A mixed level class suitable for all except beginners (unless otherwise stated). Ashtanga yoga is a dynamic style of yoga that follows a set sequence of postures. It was introduced to the west by Sri K Pattabhi Jois. The practice is breath-led, with movement synchronised to the breath (vinyasa). The ujjayi breath is used throughout the practice, warming and detoxifying the body as the practitioner flows from one posture to the next. There will be an emphasis in class on healthy alignment and transitions. As the sequence becomes familiar, the practice deepens and begins to take on a meditative quality. This style of class can be a challenging workout and is not suitable for those suffering or recovering from injury.
