Shala Ashtanga Yoga Centre, YEG | 4.5

Shala Ashtanga Yoga Centre is the first review we've ever done of a traditional Ashtanga yoga studio and a Mysore style class at that (where students practice independently at their own pace). And know this - as soon as we knew we were doing a Mysore style we were like...uhhhhhh. Even though I've been practising for over 15 years and Sydney and I go to a squillion yoga classes, we were still very intimidated. BUT - turns out there's no need to fret. We'll explain why going to a Mysore class as a beginner to Ashtanga might actually be the greatest thing ever and why this hidden sanctuary in the middle of downtown Edmonton is one of the greatest places to learn.
