General Info

Ashtanga is traditionally practiced six days a week. We understand that for some students this is not possible and recommend students to commit for a minimum of two to three classes per week to experience most benefit.

If you practice six days a week, please rest on full moon and new moon days. Women should rest 1-3 days during their period and not do any inverted postures during this time.

If you have any injuries or are pregnant, please inform your teacher before class.

It is very important to learn the Ashtanga yoga tradition from a trained teacher who follows the lineage of Guruji. Ashtanga yoga is not a form of exercise or another style of yoga, it is a method of self realization. Having a flexible body or not has nothing to do with your inner journey, that’s not the purpose of this powerful yoga practice.
