Service Description

Ashtanga Basic typically refers to the foundational elements of Ashtanga Yoga, a dynamic and structured style of yoga that follows a specific sequence of postures. Here are some key aspects of Ashtanga Basic: Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskara): The practice often begins with a series of Sun Salutations, which are dynamic sequences of poses performed in coordination with the breath. These sequences help warm up the body and establish a rhythmic flow. Primary Series (Yoga Chikitsa): Ashtanga Basic usually involves focusing on the Primary Series, also known as Yoga Chikitsa. This series comprises a set sequence of poses designed to purify and strengthen the body. It includes standing poses, seated poses, twists, and inversions. Vinyasa: Ashtanga Yoga is characterized by the emphasis on vinyasa, the mindful linking of breath with movement. Each pose is connected by a specific vinyasa sequence, creating a continuous and flowing practice. Ujjayi Breath: Ashtanga Basic places importance on Ujjayi breath, a specific pranayama technique involving a gentle constriction of the throat to create a smooth and audible breath. Ujjayi breath helps maintain focus, build internal heat, and synchronize breath with movement. Drishiti (Gaze Points): Practitioners are guided to focus their gaze on specific points during the practice, known as drishtis. These gaze points help to cultivate concentration and internal awareness. Mysore Style: Ashtanga Basic may introduce students to the Mysore style of practice, where individuals perform the sequence at their own pace with guidance from the teacher. This self-paced method allows for personalized adjustments and progression. Introduction to Yoga Philosophy: Ashtanga Basic may include an introduction to fundamental yoga philosophy concepts, such as the Eight Limbs of Yoga as outlined in Patanjali's Yoga Sutras. Ashtanga Basic provides a solid foundation for those new to Ashtanga Yoga, emphasizing the essential elements of the practice. It is an accessible starting point for beginners before progressing to more advanced poses and sequences. It's recommended to practice under the guidance of a certified Ashtanga teacher to ensure proper alignment and understanding of the method.
