 The Ashtanga Yoga method teaches a set sequence of postures (called asanas) and breathing exercises (called pranayama). Starting with the Primary Series, students build strength, stamina and flexibity of the body, as well as clearing and calming the mind.


The postures evolve slowly over time and allow students to choose the depth and intensity of their experience. Regular practice creates stability and confidence in your body and cultivates a calm and meditative state of mind. 

Classes are held at the Thirroul Community Centre & Library in the Escarpment Room and Excelsior Hall. The Tuesday morning class runs in Austinmer at Moore Street Yoga Room.

*Check Facebook page for class times on Public Holidays and during School Holiday periods.

Curriculum based mentor program starts 27th Feb 2022.


You will become stable in your legs and confident in the constellation of your limbs in various postures. Focus on the internal body, breath and posture can bring one into a calm and meditative state of mind.

The postures in the sequence evolve slowly over time and allow students to choose the depth and intensity of their experience.


You will come to know each posture well and be able to practice independently.

Ashtanga is a Sanskrit term meaning eight limbs and refers to the eight-fold path of yoga outlined in the Yoga Sutras, an ancient text attributed to the sage Patanjali. Practicing these eight limbs holistically leads to wellbeing.
