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.
This class will begin with traditional sun salutations (Suyra Namaskar A & B) to warm the body which will lead into a light but purposeful flow that will vary from week to week.
