NEWS & UPDATES FROM CATHY
Sunday 5th March
Yoga Stops Traffick is a worldwide yoga event to raise awareness about human trafficking, and to raise funds for Odanadi Seva Trust- a non-governmental organisation based in Mysore, India. For 26 years Odanadi’s has rescued, housed, rehabilitated and supported women and children who have been victims of sexual violence and human trafficking. www.odanadi.org
The idea of Yoga Stops Traffick was thought up in 2010 by a group of volunteers in Mysore who wanted to help. It has become an annual event with the young residents of Odanadi’s joining yoga students for sun salutations outside Mysore Palace, and thousands of participants uniting to support them from all over the world!!
We will be holding our own event at PYM FINNIESTON and we would LOVE you to join us!! read more…
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.

NEW TO ASHTANGA YOGA?
GET STARTED WITH AN INTRO TO ASHTANGA WORKSHOP OR A BEGINNER’S FOUNDATION COURSE
“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.
