* Due to the changeable nature of the Covid situation it is possible that this studio class might need to be transferred to our online platform at any point. Should this situation arise please be aware that we will be unable to issue any refunds for the course and in signing up for the course you will be agreeing to attending some of the classes online should it become necessary. 


3) Ashtanga Basics

Ideal to follow 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 regularly, but drop in students are welcome to any class, whether you’re a new student wanting to try the classes out or whether you’re simply unable to make every week.

4) Introductory Workshops

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.

There is no mysore workshop currently scheduled but we will keep you informed as soon as there is !

5) Private tuition

Private lessons are available during the day throughout the week, and some Saturdays, for one-to-one tuition.

Please contact directly to make a booking.


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!
