Ashtanga Yoga is a dynamic set series of postures designed to build strength, flexibility, endurance and focus. Participants will be guided through the Ashtanga Primary Series step by step, you do not already need to know the postures before you try a class! Those who wish to find a real sense of deep strength in the body whilst remaining steady in the mind will enjoy this approach to yoga. Once the series becomes more familiar, the body stronger and more flexible, participants will begin to feel a sense of rhythm and smoothness in the practice. The breath is key (as with other styles) so participants will be taught how to surround the practice with breath to fuel the sequence and calm a busy mind. Sessions will end with adequate time for relaxation.
