Nadia Stinga Rihani is committed to teaching Ashtanga Yoga as taught by R. Sharath Jois of the Ashtanga Yoga Institute (KPJAYI), who continues the work of his grandfather Sri. K Pattabhi Jois. Nadia is authorised to teach this practice, receiving the blessing from Sharath Jois in 2014 after completing the Advanced A Series in 2013. Nadia is one of only a handful of teachers in Sydney who have received this high level of teaching certification.

The Ashtanga yoga sequence is based on “vinyasa” – breath movement synchronisation. This warms the body, resulting in sweat, the removal of toxins and the purification of the body, mind and nervous system. Practitioners develop strength, flexibility, stamina and an overall sense of wellbeing.

In a Mysore class the postures are taught sequentially, allowing students to develop at a pace that is suitable to each individual. Students will develop a self-practice that is done at their own pace and taught to them over time by their teacher. This makes it ideal for students of any ability (beginners to advanced, injured or not) so long as they are able to commit to the practice.

Mysore Classes at Ashtanga Yoga Manly are taught 2 mornings a week in the heart of Manly. Traditionally a daily practice, students of Mysore style come to both classe each week and try to practice at home twice per week to gain an understanding and level of comfort in the practice. It is not recommended to attend other classes whilst practicing the Ashtanga method.

Ashtanga Yoga is powerful tool for self-transformation. It is suitable for all ages, body types and fitness levels. All that is needed is an open mind, enthusiasm to learn and a commitment to practicing regularly. The greatest benefits come with regular practice.

We do not take drop in students to the Mysore Program unless they have an existing Ashtanga practice.
New students are most welcome to attend Ashtanga, but please be aware of the commitment it requires and give it a full month of practice rather than a single drop in class.
