Ashtanga Yoga is a style of yoga


Your private yoga lesson is dedicated to your individual practice. We will work together to create a programme targeting your specific goals and aims.

Ashtanga Yoga is is a highly structured vinyasa-style class. There are five Ashtanga asana series and each student must master every pose of the first series before moving onto the second series. Ashtanga Yoga came to the west through students of Sri Pattabi Jois, who passed away in 2009 after establishing his yoga center in Mysore, India.

The first series begins with ten sun salutations (five A and five B), continues with a series of standing poses done on each side, and finishes with a set of inversions and seated poses, which are linked by a vinyasa sequence.

Charlie and Alice are both directly authorised by Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois to pass on the Ashtanga Yoga method that he popularised in the west.


Each lesson begins with an initial consultation to identify your needs, and develop a structure to help you build clear progress in your practice with each session.

Depending on your personal requirements, your private lesson may include pranayama (breathing exercises), posture practice and sequences, and an opportunity to explore advanced postures and breathing. As your practice evolves, you will be able to take your practice further, and expand your limits.

Investing in your practice - what you will get:

  • Personalised practice notes
  • MP3 recording of practice session (if appropriate)
  • Continued telephone support to help you develop
  • The ability to practice at any time and location that suits you, without the need to get to or find a class
