If you live in Winnipeg or surrounding area and would like to learn more about Mysore – you can through this introductory workshop. You will find out if this is something for you. I highly recommend it. I’ve been at it for a little over 2 years and it’s the best thing ever. It’s the only practice I find that I have been able to stick with for so long. This and walking.

This workshop will introduce you to the how, what and why of Ashtanga Yoga and the Mysore style of teaching. Shivaun will discuss the merits of regular Mysore practice, the breathing, moving and concentration methods of Ashtanga Yoga, and answer questions. You will learn and practice the forms of the sun salutations and breathing exercises that are the foundations of practice.
This is an excellent opportunity for students who want to learn how to cultivate and maintain a personal yoga practice. Current Ashtanga/Mysore students will also find it helpful to refresh and refine the basics. No experience required.
Shivaun has been practicing Ashtanga Yoga for 12 years and teaching since 2008. She continues to practice regularly with her teacher, Jonathan Austman, and also studies with Richard Freeman and Mary Taylor in Boulder, Colorado. Shivaun works with students of diverse ages and abilities using Ashtanga Yoga as a tool to access each student’s individual potential.
Mysore is usually from 6-10:15 a.m. It’s great when I am going to work. I do my practice and then go to work. I am on holidays and getting out of bed in cold Winnipeg just for Mysore practice is challenging. I am happy when I get there but it’s getting there. This morning I got up, did my rituals. Moved a bit slower and the time slipped away. Good excuse to crawl back into bed and resolved to attend a much later led Ashtanga practice. Oh well I have my house to clean too. New year’s is almost here. Excuses, excuses. Have a happy day, enjoy good food and your life.
