Ashtanga Yoga

About Ashtanga Yoga

Ashtanga is fundamentally a path of spiritual transformation and personal development, based on the eight limbs of Yoga. It is a living tradition rooting back to Patanjali, Sri T. Krishnamacharya, and Sri K. Pattabhi Jois.

 

Ashtanga yoga wakes up the internal fire and life energy. Vinyasa is the breath-synchronized movement. By practicing the correct order of the asanas(postures), it creates a continuous flow of energy that heats up the body. As concentration increases, the breath, mind, body, and soul come into union.

 

Traditionally, students are practicing every day except Saturdays and moon days.

My Classes

Ashtanga  Yoga- Mysore style

The heart of Ashtanga Yoga is in Mysore, South India, therefore the traditional method to practice Ashtanga Yoga is called Mysore style. It gives you the space to focus and follow your own breath. Everyone practice independently at their own pace while surrounded by the energy and inspiration of the others in the room. You have time to explore the postures and go with your own breath. I adjust students individually through the sequence and help them to deepen their practice.

Ashtanga Yoga- Led Primary series

On the led classes, we concentrate on deep ujjayi breathing and the correct order of asanas (postures). We all move and breathe together. After a few classes, yogis will be able to memorise the sequence, develop in the postures and enjoy the bliss of yoga.

Thai Massage

Thai Massage is an ancient healing therapy (dating back more than 2500 years). It combines yoga, reflexology, acupressure, and Ayurveda. Working on the acupressure points along the energy lines (SEN), the massage stimulates the body’s energy level and promotes the natural healing system.

Thai Massage is done on a mat/futon on the floor, the recipient is dressed in comfortable clothes.

In this process, joints are opened, muscles and tendons are stretched, internal organs are toned, and energy is balanced. The overall effect is deep relaxation, rejuvenation, physical and mental well-being.

 

Few of the countless benefits;

 

Removes energy blocks in the body

Improves blood circulation

Relieves pain

Increase flexibility and concentration

Stretch the muscles, tones the inner organs

Reduce emotional and nervous tension

Help with sore tendons, pinched nerves, and numbness

Helps to align the body

 

Toksen

Blending general Thai Yoga Massage techniques with Tok Sen is an amazing work.

 

 

The name Toksen combines the knocking sound of the mallet on the wedge and the word for energy lines Sen.

 

Traditionally it was used by farmers wives for their husbands after a hard day’s work on the fields, in Northern Thailand,  3000 BC.

 

The wood was originally made from the remains of a lightning-struck tree, thought to remove the negative energy. Today the Toksen tools  are made from tamarind wood, rosewood, or teak, which have been found efficient for this healing practice.

 

The gentle tapping triggers vibrations at the muscles and nerve endings that pass through the entire body. This resonance helps to dislodge long-held and stubborn tension by helping to release and relax the body, unblocking the energy lines and easing the flow along the Sen.

 

During the treatment, you will find yourself following the tapping sound which will lead you to a meditative state. This will help to loosen your physical body, making the massage even more effective.

About

Ashtanga Yoga

 

Anne- Claire

I love Ashtanga yoga, it works cardio and flexibility. I also love the teacher, she’s amazing!

 

Caroline

Judit is an excellent teacher, her classes are led with great knowledge and understanding, she takes care to ensure all students practice safely, encouraging us to listen to our own bodies. Inspiring, challenging, fun and definitely a must in my week.

 

Kay

Thai Massage

 

Anonymous

My daughter bought me this as a gift. My masseuse knew exactly where my pressure points were and how much pressure to apply. I always find massages are too light, but this was exactly right! I cannot praise it enough. You will feel supple, energized and rejuvenated for sure

 

Dominique

A remarkable massage technique that I strongly recommend. The work on the Nadis (acupuncture points) is profound and is well felt during the session. After my first session, I was feeling very relaxed, my body was energised and open.

 

Caroline

Can’t recommend enough, I saw judit last week and came away feeling amazing. She worked into every joint and muscle. As a pilates teacher I can often feel over worked body wise as ioften dont have time to practice what I preach but Judit ‘s massage set me up for the week and I’m still feeling energised and de stressed, having been able to enjoy my practice more 😉

 

 

Brishtanga and me

Yoga

Where the name Brishtanga came from? It’s an acronym from BRIStol and asHTANGA.

 

I started to practice yoga with my mother at the age of 17. During university, I constantly practised Hatha Yoga to reduce stress, get flexibility and find balance inside out. Wherever I travelled and lived, I kept practising and it started to be the part of my life.

 

I met Ashtanga Yoga in London and it felt amazing after practising martial arts for 5 years.

 

As I moved to Bristol I found a great teacher, Brigid Swanson who inspired and motivated me to deepen my practice and to assist her. Furthermore, I practice with Caroline Simpson.

 

 

I decided to go to India and experience real Ashtanga Yoga from the source, in Mysore and been teaching since then. I have returned seeking knowledge and deepen my practice again this year and planning to go every year.

 

All in all, I’ve been practising yoga for more than twelve years and I would like to share my knowledge and experience with everyone, who is interested in yoga and would like to be flexible, balanced, healthy and happy.

 

I am qualified Ashtanga Yoga Teacher and registered with Yoga Alliance

(RYT 500).

 

 

Massage

For many years, I have been practicing Tai-chi, Chi-kung, Shaolin Kung- fu, Yoga, and meditation. I naturally started to be interested in holistic therapies, Chinese medicine, and energy healing.

 

My favorite massage is Thai Massage, so I was delighted to have the opportunity to complete traditional Thai Massage (Nuad Boran) training, certified by the Ministry of Education of Thailand. I completed further training this year, including Tok Sen techniques and therapeutic Thai Massage.

 

I am certified and insured Thai Massage therapist, and member of the Thai Healing Alliance International (THAI)
