Every Student is unique with their own gifts, limitations, needs and intention for approaching yoga. Come discover a space dedicated to seeing and teaching you as an individual not just another number in a group class.
Fashionable yoga trends have taken the world by storm. AYN has consciously chosen to teach according to the Traditional Methods in order to preserve the integrity of the Yoga Teachings as handed down from our teachers.
Gone are the days of inexcusably short or crammed 200-hour trainings. AYN is a teaching shala focused on continuing the education and development of teachers. Come experience teachings for yoga teachers.
Ashtanga Yoga views each student as unique and this comes through in our teaching style and classes. Instead of guiding a group of students together through the same practice, we utilize the Mysore classroom to teach students individually in a communal setting. New students are taught a short sequence of breath, posture and movement according to their individual ability. As they become comfortable with what they have learned additional poses may be added or a teacher may assist and refine those poses that have already been learned.
This process encourages a slow and sustainable growth which systematically heals and balances the body and mind, developing focused awareness and eventually meditative insight.

AYN is amazing! As a newcomer to yoga as a whole, I was very intimidated by the Ashtanga method. That feeling of intimidation was put to rest during the first pose. Amy and Josh’s guidance and patience was unparalleled. AYN really has something special going on and i suggest anyone even remotely interested in yoga check them out! Keep it up AYN!
