astanga yogaastanga a15

This ancient and healing system was established by Sri. T Krishnamacharya and his disciple Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India in the 1930s. The practice aligns dynamic movement with breath, creating a flow from one asana (posture) to another, and focuses on the journey between the postures rather than achieving perfect body alignment. Whilst challenging and dynamic, regular practice of Astanga yoga can offer many benefits including increased flexibility, greater strength, a calmer mind, relief from pain and full body detoxification.

Is it for me?

Astanga yoga is for anyone and is practised equally by men and women. Maintained correctly, it can be a truly healing experience. If you are not familiar with the astanga primary series, you can join one of our astanga courses below to learn the series with one of our teachers. If you have any questions about your suitability you can e-mail us or give us a call on 01273 600010...

Here at BNHC you can choose from beginner courses, introduction to self-practice courses, led drop-in classes or Mysore style self-practice classes with our team of very experienced and inspiring teachers, Sarah Miles (Mysore classes), Kathryn Broadribb (Saturday self-practice, evening drop-ins & courses) and Anna Jones (Tuesday Beginners PLUS course).

COURSES

DROP-IN CLASSES - see our astanga timetable. 

Led classes: Monday, Thursday evenings & Friday mornings and evenings. In these classes, the teacher leads the class through either half the primary series or the full primary series. Classes are busy - reserve your place online to guarantee your spot on the mat!

Mysore style astanga self-practice: Mon-Fri 6.30/7am start, Mon-Weds 9am start and Sat 8.30am start. These classes give students the opportunity to maintain a practice at their own level and with their own breath. The teacher does not lead the class, but assists each student individually, giving physical adjustments and verbal instructions as they move through the fixed sequence of postures at their own pace. This style of practice encourages an inward focus and creates the sense of a ‘moving meditation’.
