(Welcome! Welcome to the Mysore room at Bluebird Sky Yoga. We are happy to have you here! New Students: If you are new to the Mysore room, take some time to read about the class and the Ashtanga system. You may want to even peek at some of the sequence of postures. Your first day, the teacher will introduce herself to you and find out a little more about your prior yoga (if any) or movement history. This will help her tailor your first day to your specific needs.
New Students (who have an existing practice): You are welcome to join anytime! If you are practicing a series other than Primary, please practice Primary on your first day.
Traveling Students: You are welcome to come and practice with us! Please practice Primary only your first day in the studio.
Mysore Etiquette: Below you will find some studio etiquette guidelines as well as some guidelines that teachers will follow. Student etiquette: There are a number of websites that include rules for student etiquette in the Mysore Room. Here, and here are a couple of my favorites. What I want to focus on here is teacher etiquette. This can be a life-long practice for you and support you in many ways, but you need to feel comfortable in the room and respect your body, thus making it a supportive and healing practice, for it to be sustainable.
Below you will find some of our teacher/ student observances so we can maintain integrity and safety. Teacher etiquette:
All teachers and assistants in the room will be introduced on the website. You will know who is adjusting you.
All teachers and assistants have a regular practice and continue to learn through workshops and practice.
You do not have to receive adjustments. Teachers and assistants will ask permission before they adjust you.
If you feel any discomfort in an adjustment, please let the teacher or assistant know.
