Mysore Program

The Mysore Program at Prana Das is available six days per week. Students arrive for any duration of time in the allotted window and begin an individual practice. The room is silent, and Elizabeth is present to guide and support the students as they journey through the series, learn new postures and develop their own relationships with Ashtanga Yoga.

This is the only program of its kind in our area. 

What is Ashtanga?

Ashtanga Yoga emphasizes multiple techniques that ultimately result in a moving meditation. These techniques are breath (pranayama), energy locks (bandhas), and gazing points (drishti). Students of Ashtanga yoga can learn to still the mind through consistent and dedicated daily practice. Ashtanga Yoga is taught Mysore style; which means each person practices individually but enjoys the company of other students in the room. The teacher offers individualized instruction and adjustments to each student. Ashtanga Yoga emphasizes krama (progression) and vinyasa (breath and movement connection). Each student is taught at his or her own pace with consideration of each individual’s health, age, level of life responsibilities, and other relevant factors.

About Elizabeth Sitzler, Mysore Director

Elizabeth is a devout student, practitioner and teacher of Ashtanga Yoga. Her main teachers are Jörgen Christiansson and Sharath Jois.

While she was studying history and political science, applying to law school, and competing as a Division 1 tennis player, her father persuaded her to try yoga for the first time; thinking it might help her manage stress. The dynamism of the practice instantly drew her in and she quickly fell in love with the beauty of linking movement, breath, and mindfulness. Soon enough, she was practicing yoga every day; experiencing positive transformations in mind, body, and spirit.

As she delved deeper in the practice she discovered Sri K Pattabhi Jois’ Ashtanga Yoga, the Ashtanga Yoga School of Philadelphia, and her first teacher: David Garrigues. The integrity and structure of the Ashtanga Yoga system was a perfect and natural fit for her. Elizabeth taught at and helped run David’s School, AYS Philadelphia, from 2013-2017. Elizabeth is always a student, striving to learn more about her self, the practice, and how she can guide others through their own journey
