Mysore Week with David Swenson

September 8 - 12   |    6:30am-8:45am each day
at Westgate

 

5-Session Mysore Program
In the traditional form of Ashtanga Yoga the practice is done under the guidance of a teacher in what is known as a Mysore-Style setting. This means that the students practice in silence flowing through their individual practice while the teacher moves around the space providing personal attention and care where needed. This method allows for more precise instruction and also provides the students the opportunity to move within their own capacity while also benefiting from the support and community energy of a group class environment.

There is a subtle beauty permeating the room during a Mysore-style practice. The sound of breathing and the occasional sound of the teacher speaking softly to a student while offering advice or support are the only sounds heard. There is a sense of focus and calm like that of water flowing in a stream. David has an especially refined ability to be aware of the entire room and seem to appear just at the right moments when the student most needs it to offer adept hands-on assistance or compassionate insights and verbal encouragement.


Cost: $175 ($195 after July 9th)



ABOUT DAVID SWENSON

David Swenson began practicing yoga at a very early age and is recognized today as one of the worlds foremost practitioners and instructors of Ashtanga Yoga. David's introduction to Ashtanga came in 1973 when he met David Williams and Nancy Gilgoff in Encinitas, California. In 1975 David and Nancy brought Sri K. Pattabhi Jois to the U.S. for the first time and at that point David then initiated studies directly with the master. Swenson made his first trip to Mysore in 1977 and learned the full Ashtanga system as it was originally taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. Today, David teaches thousands of students and teachers worldwide and has produced numerous videos, DVDs, and the popular book Ashtanga Yoga: The Practice Manual. He is known for his ability to encourage deep learning in an enjoyable environment, where fun and laughter are more than acceptable.

David Swenson began his journey of Yoga in 1969 when he and his brother Doug practiced in a small park at the end of their street in Houston, Texas. There were few sources for yoga at that time so they practiced from whatever books they could find.

In 1973 David discovered Ashtanga after he met David Williams and Nancy Gilgoff in Encinitas, CA. In 1975 David and Nancy brought K. Pattabhi Jois to the U.S. for the first time and Swenson was fortunate enough to be there. He then initiated studies directly with the master. He made his first trip to Mysore in 1977. David is one of only a handful of Westerners to have learned the full Ashtanga system including all of the asana sequences and pranayama as originally taught by K. Pattabhi Jois.

Today David is recognized as one of the world's foremost practitioners and instructors of Ashtanga Yoga. He tirelessly travels year round to teach and offer workshops. His courses are presented in a supportive and compassionate fashion making it accessible to all levels of practitioner to participate.
