We have stopped the Friday Led Primary (Ashtanga) Class as it became clear that summer is not the best time to start this one. Charlie will be re-starting this class in November, yes, I know, its a long way away and it might be at a different time, i.e. lunchtime on Tuesdays, food for thought….meanwhile, our dear Laura McCrimmon will be studying in Bali for 7 weeks and I will offer Dynamic Yoga on Wednesday evenings whilst she is away and Allan is covering her Tuesday evening class. A feast of Yoga and variations of teachings:)))
The Ashtanga Vinyasa Class – for beginners and experienced Yogis
led by Charlie Grange
Charlie will offer an 8 week block of Ashtanga Vinyasa from Friday 7th July until Friday August 25th.
cost: £8/6 as usual or use your block cards
The Ashtanga Vinyasa Class is about learning the form of Ashtanga Yoga, how to use breath and movement to ones benefit as well as increasingly better placement or alignment of the Postures.
This form is moderate to strong, and Charlie will give you lots of tips and ways of entering and leaving postures. In any case, this is an invitation to have fun and learn at the same time
We’re delighted to announce that Mysore will begin again next week!!
The lovely Charlie Grange is moving back to Aberdeen to dedicate her fantastic teaching skills, energy and enthusiasm to the Morning Mysore Program
Ashtanga enthusiasts and anyone keen for a supported morning practice or who would like to get into one will have the excellent opportunity to benefit from Charlie’s wealth of experience not just in teaching but also as a practitioner.

The Thursday lunch class will resume as of May with our lovely Emma guiding you through beautiful, blissful practises to stretch out, release tension, gently strengthen your body and increase your flexibility.
Emma is a yoga teacher and yoga therapist with a skill for gently, kindly easing you into the subtle transformative power of breath-led yoga practices.
This is a 45 minute class from 12.15pm to 1pm and costs £6, or £5 concession.
for now the Mysore program is in sleeping mode. We’ll restart it in June, one way or the other:))
In the meantime keep practicing, with kindness and clarity in body and mind:)
There is no Thursday lunch class today running this or next Thursday 6 or 13 April.
Sorry for any inconvenience!
The last regular opening, until June, of the Mysore program sessions will be March 15th and after that I will open the studio on Tuesdays and Thursdays (21/23/28/30 March & 4/6/11/13 April) from 7-8.30am for a Self Practice, no teaching or adjustments, other than if you ask and someone, maybe not me, will come and help. There will be copies of the Primary and Second Series as memory aids available, but since Yoga is about awareness and Self-Inquiry through the body and breath, you can come and explore any aspect of your Yoga Practice, be it Ashtanga or other Hatha. No monies involved, donations are welcome, not necessary.
In June we have Charlie Grange taking the Mysore Program and more details will follow when we have created them
As of today, well, really a bit already last week, we will explore some aspects of chakra ‘work’ during the Yin Yoga on Wednesdays or as part of a meditation at the end, as feels apt there and then:))
For those of you that think that they do not know about the chakra system: chakra, the word, means disk or wheel, in other words it implies something that is spinning or rotating. Different systems of Chakra work have different understandings as to how these disks might be spinning, I work with the experience of them spinning alternately clockwise or anti-clockwise. Working with them is a tool, an exploration into being more complete in our human experience, by which I mean: grounded, centred, clear, loving, knowing what I want, having some forms of insight and dreams as to how life might be lived in a more happy way. Its easy and your immune system will like it too!!
Dear Yoginis and Yogis
on Wednesday 15th March I will open the doors for the Mysore sessions for the last time. I have held this for long enough and I thank everyone who attended dover the last 4 years, since Sarah Hatcher started it,
AND – watch this space as Charlie Grange will move back to Aberdeen and then we’ll open those doors for the Mysore (and Freedom Yoga) sessions again. She trained with Sarah, whilst she was here and then also with Matthew Sweeney. We will focus not only on the Ashtanga Sequences, but also introduce Moon Sequences for the days when energy or motivation are harder to come by. Its more than a fall-back, its more like following the wisdom of the body/mind and doing Yoga appropriately and intelligently to your energy and physical or mental condition. She will start with us either sometime this summer or in the autumn.
In the meantime: I am occasionally going to announce and Open Early Morning Studio, where you can come and practice Ashtanga or other forms from 7am – 8.30am, no adjustments other than if you might ask a friend next to you to help, no monies involved (perhaps donations if you want to). These will take place on Tuesday and/or Thursday mornings. News on this via Facebook Ashtanga Yoga Aberdeen
