Join me in regular Mysore and pranayama sessions at the Arlington Baths or my RCS classes (for staff and students) whether you are new to yoga, want to return to the practice or are a regular practitioner who wants a dedicated, nurturing, and calming space to do yoga.

Class schedule

APRIL TO JUNE 2019

Introduction to assisted self-practice

at the Arlington Baths, 61 Arlington Street Glasgow G3 6DT, as part of Rosina Bonsu’s programme

Assisted practice is the traditional way of learning Ashtanga yoga. It allows each student individual guidance from the teacher and space to explore their own needs.
• Find out how assisted practice works
• Learn the key postures in the Primary Series
• Discover how to remember the sequence
• Be taught the breath pattern and how to monitor the breath
• Deepen your understanding of the postures
• Be introduced to the benefits of the practice
• Feel confident to attend regular drop in classes

This class is suitable for complete beginners, those who practice another form or anyone wanting to refresh their practice.

Drop in £15/£12 Arlington members, concession per session
£35/£30 Arlington members, concession for the course

A practitioner who came to the January course said to me yesterday: ‘I cannot imagine any other way of practicing now’. Me neither. She is right!


OPEN YOGA CLASSES 16 April– 14 June 2019

at the Arlington Baths, 61 Arlington Street Glasgow G3 6DT, as part of Rosina Bonsu’s programme:

FROM MAY: Mondays 7.45–9.30 Assisted Yoga Practice
Tuesdays 18.15–20.30 Assisted Yoga Practice
Thursdays 7.45–9.30 Assisted Yoga Practice

£11 | £9, included in all class cards


MONTHLY PRANAYAMA CLASSES

at the Arlington Baths, 61 Arlington Street Glasgow G3 6DT, as part of Rosina Bonsu’s programme

£11 | £9, included in all class cards

These classes are for those who are complete pranayama beginners, practitioners who have done pranayama but don’t have a regular practice, or for those who have a yoga or meditation practice and want to delve deeper – all are welcome.

The breath is key to Ashtanga yoga practice. It allows for the deepening of postures and enhances their benefits. Each session will develop the tools and techniques required to help you set, refine and sustain an individual pranayama practice.

During these sessions you will:
• Learn about the breath – to observe it, to follow it and to enhance it
• Learn to deepen your breath, allowing you to become more aware and mindful, calm and focused
• Learn preparations and purification techniques that will help to boost the benefits of pranayama
• Learn more about how this practice relates to the Ashtanga yoga system.

My training

I have been practicing Ashtanga yoga since 2013 and I am a teacher of this form. My teachers are Rosina Bonsu, Kia Naddermier, Radha Warrell and Pierre Seghir. I have also practiced under John Scott, Lino Miele, and Taylor Hunt, among others. Ashtanga shows me discipline, compassion, patience, and letting go.
