Ashtanga Yoga’s Vinyasa system is sequences of postures that vary in difficulty and benefit. The flow between each posture is an integral part of the practice. There are three groups of movement sequences: The Primary Series which cleanses and tunes the physical body, The Intermediate Series which purifies the nervous system and the Advanced Series’ which cultivates strength and grace. Each series of postures must be accomplished before proceeding to the next. The sequential process of learning Ashtanga allows the practitioner to develop the concentration, strength, flexibility and stamina needed to progress in a safe, balanced and optimal manner. Postures are linked together through flowing movement (vinyasa). Vinyasa means breath synchronized with movement. In Ashtanga Yoga the movement is always synchronized with the breath. The result is an open heart and a clear mind in a light and strong body. Ashtanga yoga is a yoga transmitted to the modern world by Sri K.Pattabhi Jois (1948 – 2009).
This particular class is based on The First Series aka The Primary Series and we currently are guided half way through the series while carefully building on stamina and strength.
