We are thrilled to announce that the Brooklyn Yoga Club is bringing their Mysore program to Five Pillars! The practice will be taught by authorized level II Ashtanga Yoga teacher, Lindsay Hilscher, with special appearances on select Fridays made by Eddie Stern.

“Practice and all is coming.” Sri K. Pattabhi Jois 

What is Mysore?

Mysore is a supervised, self-guided daily Ashtanga yoga practice, which is a method of yoga that focuses on developing a personal practice, adapting a conscious lifestyle, and being open to self-transformation. Ashtanga yoga is a suitable practice for people who have never done any yoga before, and can continue to be a beneficial and challenging practice even after many years of learning it. The practice is based on a set routine of yoga postures and transitions originated by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in the city of Mysore, India. You can expect a somewhat “open studio” type of vibe, with people arriving throughout the morning and beginning their practice with the supervision and guidance of Lindsay. Students go at their own pace, tuning into their own abilities and body wisdom. Learn more about the history and details here

Who can come to Mysore?

Anyone who wants to learn! From complete beginners to experienced practitioners, students will be learning and relearning how to breathe, move and focus throughout the practice. The sequence is taught step by step so we are each able to memorize and develop our own daily practice.

This popular approach to yoga has many benefits including:

  • * Physical strength and muscle training
  • * Increased energy levels and mind-body connection
  • * Greater circulation and lymphatic flow
  • * Improved flexibility and range of motion
  • * Emotional and mental stability

Lindsay and Eddie will guide you through the techniques and movements of this deep, self-paced yoga practice. Enjoy your daily practice and #RightMovement that will leave you feeling strong, limber and energized!


All Levels Welcome

The school has recently moved to Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, where they continue to follow in the welcoming and inclusive teachings of Sri. K Pattabhi Jois and Sharath R. Jois. BKYC is thrilled to be partnering with Five Pillars Yoga to bring the practice of Ashtanga Yoga to the Upper East Side of NY! Classes will be taught by newly authorized teacher, Lindsay Hilscher, who has been a student of Eddie’s since 2014.
