Taught by our experienced international teachers

Astanga Yoga Weekend Workshop

With Radha & Pierre

After a few year of absence, we are honored to welcome Radha & Pierre back in Amsterdam, to teach in the same place which hosted them from their very first visit here: Prinseneiland.

Radha and Pierre’s teaching style is to ‘guide without interference’ and to encourage without pressure, enabling students to discover their full potential.Their view is that people of all ages and conditions can benefit from this Yoga and it has been their aim to pass on Astanga Vinyasa Yoga in such a way that it does not clutter the mind with unnecessary dogmas, instead leaving both body and mind free to develop from its own inner wisdom. They believe that Yoga should enhance the enjoyment of life by making everything we do less complicated.


During this stay in Amsterdam, they will offer a weekend workshop for all levels students, including beginners, and a 5-days practice program for regular practitioners of Astanga yoga, with early morning Mysore practice and Q&A’s sessions.


If you are already familiar with the Astanga Vinyasa system, we would recommend you to join the 5 days practice with Radha and Pierre. If you have never practiced this method before or are just beginning to learn it, then join the weekend workshop. Radha and Pierre will introduce you and gently guide you part-way into the Primary Series with detail and explanations on breath and postures. This workshop will create a solid foundation of yoga practice which will enable you to continue safely at home or in other classes.


The Weekend Workshop includes 2 days of talk-through classes followed by their very special “Question & Answers” sessions, where topics of general interest will be raised and discussed from their experience. This is the time for theory, questions and discussion about the Astanga Vinyasa yoga practice.

About Radha & Pierre

Radha has been studying and teaching Yoga since the 1970’s. Then she met Sri K Pattabhi Jois and learned the Astanga Vinyasa system from him. For many years she returned to Mysore regularly spending whole winters doing her practice in his presence, with his guidance and, later, when he was joined by his grandson Sharath. She continues to teach the classes inspired by her experiences with them.
