Kathy Cooper Ashtanga Day Workshop

Kathy Cooper – Ashtanga day Workshop

Join Kathy Cooper for a morning led Ashtanga practice followed by lunch and two afternoon workshops exploring the intricacies of the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga system. 

This is an invitation to deepen your Ashtanga yoga practice for a delightful journey into your Self. Kathy will use her 41 years of study and practice of Ashtanga, Iyengar and Anusara Yoga to support you to reap the benefits of this royal path of yoga.


After Kathy’s day workshops last year we are delighted that she has to come back to Cornwall for another day workshop and extended weekend retreat.


She is known as a ‘teachers teacher’ because she is one of a handful of people in the world who has completed all six of the Ashtanga series.


You will receive instruction tailored to your body to release any blocked energy and access your vitality. Focusing on the breath, bandhas and alignment, Kathy will fine-tune your practice to allow you to access the deeper layers of the body/mind. This practice holds the keys to the fountain of youth so take this opportunity to learn from a yoga practitioner who is the living embodiment of the benefits of a lifetime yoga practice.

What is Ashtanga Yoga


Ashtanga is a systematic sequence of predetermined flowing postures linked together with the breath. Intended to be practiced daily, this powerful, healing practice is a specific sequence of postures (asanas) linking breath (pranayama) and movement (vinyasa.) Ashtanga is an athletic flow combining strength, flexibility and stamina for a complete practice.


Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is different from many yoga classes in the West in that the order of asanas is completely predefined. A practice will comprise four main parts: an “opening sequence,” one of the six main “series”, a back-bending sequence, and a set of inverted asanas, referred to as the “finishing sequence.” Practice always ends with savasana.

About your Teacher


Kathy has been practicing Ashtanga Yoga consistently since 1976. David Williams and Nancy Gilgoff were her primary teachers. They taught her all of the Ashtanga series and pranayama. She also studied with Guruji (K Pattabhi Jois) on many of his extended trips to the US, and in Mysore, India.


She longed for the deeper truth of life which led her to explore Sufism, Shamanism, Vipassana meditation, and awake teachers. Daily practice has supported her journey impeccably, both in integrating openings and in surrendering to the now.


Adyashanti expresses this journey beautifully,


“The Spiritual task we are given is a simple one:
to attend to that inner spark of radiance, to
hold vigil over it until we realize it to be ourself,
and to dig up and cast off all arguments we have
with its love.”


Kathy practices jin shin jyutsu, a type of accupressure which is deeply harmonizing which is a perfect accompaniment to yoga.

She brings this informed, deep, long-time practice to her teaching, supporting practitioners to strengthen their core/breath/alignment to avoid injuries and move from the inside out.

Suitable for people with an established yoga practice.
