Pike Yoga

ATTITUDE • MATITUDE • GRATITUDE

At Pike Yoga, we believe that EVERYONE needs yoga. Yoga is the one practice that complements all other exercise programs. Whether practiced daily or once a week, yoga will produce considerable benefits.

Our philosophy, "Attitude. Matitude. Gratitude." comes from our practice of yoga. 

Most of us come to class with some form of an attitude, and not necessarily in the negative sense. Our attitudes can arise from frustration, guilt, anger, fatigue, loneliness, excitement, urgency, contentment, or any number of other feelings. So then, we come to the mat and practice; we begin to work through these outside distractions. 

Yes, it's a made up word. Matitude is simply being present--there on the mat--with the breath, the mind, and the body. Matitude is dynamic--always changing, always evolving. It is the practice of being who it is that you are supposed to be. 

The final component is gratitude. This is where the intention of your practice is absorbed. It is finding light in darkness, quietness in chaos--simply being thankful.

WHAT IS MYSORE?
Mysore is a format of Ashtanga Yoga. Mysore style yoga class is a tradition passed down from Sri K. Pattabhi Jois as taught in the southern Indian city of Mysore. Instruction is not “led” as a group but individualized for each student.

CLASS STRUCTURE:The practice always begins with 3-5 of both A & B sun salutations. This is followed by the same sequence of standing postures. Next the postures are seated postures. At this point you may see students skipping postures or going to second series. Remember it’s an individual practice. But no matter what series the student is following, closing starts with a backbend/bridge and the same sequence of postures shoulder stand, headstand etc. Finally there is a 10 minute corpse pose. If a student finishes their practice early, they practice at least a ten minute corpse pose before quietly leaving. Most students practice for 1 1/2 hours however students who are on a tight schedule or have an injury often practice a partial part of the sequence which may take 45 minutes or so.

HOW AM I GOING TO REMEMBER ALL OF THAT?
Don’t worry you do not need to know the sequence (cheat sheets are available). Never hesitate to call a teacher over that’s what the teacher is there for.
