Ashtanga Yoga

Ashtanga Yoga is a form of Hatha Yoga that uses a powerful sequence of postures combined
with breath to create an internal heat that opens the muscles and purifies the body. Ashtanga
Yoga is an ancient systematic practice of yoga that slowly builds in difficulty to allow students
to safely access their full potential. Focus on breath, balance, and energy allows students to
bring all their attention to the flow of postures in moving meditation. Ashtanga yoga is a
rigorous, physically demanding practice.

Suitable for people with a regular yoga practice and having experience in Ashtanga Yoga.
