Then the best way to start is in a Mysore Style class. Because there is no need to “keep up” with the other students in the class it can be a much safer and less stressful way to learn. You will be taught from the very beginning and the teacher won’t move on until he/she is sure that you have fully understood. Each student moves through the yoga practice at his or her own pace while the teacher keeps a watchful eye, instructing, correcting and encouraging as needed. It must be noted that the misconception that Mysore Style classes are only for students who have already established a regular yoga practice could not be further from the truth. On the contrary, the setting allows the student and teacher to work together at a much more personal level, which is ideal for beginners. So there is absolutely no need to be intimidated.
