Sheffield Ashtanga Yoga
– Jane Mark Lawson, Pete Gill and Matt Tregellas
Jane and Pete have been practicing yoga since 1988 and Ashtanga Yoga since the mid 1990s.
"We follow our teachers who learnt Ashtanga yoga from Sri K Pattabhi Jois of Mysore and use the traditional approach to Ashtanga Yoga, based on the vinyasa system. We both spend time with our teachers every year to keep developing our own yoga practice and our teaching style. We believe that by working slowly through the practice and allowing the body to open in its own time anyone can benefit from this wonderful yoga."
Ashtanga Yoga is a yoga of practice. It requires mental and physical application from which strength, poise and inner wisdom develop. This method of Yoga involves the purification of the system through heat generated from the breath and continual movement. Our approach, like that of our teachers, is not one of striving to achieve, rather, allowing the body to unfold in its own time.
"Ashtanga yoga really complements my rock climbing by improving my flexibility, core strength and breathing. Yoga is now a valuable part of my training for climbing." Sam Whittaker, E9, F8c, Font8a , Co-owner, The Climbing Works.
"As climbers, we all deal with occasional injuries and niggles. Since starting Ashtanga Yoga I have seen a direct correlations between practicing yoga and a reduction in injuries. I don't hesitate in recommending Ashtanga yoga to any climber." Brian McAlinden, Manager, The Climbing Works.
