Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is a dynamic method of Yoga that involves synchronizing the movement of the body with a breathing technique known as Ujjayi Breath (breathing with sound) and the use of internal locks or Bandhas. This approach – the combination of the breathing, the use of internal locks (bandhas), as the practitioner moves dynamically through a series of postures (asana), is understood to activate internal heat which purifies the body’s internal organs & nervous system. The Primary Series also known as Yoga Chikitsa - which means yoga therapy is intended to detoxify and align the body, increase flexibility, develop strength and build stamina.
This is a post-beginner level Ashtanga class, suitable for students with some experience of the Ashtanga Primary Series (up to Navasana pose - half Primary) or equivalent experience. We follow the classic five breath count and move through the series in an uninterrupted, rhythmic and meditative flow. Breathe, sweat, focus on the flow, and set yourself up for an energized week.
