Dili Ashtanga Yoga

Beginning of 2016 Ahimsa-ka made Dili, Timor Leste, his home base for teaching yoga. Main focus of the diverse range of classes is to inspire  people to develop their own yoga practice according the 8 limbs of yoga set out in the yoga sutras . From that perspective the following schedule has been developed (please check schedule & updates for most up to date information). Dili Ashthanga  yoga offers also the unique Mysore approach for the student that is experienced with the Ashthanga sequences, or can practice independently. The classes are conducted at  Dili  Wellness/Upstairs Studio, Comoro road near Timor Plaza, and at Ocean View (Saturday and Sunday morning ). A part of the proceeds will go directly to some Timorese projects like ; Sport Impact and ADTL. Next to the regular yoga classes Ahimsa-Ka is working on expanding yoga awareness with the Timorese.

Upstairs Studio

6:00-7:45am = mysore style 

Celebrate a new day with a 3-in-1 dynamic yoga class:

6:15-7:30am = wake-up yoga, long

(Or, stay and continue into a standard ashtanga inspired morning yoga sequence.)
Both parts of this unit class are intended to create your own morning yoga ritual.  For regular practitioners the class can be modified to create your own personalized yoga routine.  For the occasional practitioner and the curious a wholistic, dynamic yoga sequence is offered to help you feel complete and awake in this new day.
