“Yoga is really a breathing exercise in which we use the body to expand the mind”
Ashtanga yoga looks like physical exercise from the outside, but is really a spiritual experience on the inside. The ashtanga method is based on the weaving of body-movements with breath-movements into a deepening flow of yoga poses. A dynamic practice, Ashtanga yoga will stretch every corner of your body, invite you to strengthen your weak areas and inspire you to live with grace. Akin to a cooking process, the heat generated, the struggle endured and the peace cultivated combine together to reveal the flavor of your being.
Dive into a sea of breath…
Named after the birthplace of the ashtanga system in Mysore, south India; This is the traditional method for learning, deepening and perfecting your ashtanga practice. A private class in a group setting, the teacher doesn’t lead the whole group but holds the space for the practitioners, beginners and advanced together, to learn and refine their own practice. As a beginner you will be taught one pose at a time in order to integrate the information, gradually learn the sequence and develop your personalised yoga practice. You are invited to repeat over and over until a sense of flow and poise is attained. Eventually the teaching becomes more subtle allowing the practice itself to be your guide. You don’t need to be flexible or know the sequence in order to begin. The practice will teach you gradually.

“Yoga for Surfing is a yoga class that looks at how yoga can help your surfing. I’ve been teaching yoga to surfers, from beginners to professional competing surfers in Sri Lanka, India, Europe, Samatra and Bali and find I’m constantly discovering new connections between the two disciplines the more I surf and learn more about yoga during my travels. Whether it’s building the right kind of strength, improving your balance or helping the mind stay calm and focuses, each Yoga for Surfing class is themed differently to help you discover and develop the connection for yourself. The class is half Vinyasa Flow (a dynamic, fluid style of yoga) and half Yin Yoga, where you’ll be guided through long, deep stretches to help restore and lengthen out your surfing muscles, ready for your next surf.”
