Run as a daily class in the Mysore style, which means you are worked with individually as you need in a group setting. The class can be very full (up to 30 people working at one time) and that makes for a very vibrant, energizing and hot/sweaty time! Peter’s teaching style comes direct from Mysore India and he offers a very authentic yoga class. His personality is very warm and engaging, Kiwi style, and he’s a great teacher.
As an international teacher his fee of $30 per class is very reasonable. So, there are 3 classes over the weekend: Friday starts from 5:30, Saturday and Sunday with starts from 8/8:30. He gives a talk at some point in the weekend which is well worth sitting in on (some time midday on the Sat or Sun). In it he generally talks about the fundamental aspects of the practice and how to approach a daily practice and answers questions.
If you’d like to book in, send me an email and I will send out an email with start times the week of the workshop. Any level of Ashtanga practitioner is welcome and you often get very advanced and complete beginners working alongside one another.

Vinyasa Flow: Hips
This active flow practice includes breath work, strength work,
and flexibility in order to open the hips for poses like pigeon and tree.
Hip openers also have the benefit of assisting lower back and leg
muscles become more flexible. If your hips are tight and you simply
want to sit more comfortably, this is the class for you!
Please come and enjoy a class suited for those who currently practice yoga (beginners welcome too).
You can come to one, two or all of these sessions. Feel free to use your concession card or membership as you would normally (regular prices apply).
A warm welcome to new members of Sun Salute and welcome back friends, already regular to the lane way. This year there are plans a foot for 4 new classes: a regular Friday night class, a led Saturday mid morning class, possible Sunday practice and a regular led Tuesday class – though this time at 6am in the morning! Early morning yoga practice, coming at you.
A few new elements to the studio space too, new yoga mats, more storage, a door to the bathroom (!) and a funky new facade to the front of our brown concrete brick building, with an awning. These things you’ll either notice now or see over the coming weeks.
Those keen Ashtanga practitioners, make free in your diary, Peter Sanson’s visit to the studio for a weekend of classes: 20 – 22 February. Send us an email if you’d like to secure your space.
Please take a good look at the Timetable page to see when each class starts back. Peter is away until the 17th January practicing with Peter Sanson, Dee is on board as of next week and Mandy and I will get some of the Hatha classes going as of this week (7th Jan). Victoria will start up her two classes in February. I look forward to seeing you soon.
May your new year flow on with light and purpose. The very best to you all.
