​An Introduction into Ashtanga Yoga

Beginners often do not feel confident to join Mysore style classes. Mysore style classes are the most ancient and safest way to learn Ashtanga Yoga at  your own pace and without hurting yourself by finding your personal rhythm and by enjoying the full attention of the teacher. In our ongoing Ashtanga Intro Course for beginners you will learn fundamentals to be able to practice with confidence.

You might join the ongoing group course, enjoy One-to-One sessions or book an Ashtanga Intro Immersion Retreat on the Canary Islands with Anouschka.
