Ashtanga yoga involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of postures—a process producing intense internal heat and a profuse, purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind.
Ashtanga is a very dynamic practice, which challenges the body and the mind on all levels. Through repeated practice the student develops stamina, strength and flexibility but also a greater awareness and understanding of themselves and their potential.
The practice contains three core elements, Breath (Ujjayi pranayama), Bandha (internal locks) & Dristi (gaze point).
The student is required to, put to memory the correct sequence of poses and synchronise every movement with the breath, so that the practice becomes a moving meditation, with each pose being threaded on the breath.
