Why Ashtanga Yoga?
Your Pregnancy Yoga Teacher
Ashtanga Yoga Timetable
Ashtanga is the most energetic and challenging form of yoga, it's also very traditional with a lineage tradition. Emma is trained by a lineage teacher.

Ashtanga yoga combines flexibility, strength, balance and cardiovascular fitness as well as a cultivation of focus, curiosity, deep awareness and control of the nervous system.

It suits those who are happy to work at their physical yoga practice and to sweat and progress.

You'll learn the Ashtanga yoga sequence so that it becomes a joyful moving meditation and you'll notice your progression.

If you want to delve deeper there’s plenty to learn in this practice including the Sanskrit names, the Ashtanga count, mantras, philosophy and pranayama (breathing) and meditation practices, which you can pick up along the way, through the video library or through specific workshop sessions delivered at the Shala. Or you can pop along when you can and join in the peaceful yet joyful yoga sequence.

Our Ashtanga yoga students are a lovely, welcoming community.
We have 1 or 2 drop-in spaces per Ashtanga yoga class or you can guarantee a mat-space with our month membership options here

Mysore - in a Mysore Ashtanga class you work at your own pace with individualised guidance from me. To attend this class you will need to be familiar with the Surya Namaskaras (sun salutations) and standing sequence, you don't need to know them from memory as I can prompt you. I will then teach you additional postures as you progress.

I recommend that you attend one of the counted classes to become familar with the Surya Namaskaras and standing sequence before attending the class, unless you already have an Ashtanga practice.
