I’m looking forward to once again hosting Philippa Asher and her wonderful teaching in 2022, this time over a long weekend in September !!
A chance to work closely and in a small group, with one of the few KPJAYI Certified Ashtanga yoga teachers. Following the traditional ‘guided self-practice’ method, you will have the opportunity to deepen and develop your asana technique and practice, whilst being guided through methods of approaching the more challenging postures.

“Philippa is indeed one of those rare teachers – in just a few days she can transform your practice and help you find a self confidence that was hidden before! I have practiced with Philippa several times in Glasgow and in India- Every time it is like I am starting all over again exploring and discovering new aspects of the practice that help me to go deeper and develop further on my yoga journey. Philippa has a unique joyful approach, disciplined and challenging at the same time- through constant encouragement she makes the impossible asanas possible! Practicing with her is a rare event and we are incredibly fortunate to have her in Glasgow once again! ” Francesca Pellicano
This will be my seventh workshop with Philippa. I deeply admire her knowledge of the practise and she is an excellent teacher. She will push you forward no matter which level you’re at and she will inspire you to see yoga as a life-time journey.
Philippa is a fantastic, kind, generous and knowledgeable teacher whose words of encouragement, delivered in an endearing and comedic way, have really helped and inspired confidence in my practice. I love going to Philippa’s workshop as they are motivational and inspiring, as well as being inclusive to all. Having attended many international teachers’ workshops over the years I can honestly say that Philippa is the best – in terms of the attention to detail, personal interaction and genuine, practical advice she goes above and beyond. She is now one of the few teachers I would sign up to without hesitation, and her workshops are worth every penny!
I have had the pleasure to practise with Philippa in Glasgow and at her shala in India; Both were amazing experiences that made my ashtanga practice stronger and richer. Philippa is an extremely experienced teacher with an incredible knowledge of asana, as well as the other limbs of yoga. She has great attention for details/individual body types and will help strengthen your practice in a firm yet supportive way. If you want to learn ashtanga you really need to practise with her at least once in your life
