ONLINE Mysore Ashtanga

Tuesdays & Thursdays 7 – 9am PST

Mysore style practice is the self-paced, traditional forum for studying Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. Our approach to the practice is inviting and personalized. 
Leigha Nicole will observe you practicing from the comfort of your home and will offer feedback in breakout rooms.  She will also offer a 15 minute one-on-one practice consult to anyone seeking further guidance.  See her note below.




Message from Leigha about online Mysore Ashtanga:

I truly hope you and your families are safe and that through the sheltering and uncertainty you have been able to utilize a few of the yogic tools in your spiritual tool box.  Nothing like the discomfort of the unknown to push us toward resurrecting focusing and centering techniques we have acquired along our yogic path.
I have MISSED you all so much and wished I could have been there in person this summer.
It seems we have entered a whole new paradigm!  The pandemic has brought the global yoga community online and so, has caused me to cogitate deeply about what is needed now and how I can perhaps be of service.
What has given me incredible joy and fulfillment over my 36 years of yoga teaching is the intimacy and connection shared between myself and student friends from all over the world on and off the mat.  In the absence of healing touch and in-person communion, I am excited to be offering interactive “Mysore with Practice Consult” classes through The Mindful Body starting this Tuesday 5/26.  These 2 hour Mysore-style classes will start with chanting the mantram and maybe a few sutras then, during the course of the class there will be verbal cues and practice tips given privately by me in ‘Break Out Rooms’.  Also, included in the price of each class is an optional 15 minute yoga practice consultation with me via FaceTime or Zoom at a time of your convenience post class.  These ‘consults’ can consist of anything you wish: Q and A, adding a new pose to your series or discussing anything that came up during class.  It is my sincere hope that anyone who is interested in this will take advantage of a little practice chat.  This will be fun for me and I can’t wait to hear how everyone is getting along with home practice.
I hope you will join me in exploring this new virtual world of togetherness and connectivity.  
Sending love and peace to you all.
Om Shanti


Leigha has been teaching yoga since 1984 and taught at YogaWorks in Santa Monica, California starting when it opened its doors in 1987. It was through YogaWorks and The Iyengar Yoga Institute of Los Angeles that she had the opportunity to study with senior teachers from all over the globe. Her love of Ashtanga Yoga brought her to India to study extensively with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, and was authorized to teach by him in 1996. In the West, she was fortunate to have Tim Miller as her main teacher for over 25 years. Leigha is also a certified Yoga Therapist with The International Association of Yoga Therapists and a continuing educator for Yoga Alliance.

Leigha has a gentle approach and is passionate about bringing precise alignment to the graceful movements of traditional Ashtanga Yoga that make it a “moving meditation”. She encourages students to embrace the contemplative aspect of the practice with attention to detail and the cultivation of awareness. Her teaching is infused with an intimate knowledge of anatomy that stems from a bodywork practice of over three decades, which enables her to address the specific therapeutic needs of her students.
