Ashtanga yoga classes in Bristol

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

Ashtanga Yoga is an energetic and thorough practice with roots in the Hatha Yoga tradition

Ashtanga Yoga contains a sequence of postures combined with deep, strong breathing. Through evolving postures within a set sequence, Ashtanga Yoga is a fantastic way of increasing flexibility and strength.

Ashtanga Primary Led

This Ashtanga Led class will guide beginners 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

We offer both Beginners and Improvers – Intermediate Ashtanga Led classes.  Check out our class levels to see which is best for you.

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

Ashtanga Mysore

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. You can arrive and end your practice at any time during the session.

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.
