Ashtanga Yoga Glasgow
Ashtanga is a dynamic style of yoga following the method set out by Sri K Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India. It is characterised by very slow, deliberate ‘breathing with sound’ through the nose , to which every move is synchronised. When learnt properly the movements flow seamlessly from one to another in tune with the breath, unfolding like a choreographed dance.
The precise coordination of the breath with increasingly challenging postures creates a deep internal heat which purifies and strengthens the body. The concentration required creates incredible focus and quietens the mmd, resulting in a feeling of peace and calm.
Cathy has been practising ashtanga yoga for almost 20 years and has been teaching for 9. Between 2008 and 2016 she made yearly extended trips to the Krishna Pattabhi Jois Institute in Mysore to learn at ‘The Source’ She is currently the only teacher in Glasgow and only one of five in Scotland to be officially authorised to teach the Ashtanga yoga system.
Cathy and Gem co- run ‘Ashtanga Yoga Glasgow’ a small studio in The Hidden Lane in Finnieston. They specialise in tradtional ashtanga and yin yoga, offering a constant programme of ongoing classes as well as regular workshops and events.
The emphasis is on quality teaching and small classes to enable a lot of individual care and attention.
Will be brought to you by Gem Maryan who is a freelance yoga teacher, teaching yoga since early 2012 and practicing since 2006. She comes from a movement background. Who is passionate about teaching people how to move their bodies to help aid in bringing the body, mind and spirit back to optimum health and vitality.
You will be in for a treat if you have not yet had the opportunity to experience Yin Yoga. Yin Yoga is a soft and passive practice that focuses on finding depth with the breath. It allows you to become focused on your body and mind whilst increasing your bodies range of flexibility and joint mobility. It is suitable for all levels and is enjoyed by all levels of students and works to release the tensions held in the deeper connective tissues of the body; the joints, ligaments and fascia.
I hope you can join me for a a truly transformative and unique experience of yoga. Learning to understand your body and yourself in a whole new way.
