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.

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.
New Class!! Quarterly Saturday 4pm Led Full Primary Series:
I have decided to again have a regular Led Full Primary Series class. There will be 4 of these a year, one for each of the seasons, Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer. These sessions will be run as a “mini workshop” with a season appropriate theme. There will be the opportunity to go out for dinner and socialise a little after the class.
Bookings will be essential to attend these sessions and the class will be run only if we have 15 people booked. There will be a maximum of 18, on a first come first served basis. There will also be and additional charge for these sessions of $10 if you already have a concession pass or membership with us or $20 if you are a casual attendee. Payment must be made in advance to secure your spot.
The next session will be on Sat. 6th July at 4pm. The theme will be “Surviving a Wellington Winter with Ashtanga Yoga”. Book here
