Ashtanga Primary Series (1.5 hours)

5-DAY NOVEMBER CHALLENGE

 

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

There are five different parts in this primary series. 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.

This practice is ideal for regular practitioners and teachers who are looking to develop greater strength and agility following traditional Ashtanga sequence.
