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

In the Astanga led classes you will learn the first part of the sequence of postures of the Primary Series of the Astanga Vinyasa Yoga System. The class consists out of a fixed series of postures, is guided by the teacher and focuses on increasing strength, flexibility and concentration of the mind.  
 

Astanga Led

The sequence of movement combined with breath, posture and drishti (steady gaze) invites the student to move with focus and presence. Over time, you will build a familiarity with the sequence and poses, enabling you to explore the possibilities within each posture and the practice as a whole. We offer Astanga led classes at beginners level for those who are new to the practice and all levels/experienced for those who are physically more advanced in their practice.

Astanga Mysore

Astanga yoga is a living tradition that has been passed down through a lineage of teachers. Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois began his studies with Krishnamacharya in 1927. Together they formed the Astanga yoga system. Traditionally the method is taught one-on-one as a self-practice. This is called Astanga Mysore and is, besides the Astanga led classes, also taught at Delight Yoga.

Experienced Astanga Led

You may see the “experienced” Astanga led class offered on Fridays. This full led primary class is for those with some experience with the Astanga sequence as there is less verbal instruction. However, once somewhat familiar with the beginning of the sequence, students are encouraged to attend this class weekly and simply follow along until they reach their final Mysore class posture in the series or are instructed to stop.
