Yoga is a philosophy of life
Ashtanga yoga practiced in its correct sequential order, gradually leads the practitioner towards rediscovering his or her fullest potential on all levels – physically, psychologically and spiritually. Through this practice of correct breathing (Ujjayi Pranayama), postures (asanas), and gazing point (driste), we gain control of the senses and a deep awareness of ourselves. By maintaining this discipline with regularity and devotion, one acquires steadiness of body and mind.
Ashtanga Yoga is a dynamic and graceful system that synchronizes the breath, body and movement (vinyasa). It follows a therapeutic and progressive set sequence of postures. Using the traditional Sanskrit count we enter a dynamic form of yoga. The count provides us with a technique to practice the sequence as a moving meditation.
The Astanga system is ideal for all levels of practitioners. We enter the practice gently, threading the breath and postures gradually, with a pace that suits the individual. As your practice develops so does your repertoire of the sequence.
