It's my intention to create an inclusive and inspiring online space of joy, exploration and transformation. Through the wisdom of Ashtanga yoga, the Online Mysore Room offers you the opportunity to reconnect within: to find freedom in your body, to quieten your mind and to grow.
I've tried a lot of movement modalities and different expressions of yoga in my life, but the Ashtanga yoga system brings a quietness to my body and mind like nothing else, it's a feeling I can't quite explain...but I know for sure I'm not the only one who feels it! I've taught this method to many people and, as a teacher, there's a moment I witness in everyones practice where I can literally see a spark being lit within ...It's like an inner spark of "Actually, I can!", an inner trusting, a full body "YES" to the experience. Then over time I have the extreme privilege of watching that spark turn into wildfire: day by day they start to bloom, to trust and that is the most beautiful thing.

Log via the Zoom link at ANYTIME between 7-7:30am GMT
...making sure you zoom camera is in a place where I can see as much of you as you move as possible.
Roll out your mat and start moving through the Ashtanga yoga series in your own time.
If you're a complete beginner I will teach you the sequence one pose at a time in a way that you'll commit it to memory. I also have illustrated practice sheets to use as prompts.
I'm here to tailor the sequence to suit your body.
Together, through my verbal instruction and your feedback, we'll make the sequence fit to you - so it really serves you and your body right now....and grows with you.
I worked with Ellie privately both for yoga classes and her ayurvedic yoga massage treatments. The combination of the two (plus some other exercises Ellie taught me) completely healed my chronic knee pain - I'm also a lot more confident and relaxed day to day now than I ever was before!
Self-practice is PERFECT for beginners to yoga because it helps to build confidence with foundational yoga postures and re-balance your body.
Brining strength where there is weakness and space in places of tension, so your body moves with a sense of support and ease.
The Ashtanga yoga method is a set series of postures and I don't deviate from that system... but that doesn't mean that it's a 'one size fit's all' practice, because every body is unique.
I'm not here to fit you into the box of 'the perfect practice', I'm here to use my knowledge and experience to mould the postures to serve you...and keep moulding it as you change.
...and then you have the independence and knowledge to practice yoga ANYWHERE - how cool is that?!
I share this practice because nothing has transformed my life more.
In my time as a teacher I've had the immense privilege of witnessing it work it's magic on countless others in their own unique way, and I can't wait to share it with you too!
