Ashtanga Yoga


Practise, practise, practise, all is coming, Pattabhi Jois

Ashtanga Yoga


Practise, practise, practise, all is coming, Pattabhi Jois

Ashtanga Yoga is a powerful and healing practise that helps build strength, stamina and focus.  Through a series of postures, linked together with your breath in flowing movements (called Vinyasa) we build internal heat, resulting in a detoxifying sweat.

The benefits of regular practice are almost immediate and will result in improved circulation and cardiovascular ability, physical strength, flexibility, balance, muscle tone, loss of excess weight, as well as improving our ability to focus and calm the mind.

We offer regular Ashtanga Yoga classes at Love Yoga Taupo throughout the week, just take a look at our latest timetable.  If you're new to the practise, we'd recommend either joining one of our Introductory courses, or coming to a Mysore class, where your teacher will be able to give you all the support you'll need to start your yoga journey :-)   Book online for your next class, just click here and if you haven't already, register your details.

 

BEGINNERS
Students new to the practice of yoga, or new to Ashtanga are both welcome to join us on the mat.  Our teachers are all very experienced at gently starting beginners on their journey and supporting them through the practice.  We highly recommend Mysore classes for this since it gives both students and teachers more space to explore their own individual and prescriptive practice.
 
MYSORE
Mysore classes are a fantastic way to explore your practice on a more individual basis.  Starting with the Primary Series and progressing at your own pace, adjustments are specific to your individual needs.  This means absolute beginners and advanced yogis are welcome, since your teacher will support your practise, wherever it is.

LED
Dynamic, strong and lots of fun, led classes help bring us back into a steady rhythm, whilst enjoying the energy and breath of the room.  Some understanding of the Primary Series is helpful for these classes.

Hatha Yoga

HATHA YOGA

'The purpose of yoga is awareness, not perfected poses, beliefs or any kind of attainment.  Awareness from moment to moment requires quiet strength, flexibility and balance,  A good yoga practise develops exactly these characteristics.'  Jim Gaudette.

 

Our Hatha Yoga classes are a great access point for those keen to take a gentle approach.  This means if you're injured, cautious, pre- or post-natal, you are welcome to join one of these classes and share the beautiful group energy and led style of class.  Depending on your availability, and own schedule, take a look at our timetable, find a class that suits you and book your place online.
