Ashtanga and General Hatha Yoga

Lockdown Newsletter #1

Hi everyone
Was amazingto see some of you in our first Sun Salute Zoom session. Sorry it was so short … as soon as the session ended the system asked if I wanted to move to the paid ‘pro’ version. It was a Yes from me. So now we are all set up to have longer sessions, as long as we need.

I’d like to commence with these classes starting tomorrow (Friday 3 April).

The Hatha class is suitable for most people, things can be modified using a chair, a table, a couch etc. You might even want to sit some things out.

Absolute beginners to Ashtanga please wait a moment – I will offer a much slower and coached introduction to Ashtanga session very soon.

I so enjoyed seeing you all yesterday that I think I’d like to do that every week. A kind of news bulletin, catch-up – our virtual coffee shop catch up. You can bring your coffee! And if you are interested you can join in with a partly led meditation and led pranayama breath-work session.
Do the 10am time slots suit you? Please speak up.
Is there any other type of class/session you’d like to see?
I didn’t get to read all of the requests in the ‘comments’ session yesterday. Would you email please with anything specific?
Regarding payment – for the moment, I’d like to offerthese classes for free.It may come to the situation that I will need some extra funds to prop the studio up … I’ll be transparent with you though regarding studio overhead costs, and if they could be met, then that would be great.
A few of you have opted to keep your monthly paid membership going – I am very grateful for that. Thank you so much.
Ashtanga Yogis’ please know that our esteemed and much loved teacher Peter Sanson is giving a led class every Saturday morning at 9am. You need to email Amna to
Our own Sabine is hoping to offer Hatha class to her students. Please stay tuned.
Lastly … this I have talked about before. Our CONNECTORS group. People coming together in the name of kindness to help those out who need it most at this time (at any time), be it with regular friendly phone calls, shopping trips, video calls, drop offs of soup and homemade goodies etc. Also offering some technical help with going on-line if needed, especially for those older (or just less tech-savvy).
If you would like to be a Connector please would you email me with your intent. I am collecting names so we can start planning.
Much love everyone. We are blessed to live in such a wonderful country. Also blessed to practice yoga and have such a wonderful community. And on-line we must go!
