Ashtanga Yoga Practice Week

Ashtanga Yoga Practice week

Who is this practice week for?

 

If you have attended one of our Starting a Home Practice courses or are familiar with the Ashtanga system of yoga, this practice week is a perfect opportunity to deepen your practice. Jock will count you through the sun salutations (Surya Namaskara A- B) and the standing sequence. Followed by guidance that is personalised for your experience and practice.

 

The session starts at 7am but you are free to use the whole two hours or just come for an hour. These four days are designed to give you an opportunity to experience the daily practice of the Ashtanga method. It’s far better to do a little every day than everything on one day!

 

You’re more than welcome to shower afterwards and we’ll also fuel you up with porridge so you can go straight from class to work.

What is Ashtanga Yoga

 

Ashtanga is a systematic sequence of predetermined flowing postures linked together with the breath. Intended to be practiced daily, this powerful, healing practice is a specific sequence of postures (asanas) linking breath (pranayama) and movement (vinyasa.) Ashtanga is an athletic flow combining strength, flexibility and stamina for a complete practice.

 

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is different from many yoga classes in the West in that the order of asanas is completely predefined. A practice will comprise four main parts: an “opening sequence,” one of the six main “series”, a back-bending sequence, and a set of inverted asanas, referred to as the “finishing sequence.” Practice always ends with savasana.
