Yoga is not a fad or a club you goto when you fancy.  It's a committed and dedicated way of life and living. Far long lasting effects Yoga has to be integrated into your daily lifestyle. When the practice is approached with curiosity and a genuine intention to want to develop yourself, transformations start to happen. 

When Ashtanga yoga is practiced in its correct sequential order the practitioner is gradually and gently led 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 are given the opportunity to gain control of the senses and develop a deep awareness of ourselves. By maintaining this discipline with regularity and devotion, one acquires steadiness of the body and the mind on the mat and off of the mat.

Ashtanga Yoga is a dynamic and graceful system that synchronises the breath with the body, this type of movement is called viinyasa. It follows a therapeutic and progressive set sequence of postures. Using the traditional Sanskrit count we enter a methodical and powerful practice. The count provides us with a technique to practice the sequence as a moving meditation step by step and breath by brreath.

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.
