Ashtanga Primary Series (7.5 hours)

Looking to challenge yourself? Look no further!

 

Ashtanga Yoga (Primary Series) is a type of yoga that involves synchronizing the breath with sequential, and progressive movements to create a continuous flow. It is based on classical Ashtanga sequences combined with Ujjayi breathing, Bandhas (energetic locks), and Drishti (focused gaze). This weaves one's practice into a structured combination of strength and flexibility.

Physically and mentally demanding, it requires mindful awareness of the breath and a strong focus on the execution and holding of the poses. With this dynamic flow, internal heat is generated which aids blood circulation and overall detoxification of the body. Over time, through consistent practice of Ashtanga Yoga, one is able to build up strength, flexibility, discipline, focus and endurance.

The primary series will be broken down into different parts and taught sequentially. This practice is ideal for regular practitioners and teachers who are looking to develop greater strength and agility following traditional Ashtanga sequence.
