Ashtanga Yoga is a modern translation of classical Indian yoga by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. This progressive series of postures links pranayama (breath) to asana (movement) to create a clear mind, and light and energetic body and spirit. Vinyasas connect the postures and feed the body’s internal flame; this allows for sweating and detoxification. Ashtanga yoga is quite active and may be better suited for advanced practitioners, though all are welcome.
A combination of Ashtanga, Vinyasa, and Bikram that seeks to work your mind and body to get you ready for the rest of the week; this flow varies each week, and multiple variations of postures are provided. The goal is to build strength, flexibility, mindfulness, and to further discover the amazing things your body can do!
This gentle flow class is taught with ambient, downtempo music and the aromatic smells of incense, oils, and other sacred herbs. The hour is spent with emphasis on self expression and the experience of being in your body and with your breath: mind, body, spirit connection. Different breathing techniques are explored along with lots of different poses. Poses are generally held for long periods of time and the number of vinyasa are kept to a minimum. Overall, the sequence has a natural and gentle flow to it.
