A message from Joey & Rachel

Welcome to Ashtanga Yoga Leeds, run by Joey Miles and Rachel Woolhouse. We provide Mysore-style and led Ashtanga classes in Leeds and the Calder Valley to help you gain the benefits of this powerful and transformative practice. We also lead workshops, retreats and provide online content to encourage and inspire your ongoing practice.

Our approach is to treat everyone who walks through the door as an individual, moving away from the one-size-fits-all method of many yoga classes. With dedication and love for the Ashtanga tradition, as well as great respect for the Iyengar tradition, we aim to present Ashtanga yoga in a way which is accessible yet challenging and effective.

We are here to support your practice whether you are a complete beginner, an experienced student or a teacher. So don’t be shy, come to a class!

The Introduction to Mysore-style workshop is highly recommended to get a taste of what an Ashtanga Mysore class is all about. Great (and patient!) teaching catering for everyone in the class.
