Mysore Austin | Ashtanga Yoga


Ashtanga Yoga at Mysore Austin

Mysore Austin offers traditional Ashtanga Mysore and led classes daily for students of all levels. 

Mysore Austin provides instruction of the postures, vinyasas (movements) and breathing method of ashtanga yoga as taught by Sharath Jois in Mysore, India at the Sharath Yoga Centre.

As a student of Sharath Jois, instructor Andrew Bresnen strives to continue the traditional practice of sharing these methods, from teacher to student.

The foundation of our practice is the Mysore method. In Mysore classes, students receive individualized instruction to learn the Ashtanga sequence of postures step by step, advancing as they gain proficiency.


Ashtanga Yoga Classes

Mysore Ashtanga Austin


A new evening course to learn the ashtanga yoga practice in a small group, casual setting. 

 Students will be supported in a wholistic way, guided through asana practice, a bit of history, theory and self care.

Course details here.

No classes on full or new moon days.

Email for instructions to register. 

Mysore - Mysore is the method through which ashtanga is taught. There are no prerequisites (i.e. no experience required). Students may arrive anytime during the duration of the class as long as they are able to complete practice before close. Typical practices are between 45 and 90 minutes.

New Students - New Students will be taught in a one on one setting in the mysore room. There is no need to come with experience. The first weeks of practice focus on the foundations and students can expect a shorter practice. Slowly over time we will continue working on the sequence of postures in the primary series.

Led Primary - Guided, full primary series.

* Please contact the school before coming. New local students are required to sign up as members and to make a commitment to attend 3 classes a week minimum. All students must be registered prior to practicing.

Andrew Bresnen, PhD

Once a research medical physicist, Andrew found his true calling in the practice of Ashtanga yoga. Andrew began practicing yoga in San Antonio at Yoga Shala with his first teacher Ana Hollis.


In 2014 Andrew first travelled to India to study with his teacher Sharath Jois at KPJAYI (now SYC) in Mysore. During the year and half in India Andrew practiced at KPJAYI for two seasons and he received Level II Authorization and Sharath Jois's blessing to teach Ashtanga. Andrew returns annually to practice and assist in the shala in Mysore.

Andrew has taught students ranging from high school students to Tibetan monks at Sera monastery in India, where he lived teaching math and physics and practicing yoga.

Andrew's daily personal practice focuses on the asana (postures) and study of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Andrew believes in the transformative effects of practice and is able to inspire and encourage students in their work on the mat.




Ellie Ray

Ellie has been practicing ashtanga yoga since she took her first class over 10 years ago at a small yoga school in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Originally moving to Austin in 2021 to advance her career in Architecture and Development, she now creates space for students to feel empowered through their practice. 

 In addition to teaching mysore and led classes with Andrew, Ellie also facilitates the 6-week evening course "Intro to Ashtanga Yoga" as well as private classes and Mysore Austin's online program. 

In 2019 Ellie took her first trip to Mysore, India to practice at SYC and a second trip in 2023. Also while in India, Ellie has trained as a certified sound healer. She often hosts sound baths around rest days, providing a space for the yoga community to come together off the mat.
