Ashtanga Primary Series

Ashtanga Led Class

  • 1 hour 30 minutes

Join Us For This Special Event

Welcome to our Ashtānga yoga class, a 90 minute dynamic and invigorating practice that follows the traditional teachings of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. Prepare to embark on a transformative journey that will challenge your body, focus your mind, and cultivate inner strength and discipline. As you enter the studio, you'll be greeted by a vibrant and energizing atmosphere. The class is led by a skilled and experienced Ashtānga yoga instructor who will guide you through the primary series or a modified version suitable for your level of experience. The primary series is a carefully sequenced set of poses designed to purify and strengthen the body, while cultivating mental clarity and spiritual growth. The class begins with a brief centering and the ashtānga opening chant, allowing you to ground yourself and set an intention for your practice. You'll be guided to synchronize your breath with movement, flowing through a series of sun salutations to warm up the body and build heat from within. This heat will clear energy blockages to allow prāna (energy) to flow more freely and effectively throughout your body. The focus on breath and movement coordination creates a moving meditation, drawing your attention inward and promoting a state of mindfulness. You will be guided through the Primary Series in the traditionally taught manner. Sandskrit counting and posture names are used to guide you to synchronize your breath and movement as you are led through each āsana (posture) and vinyāsa (movement). As the class progresses, you'll move through a specific sequence of standing poses, seated poses, and inversions. Each pose is linked with a smooth and continuous flow of breath, creating a dynamic and energetic practice. The poses build upon each other, providing a framework to deepen your practice over time. Your instructor will provide you with guidance and hands on adjustments to help you get deeper into each pose and to help you to work with and move your prāna (energy) more effectively. Ashtānga yoga encourages a disciplined approach, but it also honors individuality and personal growth. You'll be encouraged to challenge yourself while respecting your limits, finding the balance between effort and ease. Please arrive 10-15 minutes before the beginning of class.
