1) Introduction to Ashtanga 5 week course
This is a five week absolute beginner’s course designed to guide you step by step into the traditional method of ashtanga yoga.
The focus will be on understanding the fundamental techniques and principles behind this method and on learning the beginning postures of the sequence, slowly and progressively, week by week. Suitable for everyone new to yoga and also for any students who would like to start from scratch to learn the ashtanga sequence properly. This course is also ideal for anyone interested in Mysore classes to get to grips with the basics before they start.

2) Ashtanga Level 1
This 5 week course follows on from the introductory course, continuing progressively through the ashtanga sequence, with detailed instruction and demonstrations when needed. The basics learnt in the introductory course will be repeated and practiced with new elements added on each week. The most progress will be made if you attend the whole course, but drop in students are welcome to any single class, whether you are a new student wanting to try the classes out or whether you cant make it every week.

The intro workshop is a one-off workshop covering the fundamental postures and techniques of ashtanga as well as information on the background and history of this system of yoga. An ‘intro to mysore’ workshop is geared specifically towards starting morning self practice classes, but works equally well as a general introduction for anyone new to ashtanga.
The next ‘intro to mysore’ workshop is on Saturday, 23rd June, 14:00 – 16:30. Book here.

3) Private tuition
Private lessons are available during the day throughout the week, and some Saturdays, for one-to-one tuition.
I got into Ashtanga after trying out different forms of yoga. Following on from the beginner’s course with Cathy I went on to try Mysore and became hooked. Ashtanga is a strong and often challenging practice but with regular practice and the invaluable knowledge and friendly encouragement from Cathy, slowly but surely I made progress, and after 3 years I still am! There are all different levels of students in the class which helps with motivation and inspiration. I love the energy that comes from the Mysore classes. What better way to start your day!
