"The correct preparation for any journey is all important"

Step 1 Class: Begins the journey of the Ashtanga Yoga practice. A led, group class taught with sincerity, clear instructions and integrity, setting the template from which your yoga practice will be constructed.

This guided class is designed to introduce newcomers to Ashtanga Yoga as well as those experienced in other styles of Yoga, to the basic principles of Ashtanga Yoga.

The purpose of the Step 1 class is to establish important fundamentals of Ashtanga Yoga. Even if you have experience in other styles of yoga, it’s important to begin here, in order to learn the basic principles and qualities of the Ashtanga Yoga practice.

Whilst we do encourage a reasonable level of fitness, you need not be strong or flexible to begin - we'll show you how.

You do need to be able to move with ease from a standing to a sitting position.

Step 1 students at Paddington are required to book into classes.

After the initial 4 x week Step 1 Series program, students can book into another 4 x week program to build confidence and familiarity with the principles, or move into a 'Mysore Style Class' if they have completed the program requirements and feel ready.

Please contact Ashtanga Yoga Shala by email to make your booking.

Mysore Style Class:

Continuing the journey - the traditional class format for developing a real yoga practice.

Pre-requisite: your ability to memorise and work through either the Ashtanga Yoga Shala Step 1 practice sequence and have completed the work for the Step 1 class.

Mysore Style is a self-paced class which continues on from Step 1. Here students with varying ranges of experience practise together, demonstrating regular and committed yoga practise and their ability to integrate new instructions under the guidance and encouragement of the teacher.

This is the traditional class format and the most effective method for developing a yoga practice.

There are various class passes available to our mysore style students depending on frequency of attendance.
