Ashtanga yoga is a vibrant and traditional style of yoga.  The flow of movements is the same in each class and postures (asanas) are held for five full breaths.  The class starts with surya namaskar (sun salutations A and B), followed by a sequence to detoxify and strengthen the body while balancing the central nervous system.  At the end of the class we relax in savasana (corpse pose).

The Ashtanga Initiation classes concentrate on the fundamental poses of the Primary Series and are adapted to the needs of the pupils.  Limiting the number of pupils in the class to ten guarantees the quality of the teaching and the safety of the pupils.  Some experience of Hatha yoga is essential for this class and it is well suited to those who want to deepen their practice.

If Ashtanga interests you but you have no previous experience of yoga, do get in touch as it may be possible to create a Beginner Ashtanga class.
