Mysore Ashtanga Yoga – start your day feeling great
This is the traditional method of teaching the Ashtanga Yoga system. Each student is guided through the practice individually whilst in a group setting, focusing on their breath at a pace to suit them. Best of all you don’t need to know the Ashtanga sequence as our Mysore teacher; Louise is there to guide you through your practice.

This is the best way for you to start your yoga journey!
Don’t panic if you can’t touch your toes. Old or young, stiff or flexible, fit or unfit anyone can do this practice. All you need is a willingness to learn and a desire to get on the mat.
All newcomers learn a very straightforward, flowing sequence known as surya namaskar or the sun salute followed by some seated, breathing exercises and a relaxation.
Your first practice will be between 30 and 45 minutes depending on how much time you have; and from then it will grow at a pace to suit you.
- 6.30am to 9.00am Monday to Friday and 8am – 10am on Saturdays. (with the exception of moon days when we don’t practice Mysore Ashtanga Yoga – see list of dates at the bottom of this page). Drop in anytime during the session; just make sure you arrive no later than 30 mins before the end so you have enough time to do your practice.
- First Saturday of every month is a Traditional Counted Led Primary Series

Louise discovered Astanga yoga in 2009, and soon developed a daily Mysore practise. She hasn’t looked back since, and continues to find daily inspiration with her teacher Hamish Hendry, with whom she is currently studying the Astanga Advanced A series. Louise also regularly studies with R. Sharath Jois in London and Mysore, India.
Louise began teaching in 2011 through the traditional method of apprenticing with her teacher. She has taught continuously since then, and is deeply grateful for the opportunity to share Astanga yoga with in the traditional Mysore style.
Louise has a deep-rooted sense of awe, wonder and respect for the healing and transformation that yoga brings.
Louise currently studies Sanskrit alongside an M.A. in The Traditions of Yoga and Meditation, and is also a qualified Arts Psychotherapist.
