Yoga Manchester are thrilled to host a weekend workshop with the amazing Ashtanga Yogi David Williams. David Williams is probably the most important (Western) Ashtanga Yoga teacher alive today. He was one of the first Western students to study directly with the Guru of Ashtanga Yoga Pattabhi Jois in Mysore India  and he is singularly responsible for bringing Guruji  and his teachings to the West in the early seventies. The rest they say is history!

This is an opportunity to study with an incredible teacher and Yogi that is NOT to be missed.
