Astanga Led

“"Yoga is good for man because the physical body improves, the nervous system improves, the mind improves, the intellect improves..."”

~Sri K. Pattabhi Jois

Astanga yoga is a fast-paced dynamic form of yoga with a specific series of postures

This Astanga Led class is guided by the teacher in the traditional way, working slowly, steadily and with focus, inviting participants into their own delightful yoga experience. You will learn the first part of the sequence of postures of the Primary Series of the Astanga Vinyasa Yoga System, at a moderate pace.

 

This Astanga Led class is a vigorous and dynamic practice. You will be guided by the teacher through the first half of the traditional sequence of postures from the Primary Series of the Astanga Vinyasa Yoga System, working slowly, steadily and with focus, so to increase strength, flexibility and concentration of the mind.

 

Astanga yoga is a living tradition that has been passed down through a lineage of devotion to practical experience, experiment and study. Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois began his studies with Krishnamacharya in 1927 learning this method of practice. Together they formed the Astanga yoga system whereby the sequencing of movement combined with the internal forms of the practice (breath, posture and drishti/steady gaze) enable the student to engage in a regular ritual of focused movement, creating space to be present. Traditionally the method is taught one-on-one as a self-practice within the supportive context of community. This traditional method is called Astanga Mysore.

 

Aside from regular self-practice, following a led class a few times a month is encouraged to learn the correct vinyasa for the sequence. One vinyasa is a breath and a movement linked together. The different series are made up of a continuous string of vinyasas. There’s no need to remember all the vinyasas you have been instructed in the led class if your self-practice is part of it at this time. This is a dynamic and physically demanding form of focussed movement. Over time, you will build a familiarity with the sequence and poses, enabling you to explore the possibilities within each one and the practice as a whole.

 

We offer led classes at both beginners level for those who are new to the practice, and all levels/experienced for those who are physically more advanced in their self-practice.
