Are you looking for a more physical practice to help unify your body, mind and spirit?
Ashtanga yoga is a powerful and transformational method that uses synchronization of breath and movement in a progressive series of yoga postures. This process produces internal heat and a purifying sweat which detoxifies muscles and organs. It greatly supports body, mind and spirit.
Benefits include increased wellbeing, concentration, strength, stamina and flexibility. Ashtanga Yoga also helps to manage stress, anxiety, depression and physical illness more effectively.
Traditionally, Ashtanga Yoga is a dynamic practice and is taught ‘Mysore style’ which means you practice at your own pace under the guidance of a teacher. In the Ashtanga sequence, each posture builds on the previous one. Students are given poses one by one, receiving the next posture only after obtaining a level of mastery on the previous one. The student’s practice will slowly lengthen as he or she gains and concentration.
