Ashtanga Yoga combines a series of traditional yoga postures with fluid movements and a focus on breathing regularly and deeply. It’s a physically demanding sequence designed to create heat and maximise energy flow, improve flexibility, strengthen the body, increase circulation and get the heart and lungs working too.
Ashtanga yoga is intended to realign the spine, detoxify the body, and build strength, flexibility, and stamina.
The classes taught are inspired by the Primary Series sequence of postures practiced and taught by the late K. Pattabhi Jois. Classes will list if they are the full ashtanga sequence or part of the ashtanga sequence of postures.
