Ashtanga Yoga

Ashtanga Yoga is an exhilarating and flowing Yoga founded by Sri Pattabhi Jois.

What to expect:

Ashtanga is known for its structured sequence of postures that are performed in the same order each time. It is one of our most ‘gymnastic’ yoga styles which “stokes the fires within”.

The practice is intense and dynamic, offering a vigorous workout while cultivating mental focus and discipline.

Adherence to the sequence is the key to progression and as you become familiar with the sequences, the repetition allows for an inward journey where the rhythmic flow becomes a moving meditation. The challenges posed by the structured sequence foster resilience and determination, crafting a journey that is as enriching for the mind as it is for the body.

Suitable for those who:

    • Spend a lot of time sitting or have a sedentary lifestyle;
    • Are physically active and are looking for a fast-pasted and physically challenging class.

Benefits include:

    • Building stronger mucles
    • Improved flexibility
    • Decreased stress
    • Helps to detoxify muscles and organs
