Mysore Ashtanga Yoga

occurs on: Sundays - monthly
time: 10:30 - 12:30
A Mysore Ashtanga class is a silent, peaceful highly personalised class in which the teacher works with each student in detail where needed. This form of practice in unique to Ashtanga yoga and is very traditional.

You can arrive and leave whenever you like during the Mysore class as everyone will be working at their own pace.

The Ashtanga Mysore yoga class gives you more time to explore postures you want to work on with me and to move through the sequence at your own pace. I will come along and assist where I think you might need help and you can indicate to me that you want assistance by sitting or standing still, there's no rush to get into or out of postures, I teach you additional postures in the sequence when you are ready and teach deepening of postures when you are ready. We can even create a specific yoga sequence for you with individual adaptations for your body.

See the Events or Timetable page for the next Mysore Ashtanga Yoga class.

A silent, powerfully moving experience and a wonderful way to deepen your practice.

Is this yoga class suitable for beginners?

Because this class is self-paced we recommend the following: -

To practice Ashtanga Mysore we ask that you have attended at least 6 Ashtanga yoga classes before you come along to this class so that you are familiar with some of the asana (postures).

To practice your own yoga sequence which isn't Ashtanga - you are also very welcome and I will happily assist you.

Do I have to stay for 2 hours?

No, one of the lovely things about Mysore style Ashtanga Yoga is that it is self-paced. You can arrive and leave when you please and work as quickly or as slowly as you like, with time to get to work out some of those more puzzling or challenging asana.

What is the difference between this class and the other Ashtanga yoga classes?

Instead of the teacher talking everyone through the yoga practice all at the same pace, each student moves at their own pace. The teacher quietly offers detailed one to one advice and assistance.

This is the personal training of the yoga world.

Do I need to know the Ashtanga Yoga Sequence?

No, I will be there to show you what you don't know and to remind you of what you forget.

You will be shown the practice suitable for you, some people will practice standing sequence, some half primary, some full primary and some intermediate.

You are also welcome to come along and enjoy the silence and practice your own sequence.

What is Ashtanga yoga?

Ashtanga yoga is an energetic traditional form of yoga founded in Mysore, India and now practiced all over the world.

It comprises a set series of postures which flow together forming a moving meditation which is excellent for stress-relief, flexibility, balance and strength as well as cardio-vascular fitness.

Because the postures are only held for 5 breaths and we are moving and breathing rhythmically, Ashtanga yoga is also excellent for anxiety, cardio-vascular fitness and improving the tone of vagus nerve which improves resilience and the ability to remain focused and calm.

about the Teacher

Emma Lowther-Wright: Studio Director

Hi, I'm Emma and I am very fortunate to have been trained to teach Ashtanga Yoga by world-renowned John Scott. John is one of the key teachers who brought Ashtanga yoga from India to Europe.

I am dedicated to and immersed in the Ashtanga practice and continue to travel to study with senior 500hr international teachers including Eddie Stern, Scott Johnson and Greg Nardi.

I teach with an emphasis on clear communication, empowerment, joy and compassion. I am especially interested in the neuroscience of yoga, how yoga can release physically held mental and emotional tension and how yoga can help us to live with greater joy, confidence and ease.

As well as studio classes I work within the community teaching in workplaces and education settings and to members of our community with physical and mental health challenges including those with deafness, who use a wheelchair and have cognitive challenges.

My classes are heart-lifting, empowering, flowing dances to the rhythm of the breath. I share movement and meditation practices with kindness, encouragement and joy - I hope to welcome you to a class soon.

I am only fairly recent to the studio and to Emma as a teacher but wow what a difference it has made to my week each week and my well-being overall. I look forward to my classes and feel amazing after.

Emma is so kind and helpful  coaxing you to push a little further and increase your practice, making it more enjoyable and giving your a stronger basis. The yoga in the park during the pandemic was a life line and such a beautiful idea I almost sad to go back to a studio. We laugh, practice and most of all enjoy the moment. I recommend this school and teacher wholeheartedly ......”  Anna

Learnt so much

Emma is a fabulous and very authentic yoga teacher. She has a really thorough knowledge of yoga and the human body and she applies this in a way that is appropriate to every individual in the class to help us to get the most from each posture. She seems to know exactly what will work with each person. My flexibility and breath have really improved since I started studying with Emma. Steven
