Service Description

Ashtanga Vinyasa is a dynamic and physically challenging style of yoga that follows a specific and structured sequence of postures. Developed by K. Pattabhi Jois, Ashtanga Vinyasa incorporates breath, movement, and specific gaze points to create a continuous and flowing practice. Here are key elements: Vinyasa: The practice is characterized by vinyasa, the synchronization of breath with movement. Each movement is linked to an inhale or exhale, creating a seamless flow between poses. Asana Sequences: Ashtanga Vinyasa follows a set sequence of asanas (postures) grouped into different series, including Primary Series (Yoga Chikitsa), Intermediate Series (Nadi Shodhana), and Advanced Series. Practitioners progress through these series with consistent practice. Sun Salutations: The practice typically begins with Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskara) to warm up the body and establish a steady rhythm. Sun Salutations are an integral part of each series. Ujjayi Breath: Ashtanga Vinyasa emphasizes Ujjayi breath, a specific pranayama technique characterized by a gentle constriction of the throat, creating a soft and audible breath. Ujjayi breath helps build internal heat and concentration. Bandhas: The engagement of energy locks, or bandhas (specifically Mula Bandha and Uddiyana Bandha), is crucial in Ashtanga Vinyasa. These locks enhance stability, strength, and energy flow within the body. Drishti (Gaze Points): Each asana is associated with a specific drishti or gaze point. Drishtis help to direct and focus attention, fostering a meditative aspect within the physical practice. Mysore Style: Ashtanga Vinyasa classes may be conducted in the Mysore style, where practitioners move through the sequence at their own pace, receiving individualized adjustments and guidance from the teacher. Regular Practice: Traditionally, Ashtanga Vinyasa is practiced six days a week, with a break on Saturdays and moon days. Consistent practice is considered essential for progress and mastery. Ashtanga Vinyasa offers a disciplined and systematic approach to yoga, emphasizing strength, flexibility, and mindfulness. It is suitable for practitioners seeking a challenging and structured practice. Beginners often start with the Primary Series and gradually progress as they become more proficient. It's recommended to practice under the guidance of an experienced teacher to ensure proper alignment and understanding of the method.
