Class Detail


Ashtanga Yoga is a traditional and dynamic yoga practice originating from Mysore, India. Ashtanga Yoga was developed and brought to the West by K. Pattabhi Jois and the lineage is now held by his grandson R, Sharath Jois. The Ashtanga Yoga practice follows a set sequence of postures, starting with sun salutations, moving through standing and then seated poses and closing with a finishing sequence. Ashtanga translates as eight limbs; referring to the eight limbs of yoga as outlined in Patanjali&rsquo’s Yoga Sutras. Asana, the third limb is the physical practice but through time and dedicated practice, the student begins to understand the other limbs and the meaning of yoga off the mat. Students progressively learn the Primary Series through a methodical approach where each student receives the utmost attention and individual adjustments and where the focus is given on the principles of alignment and breathing techniques. The atmosphere of the class induces the students to challenge themselves physically and emotionally while practicing in a safe, energetic and spiritual environment. As a wholeheartedly dedicated Yoga Instructor , I welcome students of all levels and from all paths of life, giving space and opportunity for physical and mental healing.


You will work through a set sequence of poses and synchronise your breath with each movement The sequence is called the Primary Series and the student will learn to use what is called “ujjay breath” throughout the practice. The combination of breath with movement, known as vinyasa, allows the body to build a therapeutic internal heat and this is what makes Ashtanga such a dynamic form of yoga.



A consistent practice will build a strong and stable body, purify the nervous system, calm the mind and improve blood circulation. While outwardly very physical, this practice is ultimately a spiritual one and in time offers reward on a much deeper level.
