Ashtanga yoga classes in Bristol

Ashtanga Yoga is a fantastic way of increasing flexibility and strength.

Ashtanga Yoga classes at Bristol City Yoga are accessible yet energetic and are taught by experienced teachers.

Ashtanga Yoga is a sequence of postures combined with deep, strong breathing. As the postures evolve and develop throughout the sequence, Ashtanga Yoga is a fantastic way of increasing flexibility and strength.

Ashtanga Led Classes at Bristol City Yoga

This Ashtanga Led class will guide you through the “primary series” sequence with modifications for beginners.  You will learn the basic principles of Ashtanga Yoga – alignment, breath and the sequence itself.

Attending both Self Practice (see below) and Led Ashtanga classes is a great combination as you will receive individual attention in self practice style classes which you can take into the led classes

If you have some Yoga experience but have never done this style of Yoga before – then we’d recommend a beginner’s Ashtanga Led or a Self Practice style class (see below) so that you can learn the sequence.

Please bring a towel/yoga towel/your own mat to these classes to help keep our equipment clean

 

Ashtanga Self Practice Classes at Bristol City Yoga

In these self practice classes you will receive one to one adjustments and advice, as you move through the set sequence at your own pace.

Our early morning Ashtanga Self Practice classes run from 07.00 – 09.00.  The first and last 15mins will be supervised by an assistant and the teacher will be present 07.15 – 08.45.

If you are new to Ashtanga Yoga please come to the taught section of the class – between 07.15 – 08.45.

You can arrive and leave at a time that suits you, ideally leaving yourself 60min minimum for your practice.

These self practice classes are for all levels of experience,  but are not recommended for complete beginners.  We would recommend attending a beginners Hatha Yoga class or course a few times before trying Ashtanga.  The class will be mixed ability but the teacher will offer different options to suit you.

Ashtanga Self Practice Classes – Moon Days

On the full and new moon the 7am Ashtanga Self Practice class will be cancelled.

This gives you the opportunity for rest, and to honour the energetic effects that the full and new moon can have on the body and mind.  Other classes (including Ashtanga Led classes) will still run on these days, check our live online timetable if you are unsure.
