Ashtanga Vinyasa and Post Natal Yoga
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is a traditional yoga practice linking the breath with body movement (vinyasa) and held postures (asanas). The practice was developed and introduced to the west by the late yoga master Guru Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (Guruji) of Mysore, India. The Ashtanga practice is structured in sequence to build heat, increase energy, and focus attention gradually releasing bound tensions. Through daily practice impurities are removed from the mind and body. With discipline and devotion over time, the body becomes fit, strong, and flexible, energy flows freely, and the mind becomes free of distractions. “Practice, practice, practice and all is coming…” Sri K. Pattabhi Jois
Intro/Beginner and Led classes
In these classes students are led thru the sun salutations, standing poses and some of the primary series seated poses in unison. The vinyasa method, postures, breathing practice and bandhas are introduced. The opening and closing chants are also practiced. The 1 hour Intro and Beginner classes are suitable for folks new to yoga or new to Ashtanga. The 1½ hour classes are also suitable for beginners but they are more physically demanding and new students are encouraged to discuss their attendance with the teacher in advance if possible. Once a student feels comfortable in these led classes they are encouraged to join the Mysore style classes to expand and deepen their practices.
