AYVT is Veliko Tarnovo's only dedicated Astanga yoga studio. All practices are commited to promote the Astanga yoga system as taught by KPJAYI in Mysore.
Astanga Yoga Veliko Tarnovo - Aщанга йога Велико Търново is run by Yoga Alliance UK registered teacher Nat Larkin who promotes the Ashtanga Yoga System across Bulgaria and works in conjunction with Mira Jivanmukti from Yoga Studio Ahimsa, Stara Zagora.
Nat committed to a regular ashtanga practice around 2009. In 2010 she found her teacher in the form of Donna Southwell, authorised level 2 from KPJAYI. In 2011 she studied under Brian Cooper (Union Yoga/Yoga Alliance UK) and learnt how to observe the body, give hands on adjustments and guide students to follow a committed yoga practice. In 2012 she founded Astanga Yoga Oldham running regular classes across North Manchester promoting the Ashtanga Yoga System.
Currently Nat continues to transform and develop her practice under the guidance of David Robson (KPJAYI level 2), whom she had the fortuity to meet whilst residing in Europe. She also continues her development with her original teacher Donna Southwell upon her return visits to the UK.
