Ashtanga (Mysore) Yoga

Ashtanga (Vinyasa) Yoga is a dynamic, physical, and powerful form of yoga founded by Shri K. Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009). This method involves the synchronization of the breath with the body’s movement and uses a number of progressive series of postures (asanas). The practice generates heat and circulation that strengthens, purifies and revitalizes the body’s muscles and inner organs.

Prior introduction to the Ashtanga or PowerYoga practice is recommended. (at least 3 month of dynamic yoga experience).

 

Led Primary Series (Led class)
For the complete Ashtanga Yoga experience, the Primary Series will be instructed with the traditional vinyasa method emphasized and counted in Sanskrit from start to end. Here you will come in direct contact with flow of the practice uninterrupted. The primary series is a challenging and invigorating sequence of postures that take about an hour and twenty-thirty minutes to practice. The postures are strengthening, toning and cleansing for the muscles, joints and internal organs. During the primary led classes, the students are guided in unison through the postures of the sequence and provided with variations of poses that prove challenging. The class includes postures, breathing, pranayama and chanting. Prior Ashtanga Yoga experience and proficiency are recommended. Please, no beginner students.
