Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is one of the most powerful, profound and proven methods of Yoga. It involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of postures that produce intense internal heat and a purifying sweat that in turn detoxifies muscles and organs. Our classes are designed to support in posture, correct alignment and asana adjustments to receive the fuller benefit of Ashtanga Yoga on your health and wellbeing.

The beginner yoga class will introduce you to the basic principles of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. It will strengthen your foundation in some of the key standing, sitting and back-bending asana and help you to understand alignment and experience benefits. The course is designed to establish an independent yoga practice. With breathing practices (Pranayama), you will explore how meditation can help you to connect deeply with the breath and calm the mood, enhancing your yoga practice and overall wellbeing.
This class is suitable for students who have completed the Six Weeks Beginners Course, or have some yoga experience, of any style. Complete beginner’s are welcome to try it, if you are up for a little bit of a challenge. Each class begins with sun salutations, standing, seated and finishing asana. Some yoga experience and basic understanding of alignment is recommended to take the full advantage of this class and also strengthen your personal practice.
The class is not “led” as a whole but rather each student receives a personalized guidance from the teacher, so that the practice is learnt slowly and progressively, virtually one posture at a time, while committing the sequence to memory. The teacher circulates quietly, giving individual adjustments and tailoring the series according to each individual’s level and needs. It allows students to develop independent practice. The student’s inward focus on self-practice is an opportunity to foster the meditative state we seek from yoga.
Private yoga lessons are the ideal way of getting a deeper and more meaningful yoga experience by developing your personal strength, flexibility and breath work, for a more confident and assured yoga practice. Private Yoga course is recommended for complete beginners and designed for your needs. Group Yoga is ideal for couples, colleagues and f

Mysore Ashtanga - Morning Yoga
Tuesdays - 06:30 - 08:30
Address: Friedensstraße 20, 69121 Heidelberg (starts from 22.01.2018)
The Ashtanga Yoga method is built around the ‘Mysore Style’ class, so named because yoga was taught this way by Shri T. Krishnamacharya, in Mysore, India.
In Mysore Class, the student is taught a sequence of postures through one-on-one instruction. The correct movements, breathing, and other aspects of the practice are learned gradually, in a step-by-step process accessible to anyone.
This method allows each student time to practice and memorize what they have learned before adding more. Students are able to practice independently and at their own pace while surrounded by the energy and inspiration of other students in the room.
The main teacher (Manoj) is able to work with each student individually. Initially, students may require more attention, but as they become proficient in their practice, they are allowed more independence, receiving adjustments and assistance only when required.
Personal Lessons and Group Yoga
Week Days and Weekend upon appointment
Private one-on-one tuition was traditionally the only way Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga was taught and is therefore the ideal way to develop your yoga practice. In this environment a dedicated teacher with the best interests of the student can transmit the wisdom and practice of yoga cleanly and directly without misunderstanding or confusion. Asanas and breathing techniques are given to the individual as and when the teacher deems the student is ready, allowing for a firm grounding within the practice with less likelihood of injury, excessive physical fatigue or any other associated problems.
Private one-on-one sessions are usually much more hands on than public classes as physical adjustments immediately correct alignment issues and postural imbalances, communicating to the student what they need to focus upon in each specific movement or asana.
Learn yoga in the same way as the ancient yogis of India
If you are just starting in Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, private tuition will give you the best start you can possibly have… and if you are a long term practitioner this approach will give you fresh inspiration and insight into your practice, facilitating greater potential for growth within your own personal practice.
Tuition can be carried out at a venue to suit you or at your home; all you need is a quiet, warm (and preferably uncluttered!) room and 60-90 minutes of commitment. Up to 3 addition friends or family members can also join in if desired (maximum 4 per group).
I can also teach you what to look for in each pose so that you can help others in their practice, knowledge which will also help the development of your own practice.
Private Tuition can also be helpful if:
- you have previous injuries or specific health concerns.
- you want to spend time developing certain areas of your practice.
- you are a sports person or athlete and want to work towards a specific goal, such as increased flexibility or to target problem areas.
Please contact Manoj if you are interested in private yoga classes for you, you and your colleagues/ partner or with small group of friends.
