Ashtanga vinyasa yoga class, Primary series

Thursday 1 February
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Hi, my name is Mary, I’m a certified yoga teacher

Ashtanga is a vigorous and dynamic, very energising yoga style..a great way to start the new Year..

Please notice this class is still tough, the difference between this class and a regular full led Ashtanga class is that the pace is slower as I take the time to explain the postures in more detail.
Also we will be adding new postures progressively.
