We have a few options at Ashtanga Yoga Glasgow, for beginners yoga to help you get started:
1) Enrol in a beginners course or an intro workshop.
The ashtanga for beginners’ course runs in two 5 week blocks. In the first block we start from scratch and take you systematically through the techniques and sequence of the Ashtanga Primary series. Ashtanga yoga is an intense, flowing style of yoga in which the same poses are always done in the same order. The second block is about building on and maintaining what was learnt in the first 5 weeks. The next beginner’s course will start Wednesday 14th June. Buy a 5 or 10 class pass here and book each class on the timetable.
The intro workshop is a one-off afternoon 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 will take place on Sunday 16th July 2017. Book Here
2) Beginner’s course drop in option
Drop in students are welcome to the ashtanga for beginners course. We understand that you can’t always commit to the full course and this class is accessible for anyone just wanting to try ashtanga out. The second half of the course in particular will suit students not totally new to ashtanga who want to drop in to a beginners level class. We will go through the sequence with clear guidance and instruction throughout, making sure there are modified options for more challenging postures. With regular attendance you will soon progress! if you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me before coming along to class.
Ashtanga for Beginners takes place each Wednesday at 18:00 in The Movement Studio, 4 Ashton Lane, Glasgow, G12 8SJ.
3) Private tuition
I am available during the day throughout the week, and some Saturdays, for one-to-one tuition.
Please contact me directly to make an appointment.
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!
