Welcome to our Introduction to Ashtānga Yoga class, a perfect starting point for those new to this dynamic and traditional practice. Ashtānga Yoga is a methodical and structured style that focuses on linking breath with movement, creating a moving meditation. In this class, we will explore the foundational elements of Ashtānga Yoga, including the Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskar), standing postures, and key seated postures. You will learn the fundamental principles of alignment, breath control (Ujjayi Pranayama), and the concept of drishti (gaze points) to cultivate focus and presence in each pose. Our experienced instructor will guide you through the practice, offering modifications and adjustments to ensure that you feel comfortable and supported. The class will emphasize building strength, flexibility, and body awareness, while also providing an opportunity for self-reflection and relaxation. You will gain an understanding of the Ashtānga Yoga sequence and its traditional structure, setting a strong foundation for your future practice. This introductory class is designed to help you develop a solid yoga foundation, enhance your strength and flexibility, and explore the meditative aspects of the practice.
