Yoga is the most advanced approach to good health and wellbeing!
Who is Ashtanga Yoga for?
All kinds of people come to practice Ashtanga Yoga and at the beginning most people discover that their body is inflexible and uncoordinated. This is normal but over time your body will become strong, supple and balanced.
What to expect from the class?
Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga is a set series of postures that, with regular practice, are developed over time. By connecting with your breath and your focus, you will move through the series which starts with sun salutations, flowing from one posture in to the next and finishing the practice with Shivasana; a deep relaxation. You will learn a special breathing technique which dictates the pace, strength and depth of your practice.
With regular practice your body will become accustomed to the correct alignment, your core will strengthen, your stamina will increase and as a result the body begins to open up, becoming more supple and flexible.
Over time it will become clear that there is a lot to be discovered about Yoga. Establishing a strong and flexible physical practice is just one part. Yoga offers personal development and the healing of one’s entire being. Ashtanga yoga can be challenging yet incredibly rewarding because as you are reforming your body you are also developing a stronger sense of self. The classes are held with expert care and encouragement, with no judgments made. Egos are left at the door when we step onto the mat together!
