Our Ashtanga Yoga Classes

We have a variety of different yoga classes that we run throughout the year – find out more about them below.

Beginners Introductory Yoga Courses

These courses are the ideal way to start your Ashtanga Yoga practice. The weekend will provide you with a thorough introduction to Yoga, including its origins and aims, as well as covering the basic principles of the Ashtanga practice in detail, providing you with a clear foundation for developing a strong and safe personal practice.
Students must have their own Yoga mat and also bring a towel. As class size will be limited students should register as soon as possible for Beginners Introductory Courses.

Course details and dates

 


Mysore Self-Practice Yoga Class

What is Mysore style? At Mysore Classes beginners and experienced practitioners practise together, each at her/his own level and receive one-to-one guidance and adjustment.
This is the traditional way in which Ashtanga Yoga is taught. Students learn the correct sequence of postures of the Series, each according to their own specific needs and capacity. This gives everyone a Yoga practice appropriate to them, and helps them to develop good practice habits and to benefit to the maximum from their Yoga. Please note that officially the class lasts 90 mins from the start time and, though it is not absolutely necessary to arrive exactly at the given start time, it is highly recommended.

Guided Yoga Classes - Ashtanga Yoga Dublin

Guided Yoga Classes

These are classes in which the teacher leads the students through the practice as a group, counting the correct vinyasa system of Ashtanga yoga. There are two levels, Guided 1 and Guided 2 (see below). Both levels will give students a feeling for the rhythm and pace of practice they should try and develop and to help them to follow the correct vinyasa system of Ashtanga yoga. They also help build strength of body and focus of mind. These classes should ideally be attended in addition to Mysore style classes to ensure that students develop the best possible practice.

Guided 1: Monday & Wednesday 19:00 – 20:15: suitable for all including Beginners (those who know the sequence can continue mysore style through full primary series).
Guided 2-3: Saturday 10:30: 90 mins approx, full primary series – suitable for all-Beginners are welcome but will have a shorter practice.
Guided 3: Friday 06:00: 90 mins approx, full primary series – not suitable for Beginners.
