Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga requires regular practice to memorise the sequence, synchronise the breath and reap the benefits. It offers strength and flexibility, develops both physical and mental awareness, balancing the body and mind.
It is a dynamic and progressing sequence of postures linked together by the breath.
For each movement there is one breath. The set sequence builds discipline and patience, minimising indulging in strengths and avoiding weaknesses! Progress is self-evident and experiential.
The Primary Series – Yoga Chikitsa detoxifies and aligns the body.
The Intermediate Series – Nadi Shodhana purifies the nervous system by opening and clearing the energy channels in the spine.
The Advanced Series A, B, C and D – Sthira Bhaga intergrates the strength and grace of the practice.
