Ashtanga Yoga

Ashtanga is a physically demanding practice, which combines breath and movement to create a moving meditation. Working with a familiar sequence of physical postures allows the mind to quieten and provides a mental break whilst still energising the body.  This system of yoga was brought to us by Sri K Pattabhi Jois.  It is a scientific approach to asana (postures) linked with the breath (vinyasa). Circulation is maximised, the spine is re-aligned, heat is created and toxins are expelled whilst on a subtle level the nervous system is purified. Combining these aspects develops physical, mental and emotional strength.
