About

Ashtanga Brighton was founded in 2007 by Guy Andefors to support the local Ashtanga community. A dedicated daily practitioner in Brighton, Guy wanted to find a way to bring the local community together, to share our experiences and to reassure each other that we’re not totally insane. (Honest.)

Guy, his wife Leia, and the newest member of the team, Hannah, have all recently expanded their drishti from Brighton to Mysore, making an annual ‘pilgrimage’ to study at the home of Ashtanga yoga in India.

Our goal is to share our experiences and inspire others to live authentic, connected lives wherever we are. In short we want to inspire people to find freedom through practice – both on and off the mat.

Because yoga is everywhere.
