Course Program

Ashtanga Yoga, Pranayama, Meditation and Chanting

The actual schedule for the Mysore classes and the Pranayama class can be found here (please note that you can start your practice within a window of time).

Once per month, I also offer led classes in Ashtanga Yoga (prior experience required, firm starting time) and on Sunday mornings meditation and chanting classes (suitable also for beginners). A few times per year, I offer introductory weekends on Pranayama (open for everybody) and refresher courses for Pranayama (prior knowledge required).
