What is Ashtanga?

the moving meditation

Tired, busy, overworked? Developing a regular yoga practice is the perfect way to regain peace of mind and strength in your body, build endurance and become more flexible over time. It’s a powerful tool, that not only works through your whole body, but will eventually help you go through the challenges of life with effortless ease. 

In India, where my ancestors come from, yoga is traditionally being practiced daily. Imagine the amplified benefits and the transformational process you’ll go through when implementing a daily yoga practice. Ashtanga Yoga, the mother of power yoga, is just that. I help you develop a daily routine; a self-practice that you can always fall back on.


All over the world Ashtanga Yoga practitioners practice and build on the same yoga sequence. A set series of poses, practiced in a specific order. There are six sequences in total. Everyone starts at the primary series, beginner or advanced yogi, but will progress through the series at their own pace.

With my online video course you can start to learn the basic fundamental poses of the series, either to start implementing a daily practice by yourself at home, or as a preparation to one of my in person retreats or practice in any Mysore Style yoga shala in the world.

How does it work?

Typically in a yoga shala, or studio, students receive individual instruction from their teacher and build on the sequence, every morning prior to work, 6 days a week with one rest day. The shala, is open daily from 6 am-9 am in most places, as an open practice space. You can walk in at any time before to roll out your mat. You practice in silence while the teacher is there to assist, instruct and teach you the next asana in the sequence when your body is ready. Some asana’s take more time to learn than others. Just trust the process and your teacher. As a beginner Ashtangi, your practice may be as short as 20 minutes, but over time as you progress in the series, it will take up to 90 minutes.
