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.
