Since 2008 I teach Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga in the traditional Mysore-Style in Frankfurts 'Nordend', focused on individuality - because every path is different. Therefore I support the practioniers individualized, fitting to their personal possibilities and on all eight paths of Ashtanga: Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana and Samadhi. One goal of my classes is a dynamic meditation which can help to reveal a deeper understand of our selves. ~ First you go INSIDE, then OUTSIDE. ~

We will keep most of our regular course schedule on an virtual basis, check the temporary class schedule. Whoever already took part at an online class, can use the same meeting-ID (or URL/link) to access the future classes. If you want to take part for the first time, just write me a short e-mail to yoga@ayrf.de and I will send you the data to access.
Even though we are offering online classes now, I will not withdraw any monthly fees automatically in April. If you want to take part at the online classes or want to support the principle of solidarity, you can contribute voluntarily any amount you like, if it’s possible for you in the current situation (if you want to contribute something, write me to yoga@ayrf.de). A big thank you to all the members, that already decided to support AYRF in these times!

I’ll keep you updated in time and regularly on my website and on my facebook page.

CLASS SCHEDULE | Ashtanga Yoga Room Frankfurt

What is the traditional Mysore-Style?

In Mysore style classes students will find and build up their individual practice (self-practice) or deepen their existing practice, supported by a teacher. The teacher will adjust and  support you in your asanas whenever it is needed. Based on this individual teaching a mysore class is very similar to a private yoga class - at the same time the energy created by the group will lift your higher. In the beginning you will experience Ashtanga Yoga as an very physical and demanding yoga practice, but throughout the mysore style teaching everyone is being challenged in several ways: individually, based on this potential and needs, but never overstrained. One goal of yoga is to find the balance between calmness and challenge, between breath and movement and between awareness and self-absorption. AYRF sets the focus on a traditional and dedicated practice.

Primarily we understand Mysore style practice as an individualized practice. In order to prepare for certain asanas or as a  response to individual physical as well as psychological conditions we sometimes step off the strict traditional guidelines by e.g. adapting the sequence or the execution of asanas. The main goal is a traditional, individualized practice.

Students, who already have a teacher and e.g. are only visiting Frankfurt and join us as a drop-in, are very welcome and practice in the way they got taught from their teacher. Due to the respect of the intense teacher-student-relationship, I will not change the drop-in´s practice/sequence. In exceptional cases, e.g. if in my opinion for any health reasons I would change or adopt the sequence, I will ask the student for agreement in class.

AYRF Philosophy (my personal eight paths)

1. Ashtanga Yoga is an individual practice.
For me it is not about imposing a rigid system on a student, but about accompanying my students on their personal, individual paths. This has already been said by (how I call him) the godfather of Ashtanga Yoga: T. Krishnamacharya (∗1888, ✝1989) „Teach what is appropriate for each individual”. To prepare certain Asanas or to avoid injuries, e.g. in case of physical boundaries, I do allow myself to loosen the tradition as far as needed. The goal is a traditional, individualized practice.

2. Ashtanga Yoga is like brushing your teeth.In my opinion nor should one brag about brushing his teeth, neither about practicing Ashtanga Yoga. One should not talk too much about it and just do it. Not trying to optimize it every time, not seeing THE ONLY great revelation in it, just establishing it as an regular part of your daily routine.

3. Ashtanga Yoga consist of eight limbs and not just of one (Asanas).
Strength and flexibility alone do not make a yogi. Hence, yoga is more than Asanas. But they truly are a great start into the practice of the eight limbs, since we do work ourselves from the outer shell steadily towards the inner shells of our bodies. ॐ First you go INSIDE, then OUTSIDE ॐ

4. Ashtanga Yoga is a deep connection between the teacher and the student.
In my opinion it is important to find a teacher whom you can trust. In the shala, the student should feel comfortable and seen. As a teacher I am present in my shala everyday, to accompany my students on their individual paths. I do not only know all my students names, but their problems, their challenges, their little aches and pains; I do see them. Keep in mind: deep roots need time to grow. But in the end it is important for me to state that the development happens with yourself on your mat and I am „just” a companion.

5. Ashtanga Yoga happens at the place you are.
You can practice Ashtanga Yoga with what you have and wherever you are. In the end it does not matter in which location you roll out your mat: Ashtanga Yoga happens, detached from time and place, whereever you merge with love, dedication and awareness.

6. Ashtanga Yoga should be available for everybody.
For me Ashtanga Yoga is not a consumer good and definitely not a luxury good. That is why AYRF does not reject students, who don’t have certain financial capabilities: money should not be the reason for not taking part at my classes. So, if you find yourself in a difficult financial situation, please do not hesitate to approach me and we will agree on a monthly payment, that you can afford. „Everybody can do you, except lazy people” (K. Pattabhi Jois) and I do take this quote by it's meaning. Those who want to support this principle of solidarity can give an obolus by choice, just send me a notice about it.

7. Ashtanga Yoga develops throughout a daily practice.
The main effort in Ashtanga Yoga is a (daily) dedicated, humble practice of the eight limbs: Yama, Niyama, Asanas, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana, Samadhi. Not more, not less. In this practice you will experience and recognize up&downs, the depth of yourself and the depth of Ashtanga Yoga. Here you walk your path, which may end in the realization and knowledge about becoming one with your true self.

8. Ashtanga Yoga does not force or ask too much of you.
No one must practice six times week, change into a certain lifestyle, relinquish beloved things or implement incomfortabilities into his routine. Ashtanga Yoga is, what you make out of it or want to make out of it.
