The beauty of a home yoga practice is that it can be whatever you need it to be. It can be fast and vigorous, or slow with extra time to stretch or practice certain postures. Your time on the mat can be a few minutes… or a few hours if you have time. It can be silent in the stillness of dawn, just before bed when everyone is asleep, or right in the middle of the day. Music or no music, inside or out, at home or at an exotic holiday location. You don’t need to rely on wi-fi connection or computers. Just you and your mat.
🌟 Are you ever disappointed by the lack of personal attention in group yoga classes?
🌟 Do you feel like some parts of the class move too fast, when you would really love to hang around and stretch? Or, on the other hand do you feel intimidated by a fast paced class?
🌟 Do you feel you never get “out of you your head” and into your body, having to listen and concentrate on your yoga teacher’s instructions?
🔶 What to Expect 🔶
This 10 week course is for you if you wish to delve into developing your own home yoga practice. Students will develop their own dynamic series of postures based on the Ashtanga Vinyasa 1/2 primary yoga sequence. Each student will receive personal guidance and assistance with hands-on and verbal cues, with each pose adapted to the student’s ability. The teaching is tailored to the individual, as in a one to one session, but within the energy of a small group setting.
Everyone in this 10 week course will be in the same boat. Over the 10 weeks, through repetition, you'll begin to memorise the sequence so the practice becomes second nature like a moving meditation. You will be supplied with a laminated “cheat sheet” of postures as well as a course folder. The class will be small (8 students) and students must be able to dedicate themselves to the 10 week course with at least 1 recommended homework session per week. I’ll be emailing students weekly with tips and videos to keep you on track.
By the end of the 10 weeks you will have the confidence and knowledge to be able to roll your mat out anywhere and practice.

This way of learning yoga is based on the traditional Ashtanga Yoga “Mysore style” system. Mysore is named after the south Indian town in which the late K Pattabhi Jois taught from the late 1930s until his death in 2009.
🌟 Imagine learning yoga in this traditional way, where the cue to move on to the next posture comes from your own breath instead of a teacher's instructions.
🌟 Feel completely focused on your practice, without the comparison and competition as everyone works at their own pace.
🌟 Work closely with your teacher over a period of time so that you both develop an understanding of the way your body moves
Working through a set series of postures has the benefit of developing these key postures, seeing your progression from week to week and it avoids the temptation to skip postures that you find challenging. In effect, you become your own teacher focusing on breath, drishti (gaze point) and bandha to achieve a practice that is a silent, moving meditation.
