The Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is a style of yoga codified and popularized by K. Pattabhi Jois. Ashtanga means eight limbs or branches, of which asana or physical yoga posture is merely one branch, breath or pranayama is another. Vinyasa means a gradual progression or a step-by-step approach that systematically and appropriately takes a student from one point and safely lands them at the next point. It is sometimes described as the “breathing system,” or the union of breath and movement that make up the steps.
Open to ALL practitioners, regardless of whether you’ve taken 1 or 1,000 yoga classes. I allow each student to move at her/his own pace & access the pose(s) in a way that is most nourishing to each individual body. The hardest part is getting to class & stepping on your mat; it always is, but your mind & body will be thanking you after. Promise.
