Between 2017 and 2019 Mati was a student and regular assistant to Fito; he has made 3 trips to the city of Mysore (India) to deepen his Ashtanga practice with Vijay Kumar; and also has practiced at the Lino Miele’s school in Buenos Aire, and in recent years he has been a regular Ashtanga teacher at Yoga One (Tuset, Mandri and Sants).
Traditional Ashtanga Yoga classes have slightly different approach than other types of yoga. Each student gradually learns and practices their own sequence at their own pace. Due to the new security measures it is ESSENTIAL TO RESERVE your class before coming to practice, so make sure to contact us if it is the first time coming to the shala.

Take care of yourself
Don’t rush. Each person has their own pace of learning. Respect your body, do not compare yourself to other students.
Traditional Ashtanga Yoga uses a teaching method that is popularly known as Mysore style (Mysore is the city in India where KPJAYI, the traditional teaching institute of Ashtanga Yoga is located). This style of teaching is totally personalized, it means that each student learns at the rate that their memory and their body allow. Ashtanga Yoga has six closed sequences, within the first classes each student learns a part of the first sequence (the one the teacher considers appropriate for each person). In the development of each class, each student arrives at the time that is most convenient for them, performs the sequence of postures that has been given to them and once they have finished they can leave. There will be students whose practice lasts 30 minutes, 40 minutes, 50 minutes or an hour and a half; it all depends on the rate of learning of each person. The teacher is in the class to answer questions, make adjustments to the given postures, add postures to each person’s sequence, and help each student with whatever is necessary.
Every day the mantra is recited at the beginning of the practice of Ashtanga Yoga; it is a song of gratitude that also brings a very powerful energy to the space where it is practiced.
Due to this type of personalized traditional teaching, at Ashtanga Yoga Eixample we do not offer single trial classes. Since the teaching method is personalized, we invite you, if you find this method interesting, to coming to a minimum of eight classes throughout the month to be able to watch the evolution of your body/mind and decide if it fits to your daily routine. With a single class, neither our body nor our mind have enough information to feel the benefits of this practice.
NOTE: Posture adjustments are made through physical contact and verbal instructions. If for any reason you feel uncomfortable with physical contact, please let us know and we will find another way to achieve the same goals.
