Ashtanga is a challenging, empowering and truly holistic physical exercise system that builds strength, flexibility and balance in body, breath and mind.
Ashtanga is a series of postures (asanas) that are connected by purposeful and conscious movement (vinyasa) and breath. The series works throughout your body with emphasis on building core supporting strength and flexibility of your spine, lengthening, bending and twisting with careful and deliberate action.
Ashtanga is fitness yoga. It is a complete fitness system in itself if practiced regularly and is the perfect complimentary practice for any athlete doing a restrictive range of repetitive movements in their regular training.
Ashtanga is more demanding than other yoga styles but these classes are suitable for anybody who wants a challenging exercise routine. We practice to become flexible and strong, not because we already are.
