The Ashtanga Yoga system is a living lineage that dates back nearly five thousand years in an unbroken line of teachers, sages and gurus that culminates in the life of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, his grandson Sharath Rangaswamy and every Ashtanga practitioner today.
WHAT IS ASHTANGA YOGA?
The practise of yoga is a process of self-discovery and transformation. Yoga transforms us through gradually dissolving the physical, mental and emotional blocks that restrict our life potential. In Ashtanga Yoga set series of postures (asanas) are woven together using flowing movements to create one sequence. Each connecting move is synchronised with the breath (ujjayi pranayama). Ashtanga yoga is a challenging physical practice, increasing strength, flexibility, endurance, co- ordination and stamina. The Ashtanga Yoga Vinyasa system (breathing with movement) are sequences of postures that vary in difficulty and benefit. As there is a set sequence each pose is mastered before moving forward to the next pose. The flow between each posture is an integral part of the practice. For each movement there is one breath (ujjayi paranyama). The purpose of the vinyasa system is to focus the mind on the breath at the same time creating internal heat. When we produce this heat we are cleansing the body of toxins, creating space for good health and clarity of mind. Over time as the body becomes stronger so too does the quality of the breath.
Within the four week course we will flow with the traditional sequence and focus in on specific poses and techniques each week.
