Energising, strength building Ashtanga Yoga



TUESDAYS: Half Primary Series Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga - ILMINSTER, SOMERSET

An after-work Ashtanga Yoga class to help you clear your mind, challenge your balance, work on your strength and flexibility and infuse you with positive energy for the rest of the week. 


This class is based on the traditional Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series which focuses on building strength, flexibility and learning about the mind-body connection.  It is a physically demanding type of yoga which is led by breath and meditation as you transition from asana (pose) to asana.  You will be provided with a number of options for each asana so you can choose which option is suitable for your level of ability.  There is no competition, judgement or comparison in yoga - what matters is safe practice which can help calm your mind and challenge your body.  There is no expectation of you being able to do the splits or back bends to join the class.  Just come along to see if Ashtanga is the kind of yoga that you may enjoy.  Expect to work hard and finish with a relaxing yoga Nidra.  This is a mixed abilities class.   

Time: 18:30-19:45 every Tuesday  (there is no class on 13, 20 or 27 August 2019)

Venue: Jordans Courtyard,  Horton Cross, Ilminster TA19 9PY (please book directly with the venue)

One-to-One & Private Group Classes

There are many benefits in learning yoga in a One-to-One environment. You will have the teacher's undivided attention and the lesson will be structured addressing your individual goals. The lesson will be arranged at a time and location convenient for you. 

One-to-One classes are suitable for complete beginners who would like to learn the  fundamentals of yoga at their own pace; those with injuries or illnesses who require personalised consideration of how to modify some poses so that the poses can be accessible to them; or to practising yogis who wish to deepen their practice  or revise their alignment or technique.
