A one hour adapted Primary Series Ashtanga Yoga class. Ashtanga Yoga is a moving meditaiton focused on breath and precision.
Developed by the late Pattabhi Jois, Ashtanga is a vigorous style of yoga that incorporates set sequences or series of postures where the breath is linked with movement.
There are six levels of sequences or series in Ashtanga yoga, including the Primary Series, Secondary Series, and four levels of Advanced Series. A newcomer would typically begin with the Primary Series and progress once they've memorized and mastered the sequence.
The energetic nature of all of the series leads to a cleansing of the body through heat, which enhances circulation, improves joint pain, carries impurities away from the body, and builds strength. This class is mildly heated.
