We are the pioneers of Ashtanga Yoga in Spain and the first Spaniards to practice this discipline, with a life dedicated entirely to yoga.

Yoga is synonymous of union.

Ashtanga yoga is a tool for the "day to day" that reduces impurities from the body and mind and helps remove the veil that prevents us from seeing life clearly.

Thanks to ashtanga yoga the individual can develop their full potential.

No matter if you are flexible or do not get to touch your toes, if you are disciplined and you can overcome laziness, this practice will help you in your life.

To start we suggest start with Integral, where we show the Uyaji breath, as successfully perform the asanas (postures), and a small introduction to meditation.

Once you have acquired certain basic concepts, you can switch to the ashtanga class that is more demanding or stay in Integral.

Moon Days

New Moon and Full Moon are days were we should not practice Ashtanga Yoga, according to our teacher Sri K Pattabhi Jois.

There whould be no Ashtanga morning class on does days.


What is the reasoning behind this?

Like all things of a watery nature (human beings are about 70% water), we are affected by the phases of the moon. The phases of the moon are determined by the moon’s relative position to the sun. Full moons occur when they are in opposition and new moons when they are in conjunction. Both sun and moon exert a gravitational pull on the earth. Their relative positions create different energetic experiences that can be compared to the breath cycle. The full moon energy corresponds to the end of inhalation when the force of prana is greatest. This is an expansive, upward moving force that makes us feel energetic and emotional, but not well grounded. The new moon energy corresponds to the end of exhalation when the force of apana is greatest. Apana is a contracting, downward moving force that makes us feel calm and grounded, but dense and disinclined towards physical exertion.

Practicing Ashtanga Yoga over time makes us more attuned to natural cycles. Observing moon days is one way to recognize and honor the rhythms of nature so we can live in greater harmony with it.
