoga.
Building their practice in a group setting, the students learn yoga postures one by one, and as each yoga posture is mastered, the students will gradually build up his or her practice. The focus of our individualized method is on personalized yoga instruction. Imagine a private yoga lesson in a group setting.
This method of yoga instruction is the way that yoga is taught by Shri K. Pattabhi Jois and Sharath Rangaswamy in Mysore, India, and why it has come to be known as Mysore style teaching.
Traditionally, Ashtanga yoga is recommended to be practiced daily. For busy Americans, this can be a huge commitment, but the benefits of a weekly yoga practice can spill into all areas of a yogis life.
The Yoga Shala has two levels of membership: 3 days per week or monthly unlimited. As in India, the students at The Yoga Shala are asked to make a monthly commitment and come to class 3 to 6 days each week.
