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 Primary Led 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 Mysore (see below) and Led Ashtanga classes is a great combination as you will receive individual attention in Mysore 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 Mysore style class (see below) so that you can learn the sequence.

Ashtanga Mysore at Bristol City Yoga

Ashtanga Mysore is the traditional form of Ashtanga Yoga as taught in Mysore, India. In these classes you work through the set sequence at your own pace, with one-to-one advice and adjustments from the teacher and assistant.

Our early morning Ashtanga Mysore classes run from 07.00 – 09.00.  The first and last 15mins will be an open practice space supervised by an assistant.

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

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

These Mysore 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 accommodate you and will offer different options to suit different levels of experience.
