St. Louis, finally we have great 6:30 AM Mysore Ashtanga Yoga!

Centered breathing, focused gaze, tightened core, and ordered movements are one of the best ways to start the day. This is what Mysore Ashtanga yoga is all about. For me it was one of the last pieces to fall into place for a balanced life in St. Louis after I left wonderful Houston. When the legendary Kim Spearmon moved to the studio on McCausland and Clayton and moved her class to 6:30 AM, I was more than ready to join.


Kim Spearmon, always smiling, legendary teacher

I could tell you what is special about independent practice with Mysore yoga, nicely balanced with a led class on Fridays. I could tell you how great Kim is, with her gentle, kind leadership and attentive adjustments. This is a yoga you can embrace at all levels, including my own stiff, inflexible, unbalanced one.

Here’s the schedule for this place, with Kim in the early morning spot. I hope to see you there! Come in with mind all a jumble, breathing disordered. Leave in peace, abs naturally tightened, ready to make the most of your day.
