What is Ashtanga Yoga?

A dynamic sequence of postures linked together with the Breath, which is the heart of this discipline. For every breath, there is a specific movement.

What are the benefits of Ashtanga Yoga?

Ashtanga develops core & physical strength, flexibility and balance. The synchronisation of the breath with the progressive series of postures produces intense internal heat and a profuse, purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. Practitioners of other sports have found that Ashtanga Yoga helps stretch and release tense muscles. In addition, increased flexibility and joint mobility help to prevent injury.

Ashtanga’s benefits extend beyond the physical. Through this practice of correct breathing-linked postures you will gain control of the senses and a deep self-awareness. Regular practice will result in improved circulation and steadiness of body & mind.
