Introductory Classes

Everyone is welcome at our introductory classes, whether you are a complete beginner or have experience in other forms of yoga.  If you have not practiced for some time, they make an ideal refresher course.

These classes will give you a steady and thorough introduction to the foundations of Ashtanga Yoga. You will build strength, flexibility and focus by connecting breath and movement in a sequence of postures (asanas) from the Primary Series.

 For optimum results, we recommend undertaking 2 classes per week for 4 weeks. You can commence the 4 weeks of training at anytime as the course is flexible.

 Theres no need to commit to a particular day or time, you may attend any class at your level, any day of the week.

FAQ

 

How is Ashtanga different from other kinds of yoga?

Ashtanga is a form of yoga than synchronises flowing movement with the breath (vinyasa), using a set sequence of postures (asanas) which you will eventually know by heart.

Which level should I choose?

Even if you have done yoga before, we recommend enrolling for Level 1, so you can become familiar with the sequence of postures. At the end of your first class, you can decide with your teacher which level is best for you.  

 

When can I start

You can start your four week course at any time.   You may choose to attend one, two or three classes per week, and you may attend any class at your level on the timetable, on any day of the week.

I'm not very flexible and I can't touch my toes - can I still do Ashtanga Yoga?

Yes, certainly.  Ashtanga is a powerful way of developing flexibility and strength.

What should I wear? 

Ashtanga Yoga is a dynamic practice, and you can expect to get hot. Dress in light, comfortable clothes that don't restrict your movement.

Do I need a mat?

Mats are available at the studio for everyone to use. If you have your own mat, please bring it along, especially if you are inclined to sweat heavily.  We also have good quality mats available to buy at the studio.

Food and water 

Please come to class with an empty stomach and well hydrated. Please don't bring water bottles into practice rooms.

Health and safety

Please tell the teacher before the class begins about any injuries or if you are pregnant.
