Knowledge Hero: The Eight Limbs of Ashtanga Yoga

As part of Yoga Hero’s Further Training Course, this Knowledge Hero: The Eight Limbs of Ashtanga workshop takes the time to learn about the Eight Limbs of Yoga, sometimes known as the 8 steps to enlightenment.

‘Ashtanga Yoga’ is two things, which have the same name. You may be familiar with the Ashtanga Yoga Series: starting with sun salutations, moving on to standing then seated then supine poses and finishing with a delicious Savasana. But you may not be so familiar with Ashtanga Yoga as a way of life.

This workshop is an introduction on Yoga Hero’s take on Ashtanga Philosophy, but with a pragmatic, simple approach to bringing the philosophy of yoga in to your life; both on and off the mat, and in to your teachings to others, if you’re a yoga teacher, or plan to be.

The eight limbs of yoga go far beyond the mat. They start to filter into what you think and do and say every day; into the way you act, the way you eat, the way you move. The way you treat others, the way you treat yourself, and so much more …

Join this enlightening workshop to learn about the eight limbs of Ashtanga Yoga, and how they can help with any life situations you’re experiencing.

Come join us!

About Holly

Holly Mcfee is the owner of Yoga Hero Ltd. Holly has been practicing yoga for seven years, and teaching for five years. Holly embarked upon her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training here in Leeds, and after balancing a full time job and teaching yoga for just six months, went full time in to teaching.

In August 2015 Holly opened the Yoga Hero studio in Leeds Dock, and in June 2017 this studio expanded to become one of the largest dedicated yoga spaces in the North of England.

Holly, along with Angela Jervis-Read, leads Yoga Hero’s 200 hour Vinyasa Flow Teacher Training Course. Her interest in anatomy borders on the ridiculous, and she is really passionate about yoga instructors having at least a basic understanding of how bodies move, and how joints work, to ensure a safe environment for yoga students.  These workshops provide a safe space to recap on the basics and deepen anatomical knowledge, to make your yoga teaching, and your yoga practice incredibly effective, as well as safe and enjoyable.


About Yoga Hero

Yoga Hero has been established since March 2013. Initially, classes were ‘popping up’ in church halls, arts galleries, cafes, skateparks… you name it! Over time, we eventually found a beautiful home in Leeds Dock.

Yoga Hero has three studios, one with a capacity of up to 80, one with a capacity of 20, and the third is perfect for small private groups or one to one sessions. At Yoga Hero, we offer everything from Introduction to Yoga Courses, Pay As You Feel Classes, up to 200 hour Foundation Teacher Training Qualifications and Further Training, such as Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, and much more!


About Leeds Dock

Yoga Hero is based in a beautiful part of Leeds called Leeds Dock. Leeds Dock is a 10 minute walk from Leeds Train Station, or there’s a free water taxi servicebetween the train station and the Dock!

Around Leeds Dock are many affordable hotels, such as:
* Holiday Inn Express (Two minutes’ walk)
* Jury’s Inn (Five minutes’ walk)
* Ibis (Five minutes’ walk)
* Malmaison (Ten minutes’ walk)

There are also many very reasonably priced AirBnBs on the Dock

Leeds is a quite small city with loads going on. The whole city is walkable by foot, probably 40 minutes’ walk from one end to the other at a steady pace. There’s many independent restaurants and cafes, with our favourite North Star Coffee Shopjust two doors down from the studio, serving incredible coffee and food during the day.

If you have any questions about Leeds; what to do, where to stay, or how to get here, just ask the team: 07743513225.
