In ashtanga yoga, the asana practice (physical postures) is done 5-6 days a week. Students take rest one day a week plus moon days. The daily repetition of asanas is important to get the full benefits of the practice. The more you do it, the easier it becomes.

Led Classes:

Chris is currently taking a sabbatical from regular teaching. Please check back for future classes in Hither Green and across London.


Ashtanga Yoga London:

Chris assists Hamish Hendry during his weekday morning Mysore programme at Astanga Yoga London. In Mysore-style classes, students practise the postures they’ve learnt at their own speed in a group setting. This is the traditional way that yoga is taught at the KPJAYI in Mysore, India – which is why these classes are often called “Mysore-style”.



  • Please arrive 10-15 minutes early for classes to allow for registration and setting up.
  • Always practice on an empty stomach. It’s best not to eat 3-4 hours before class.
  • During practice, avoid drinking water – it will reduce the heat you’re trying to build up.
  • Try not to eat or drink anything for 20 minutes after practice.
  • The traditional ashtanga method does not include props. Please avoid using blocks or belts.
  • Please clean your yoga mat and rug (if you use one) regularly.
