We are dedicated to the traditional teachings of Ashtanga Yoga in the lineage of Krishnamacharya as taught by Sri K Pattabhi Jois. We encourage people of all abilities to practice with us and offer individual support and a safe space to learn and deepen one’s practice.

NOW is the time to practice!

Practice with us in our shala in Fortitude Valley.

Ashtanga – a practice for life

In our classes students practice in a group setting but are instructed individually. That’s why we have students of all levels and abilities practice together and each student can progress at their pace. Students new to Mysore style practice, are required to commit to a month of regular classes in order to learn the method correctly. (No prior experience is required.) Practice takes approximately 60 minutes but can be as little as 10 minutes if you are short on time. 

Our Ashtanga Mysore style classes run every morning from Sunday to Friday, except on Full and New moon days. Please see moon calendar for dates. If you are new to the studio, please register before class to safe time when you arrive on your first day.

Classes explained

Mysore Practice

Traditionally yoga is taught from teacher to student with individual instructions and physical adjustments. Mysore style practice is exactly that.
It is a group class where each student practices at their own pace with individual guidance from the teacher. Step-by-step you learn a set sequence of postures and repeat the postures each time you practice. Over time more postures will be added to your practice. Class times vary according to your level of experience. This is the most accessible and best way to learn and practice Ashtanga yoga and available to all levels of practitioner.

Led Class (once a month)

A class for students with a regular Ashtanga yoga practice. Its an opportunity to deepen your practice with emphasis on the correct vinyasa count and drishti’s (gazing points) in each asana. Dates will be published on our website and on Instagram, follow Ash to stay in the loop: https://www.instagram.com/ashhope.yoga/

FITTmind

This class is taking the principles for physical fitness and applying them to the mind. The class will begin with some gentle stretches, followed by introductory breathing exercises and a series of meditations and mind awareness techniques. The class will conclude with a full body rest to allow the body and mind to integrate and relax. Wear comfortable clothes suitable for gentle movement and bring your yoga mat and cushion to sit on if desired. Find more details here: www.gosmith.com.au

Ashtanga online class
