Discover Mysore (self practice ashtanga)

Everything you need to know about Mysore Self Practice


Saturday 3rd March 3-5pm

Bristol City Yoga







Mysore Style classes can seem intimidating and scary – but this workshop will leave you feeling confident and ready to practice.


Mysore style classes are a central aspect of the Ashtanga Yoga system, enabling you to practice at your own pace whilst receiving one to one attention and assistance from an experienced teacher.


In this workshop you will learn the basics of Mysore Self Practice – the history, how it works and what to expect when you attend your first class.


You will be guided through the basic techniques of breath and bandha. You will learn sun salutations and the first few poses of the sequence so you have a good foundation for your first class.


You’ll also get 4 complimentary Mysore classes to use within 28 days (from the day of your workshop) so you can practice what you’ve learned.


You do not need to have any knowledge of the Ashtanga sequence or any prior experience of Yoga to attend, all are welcome.

Exploring the Lotus

A safe, accessible approach to lotus pose...


Saturday 9th December 3-5.30pm

Bristol City Yoga





Whether you're an ashtangi, hatha or vinyasa yogi or have a seated meditation practice - at some point you will come across the lotus pose (padmasana). This pose is very strong and should be treated with the utmost respect, care and delicacy - just like the flower itself.


This workshop will slowly and safely explore what is required to take a safe lotus position, as it's not just  about the hips.


Over the course of the workshop we may be able to identify areas in the physical body that may be preventing you from entering the pose at this stage on your journey. For those who are not quite ready to explore full lotus, then hints, tips and "homework" poses will be given to help find a comfy seated position whether for asana or meditation.


Variations of lotus will be given, so even if full lotus never comes in this lifetime, we can still reap the benefits of similar poses to help strengthen and open the body and mind in equal measures.


Once we've recognised all our strengths, weakness and options we'll begin to take a short journey with a flowing practice to see the myriad of poses and possibilities lotus pose can present to us - whether its upside down, in twists or even being uprooted and taking flight!


This workshop is great for those wishing to explore deeper, more challenging poses and should come with at least 6 months of practice behind them.


This workshop is NOT suitable for beginners.
