*Space is limited and reservations are required for first timers. Please contact Hannah through direct message or by emailing hannahmaecooper@gmail.com

OPEN TO BEGINNERS! All are welcome.
Come with an open mind, ready to learn….

When you imagine a laboratory, experimentation and curiosity might come to mind. Apply that to yoga and the possibilities are endless... In the self-practice lab, you will receive one-on-one support from the instructor - learning what it means to have an independent yoga practice suitable for you. Your body, your capabilities and your circumstances. We will primarily be working from the Ashtanga method but depending on the individual and his/her needs, restorative, gentle yoga and other techniques will be included.

Having a regular self-led yoga practice invites discipline, trust in one’s self and a keen sense of awareness among other benefits. *All attendees will be required to remember the work given to them which will be built upon as time goes on.*

Because this approach is driven by the individual, your start time is up to you. The lab will be open from 7:15P-9:00P on Monday and Wednesday evenings and 10:15A-12:00P on Saturday mornings. Come with enough time to complete your practice including adequate rest at the finish.

There are 2 package options, all to be used within a 4-week period:
8 sessions 700EGP
12 sessions 900EGP

*Packages can be put on hold for travel dates and other circumstances.

*For students that already maintain a regular ashtanga practice elsewhere, drop-in is available with prior notification.


About Ashtanga:
Ashtanga often gets a reputation as being reserved for "advanced" athletes or previous yogis. This couldn't be farther from the truth. Ashtanga is meant to be for the individual, not taught as a one size fits all practice. It's as much about increasing strength and flexibility, as it is honoring our limitations and moving beyond the body. It takes honesty and an open mind, acting as a holistic, therapeutic practice that has the potential to add greatly to ones life. The physical practice of Ashtanga works with "tristana" or the three-fold approach: bringing together movement, breath, and gaze. This produces concentration as one moves through the practice. Over time, the repetitive series of postures are built upon. It is recommended that one practices a minimum of 3x per week.

About the instructor:
Hannah has been practicing yoga since 2007. Overtime and thanks to Ashtanga, her practice transformed into one of dedication - helping her find balance and challenging her to grow and love. In 2015, she underwent an intensive teacher training in Rishikesh, India. Being a student first and foremost, her teaching is deeply rooted in her personal practice and studies. Aside from a dedicated home practice, she now studies under long-time Ashtanga teacher in Cairo, Mira Shihadeh. As a teacher, Hannah sees herself as being there to provide a safe and supportive space for others to learn as well.
