BEGINNERS ASHTANGA (Places Available)

I want to thank you for introducing me to Yoga. The last 8 weeks yoga was the best form of exercise I have ever done. You were very clear with your explanation of each move and the modifications available to suit each student needs. Within 8 weeks, I can already see the difference it has made to my posture, a sense of well being and calmness. With your excellent teaching, I am definitely a yoga convert ! See you at class. Thank you once again.

If ever you wanted to try a “body changing” experience then I wholly recommend that you try Ashtanga yoga with Rob. Over the years I have toiled with my fitness pounding the pavements or sweating it out at the gym but having started the power of Ashtanga, I can see a difference not only in my body shape but in my general state of mind. I have become an “addict” to this particular type of yoga and with the commitment of practise both through class and home, you will truly reap the benefits. Rob is the most calming and patient of teachers and the class surroundings always makes you feel comfortable and relax, never intimidating. Thank you Rob, hopefully I am a convert for Life!

These sessions act as an introduction to Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga. The aim is to familiarise the yoga student to the Ashtanga sequence and prepare them to attend the ashtanga improvers or self practice with confidence.

The sequence is physically demanding and will develop strength, inner focus and flexibility. Prepare to sweat! further Information

PERSONAL TRAINING

 

 

The great benefit of learning Ashtanga on a One to One basis is that you learn at your own pace. Everyone is different, so a program can be designed to focus on whichever areas that you choose, i.e. strength, flexibility, stamina, a calmer mind etc. Eventual you will find balance in all these fundamental areas of health and reach your goal of living be healthy and strong in body and mind.
