This system of yoga is taught individually to each student. You will learn how to move to the best of your ability while synchronizing your movements with your breath. This requires you to do some memorization of the sequence allowing you to move at your own pace. Eventually the instructor will not have to help you to remember the next pose and you will be able to move with complete independence. When you are free to go at your own pace you will develop a deeper connection to your body and the effects of the practice on your body. Practicing this way allows you to slow down and notice your difficult areas which can lead to a greater understanding of your conditions. If you are not practicing with your mind then you are not forming a mind-body connection as quickly. Mysore yoga requires you to actively participate in this practice with both your body and mind working together to understand the intricate nature of your conditions. We all have different scars and traumatic events that have left marks on our physical, emotional and spiritual bodies. We must each work to unwind these patterns of tension as individuals.
