Celebrating 3 months in our Finnieston yoga studio with more new classes and workshops!
It’s been 3 months since we moved to our new studio in The Hidden Lane and we hope you’re enjoying practice there as much as we are!
I must admit it was a struggle to get the studio ready on time and we’re still working on the details, but the space is always warm and cosy and has such a lovely vibe when everyone is in there practising.
As you know our intention is to create a dedicated ashtanga studio – where possible keeping in line with the way things are done in Mysore and staying true to the tradition of Sri K Pattabhi Jois. read more…
In this workshop we will explore the importance of foundation to create length, space, and ease of movement in every posture.
Just as a tree with strong roots grows healthy and tall, by cultivating our roots our asana practice will flourish.
Postures revolve around pairs of opposites (grounding/ lengthening, strength/softness, drawing back/reaching forward). Striking the perfect balance between the two, by understanding our roots and by staying connected to our centre, allows us to find freedom and grace in every posture. read more…
Mysore-style is the traditional way to learn Ashtanga Yoga. (As taught in Mysore, India, where the practice originated).
Mysore classes allow for students to develop their own self practice, learning and memorising the sequence bit by bit. It is the safest, most effective method of learning ashtanga yoga.
The introduction to Mysore workshop is aimed at complete beginners to ashtanga as well as students who have experience of led classes but would like to transition to morning self-practice. The next workshop will take place on Sunday 19th November with Gem Maryan. read more…
Would you like to learn Ashtanga Yoga? Perhaps you are completely new to yoga and would like to start but you aren’t sure where. This is a great introduction to Yoga and the Ashtanga Yoga practice. No yoga experience is required, just an open mind and enthusiasm and we will teach you the rest.
We are a really lovely small studio based in The Hidden Lane in Finnieston, Glasgow and we specialise in Ashtanga Yoga. You won’t get lost in large class sizes as numbers are limited. We are a small team of passionate yoga teachers and we would love to help you learn this incredible practice and be a part of your yoga journey.
Our next course for individuals new to yoga starts on Wednesday, 11th October 2017. Find out more about getting started with yoga.
Every last Friday of the Month 6.30am start
Led Class at the KPJAYI in Mysore, India
At the shala in Mysore we have self practice classes 4 days a week and led classes 2 days, with one rest day. Traditionally the rest day was always Saturday, Friday was led primary series day and Sunday, for those on second series – led intermediate. (For logistical reasons this has now been changed in the main shala – rest day is now Sunday, led primary is Saturday, led intermediate Monday)
At Ashtanga Yoga Glasgow, we do our best to uphold KPJAYI traditions. We observe moon days as rest days, on Fridays we practise primary series only, and once a month, last Friday of the month, we have a primary series counted led class.

“The full ashtanga system practiced with devotion leads to freedom within one’s heart.”
A dynamic, physically challenging practice, following a set sequence of postures. Deep steady breathing synchronised with the postures creates a purifying internal heat, which burns away toxins, resulting in a strong, light body and a calm mind. With dedicated practice over a period of time comes the potential to transform your life, not just physically, but mentally, emotionally and spiritually too.
