Yoga classes at Ashtanga Yoga Luxembourg

Mysore Style

In the Mysore room you practise the sequence at your own pace, following your breath and body constitution. We provide personalised guidance and offer alternatives according to your individual needs.

This is your practice where you'll be moving at your own pace following your breath and cultivating self-awareness. We spend time observing who needs what, adapting the practice according to your needs, and remain very attentive in proposing alternatives. 

From advanced practitioners to beginners, we'll meet you exactly where you are, taking the time to know you and how your body functions and moves in order to nurture a safe yoga practice. Our mission is to empower you to develop a sustainable yoga practice.

Your practice will always be tailored to suit your needs and support your life. We're passionate in transmitting our students to learn how to practise yoga mindfully, knowing what's good for you.

Intro to Mysore Style

Our Intro to Mysore classes are held in small groups, which allows us to welcome complete novices of yoga, as well as those with previous yoga practice but who are now willing to develop a self-practice.

You'll learn the foundation of the practice which will be applied to and explored in the basic postures of the Ashtanga sequence. 

During this class you'll be guided and also encouraged to memorise the sequence at your own pace to help ensure your yoga practice relates uniquely to your individual needs. 

Progressively, you'll start gaining independence and confidence in your self-practice which will serve as a soft landing to the Mysore room in our regular Mysore style class.

Sanskrit Counted Classes

We offer two types of monthly Sanskrit counted classes:

Full Primary Series

To attend this class you'll need a solid foundation in basic standing, and a few seated, asanas of the primary series. However, the mastery of full primary series is not a pre-requisite for attending! 

Half Primary/Half Second Series

This special class will include primary series practice until Maricyasana D and a portion of second series practice until Ardha Matsyendrasana. The mastery of any of the asana in the second series is not required.

Moon Day Practice

Mysore practice is cancelled on moon days. On these days our classes usually start with meditation and mindfulness practice followed by breath technique and ending with a restorative sequence and deep relaxation.

We recommend all our students to attend the Moon Day Practice as we're providing pertinent tools around the anatomy and physiology of the breath. We offer you a simple and accessible approach to breathing technique.

We've created the Moon Day Practice as we're encouraging our students to observe how they feel mentally and physically during and around the moon phases and the physiological and psychological impact it may have on them.

Our bodies are constituted of about 70% water and, like all things of a watery nature, are affected by the phases of the moon which are determined by the moon's relative position to the sun. These relative positions create different energetic experiences that can be compared to the breath cycle.

On new moon, you might notice that water is draining from the body and that the articulations become drier, so we do not recommend a hard physical practice and we strongly believe that in the long run it is not beneficial anyway, so we emphasise and encourage an introspective and more meditative practice.

The new moon energy is also associated with the end of the exhalation when the force of apana - the contracting and downward-moving direction of prana - is at its greatest. This makes us feel calm and grounded but reluctant toward physical activities. During this time the energy can be towards inertia, dullness, slowness, unconcern, and apathy. 

On full moon, there is too much water and practice will be heavier than usual, the energy is stronger and some people might feel more emotional and less grounded.

The full moon energy is associated with the end of the inhalation when the force of prana - the expansive and upward-moving direction of prana - is at its greatest. During the full moon we tend to be more headstrong, reckless, strong-minded, and uncontrollable. There's therefore an increased risk of overdoing things and then potentially hurting yourself.

As you practise yoga over time you'll notice that you become more intuitive and receptive towards the energetic cycle, therefore living more in tune and in greater harmony with yourself.

Private Yoga Tuition

We offer private yoga tuition either on a one-to-one basis or for small groups of up to 4 people.
