Ashtanga Yoga is a dynamic and exciting form of Hatha yoga. It is an ancient Indian yoga system that, through a set of sequences and postures, allows the body to progressively open and strengthen. The sequence of postures is combined with a specific breathing technique and internal "locks", which are the key to a deeper practice and bring energy to the core of the body, so tightness in the outer muscles can release.
Listening to the mantra-like sound of their breath, the practitioner flows through the sequence in a form of moving mediation that is both energising and deeply calming.
Level 1: This class will give you an introduction to the specific sequence of postures and breathing technique of Ashtanga yoga aswell as looking at correct alignment so gradually core building strength and flexibility.
