Kia Ora and welcome.  Te Aro Astanga Yoga was established in central Wellington by Mike Berghan and Victoria Grouden in 1999. We teach traditional yoga in the Astanga Vinyasa Yoga lineage as was taught in Mysore in Southern India by Sri K Pattabhi Jois. Regular classes are available in the early morning and the evening. This is yoga for everybody. If you can breathe, you can do yoga to improve your health and well-being. We have regular beginners yoga courses. Our aim is pass on this ancient tradition in a friendly and welcoming environment to give people a yoga practice that belongs to them for life.

Dogma and Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga:

My latest blog gives my view on the fine line between dogma and lineage and why there may be a perception that Ashtanga Yoga is a dogmatic practice.  You can read it here.

Studio Space for Hire:

I would love to see our beautiful studio space used more outside of the times that we have Yoga classes. This can be on either a one off event or on an on going basis. Ideally it would be with complementary activities. If you or someone you know is interested then have a look at the details on the Studio For Hire page in the “Shop” tab above.
