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.

Here at BNHC you can choose from beginner courses, introduction to self-practice courses, led drop-in classes or Mysore style self-practice classes.

New! Beginners Plus course starts end of April - Tuesdays 8-9.15pm.  Ideal for those who have completed a Beginner course or have some experience in astanga yoga and wish to continue their learning and boost confidence before moving into a led class or self-practice. (Drop-in may be possible if space).

DROP-IN CLASSES

Find out times and reserve your place using our online timetable!

Counted led classes (Monday, Thursday & Friday evenings) allow students to develop the pace and stamina needed to keep up with the meditative rhythm dictated by the (counted) breath of the Astanga practice.

Mysore style self-practice classes (Monday to Saturday mornings) give students the opportunity to maintain a practice at their own level and with their own breath. The teacher 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’. On Fridays the 6:30am class will be a Sanskrit counted full led primary in keeping with the traditional Mysore way. There will be 10 minutes of chanting at the start of the Saturday 8:00am class. Please contact us on 01273 600010 before attending your first early morning Mysore style class.
