Mysore is the city in India where the founder of the Ashtanga method, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, lived and taught for many decades before his passing in 2009. His grandson, Sharath Jois, and Sharath's mother Saraswati, are carrying on the legacy at the Sri K.Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute.
To practise Mysore-style is to practise the Ashtanga yoga asana series by moving at the pace of your own breath. Students learn postures at a rate appropriate for the individual, receiving one-on-one instruction in the postures and hands-on adjustments from a teacher. This class is the best method for brand-new students as well as experienced Ashtanga practitioners that is offered in Calgary, Alberta.

“What a tiny gem of a yoga studio, the space is beautiful but the real draw is Janet who is an amazing Ashtanga Yoga Teacher, with a depth of knowledge. The Mysore Program is what I am doing and can say it is authentic.”
"More motivated than ever"
“I signed up to AYC hoping to dive deeper into Ashtanga, but what I got was vastly more. I learned efficiencies and breath control, I overcame roadblocks in postures and saw new ways to approach them. I learned about dedication and discipline. I learned about laughing at myself and not taking things too seriously. Best of all, I get to be a part of an amazing community of yogis.
Janet has given me confidence to challenge myself both on and off the mat and I have seen dramatic results. I'm more motivated than ever before to practice. If you have the chance, don't miss coming to AYC!.”
"I love Ashtanga Yoga Calgary"
“I love Ashtanga Yoga Calgary - Janet Hawkins is an inspiration to all of us. She supports all her students in a loving way with just the right amount of discipline and flexibility to allow for the individual's needs.”
