Gabriella brings ashtanga yoga to Maitri Studio on Friday and Saturday mornings

Ashtanga Yoga with Gabriella

We're delighted to have Gabriella from The YogaTree bring Ashtanga Yoga back to Maitri Studio.

Introduction to Ashtanga workshop

Ashtanga Yoga classes

The best way to learn the essence of this traditional practice is to learn from an experienced teacher who guides the student through the sequence teaching them pose by pose but in a group setting (Mysore class) alongside an occasional guided class (Saturday led class).

  • Mysore Mornings on Fridays 6.30-8.30am from 26th July 2024 - read details here
  • Wednesdays 6-8pm from 4th September 2024

"That’s why I’m offering weekly Mysore morning and evening classes where I can guide students individually and teach them the sequence pose by pose. Students that know the sequence can practice at their own pace in the group setting, and I’ll guide them with verbal cues and physical assists if necessary."

(Please let the teacher know at beginning of class of any injuries and/or if you would prefer not to be adjusted.)

4 week Ashtanga Yoga Guided Class (intro block)

  • Saturdays 9-10.30am on 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th August 2024
