Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is one of the most dynamic flowing forms of yoga, designed to harmonise and connect body, mind and spirit. Vinyasa is key to the ashtanga system : the breath is synchronized with movement and linking one posture to the another. The practice is based on the eight (ashta) -limb (-anga) Path, as described in the ancient texts of the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali.
We will practice the modified primary series of the ashtanga yoga tradition, as taught by Sri K Pattabhi Jois. We will focus on vinyasa, asana (posture), pranayama (breath), drishti (gazing points) and bandha’s (locks) – the tools that turn practice into a moving meditation.The practice purifies and strengthens the body. Expect a dynamic practice, breathwork and meditation.
Yin Yoga is deeply stimulating and very relaxing for body and mind. We practice relaxing long held ground postures to stimulate and balance the flow of energy in the connective tissues of the body. We learn to embrace the present moment and be in peace with ourselves.
