The bridge between knowledge and skill is Practice.

The bridge between skill and mastery is Time. – Jim Bouchard


Dear Ashtangis,

I hope you are all enjoying this beautiful hot summer! The last couple of weeks you could feel as if you were practicing in India – the heat opens the body and makes it more flexible and the sweating helps you to remove all the toxins from it. Those are the best conditions for this practice, so keep showing up on your mat and enjoy the quick progress!

Below you can find information about schedule changes and events in the upcoming weeks. 

  • August 1st is a public holiday – I will be away for the long weekend so there will be no classes from Thursday (1.08) till Sunday (4.08). See you again on Tuesday!
  • I won’t be around on the first Sundays of August and September and therefore I will teach one Full Primary Series Led class in between those two – on August 18th. The class will be followed by a short talk on yoga philosophy. 
  • Because a lot of you are enjoying summer evenings outside and the Monday class has been rather empty, I will cancel it for the whole month of August and restart it on September 2nd. You can always see the updated schedule on the website
  • The next Introduction to Ashtanga Yoga workshop will take place on August 24th. In this workshop you will learn all the necessary theory and technique so that you can understand how this practice works. The workshop is meant both for students who have no experience in yoga as well as for students who already joined some classes, but would like to learn the theory behind it.
  • I will teach another workshop for more advanced students on September 14th. Save the date, I will soon post more details on the website! I’m also always open for your suggestions about topics you would like to work on.  
  • Last but not least: in the beginning of November I will host the first international workshop in our studio. Ken the Rolfer is an authorized Ashtanga Yoga teacher, anatomy instructor and a certified Rolfing therapist. He will teach a workshop “Living Anatomy of Ashtanga Yoga”, which will give you a deeper understanding of the biomechanics of the postures as well as practical tools to improve your practice. Stay tuned, I will soon post more details on the website!
