Your Teacher

Naomi Hurst from Doda Yoga has practiced yoga for 17 years and she qualified as a teacher in the birthplace of Ashtanga, Mysore in India under Praveen Somu.  As well as her 500hr Ashtanga teaching qualification, Naomi regularly visits Mysore for further training with Praveen - her last concentration was for four weeks in August 2022.

Naomi hopes she can share some of her passion for this highly energetic and dynamic form of Yoga with you, whether you are starting your Ashtanga journey or are looking to hone your skills and progress your practice.

Ashtanga is one of the most physically and mentally demanding forms of yoga.  You should certainly expect to be sweaty and aerobically challenged.  This workshop is  open to those who do not practice Ashtanga, but it is not open to Yoga beginners.  You should have a regular practice already to attend or have a strong base of cardiovascular fitness.

Please bring a yoga mat, towel, two blocks, strap and a blanket for savasana if you wish.  It is recommended to bring a second set of yoga clothes to change out of after the Primary series.
