The Ashtanga yoga sequence is based on “vinyasa” – breath movement synchronisation. This warms the body, resulting in sweat, the removal of toxins and the purification of the body, mind and nervous system. Practitioners develop strength, flexibility, stamina and an overall sense of wellbeing.
Postures are taught sequentially allowing students to develop at a pace that is suitable to each individual. This makes it ideal for those new to yoga or those with specific physical/health conditions.
Ashtanga Yoga is powerful tool for self-transformation. It is suitable for all ages, body types and fitness levels. All that is needed is an open mind and enthusiasm to learn. The greatest benefits come with regular practice.
