Ashtanga Yoga is a structured class with a set sequence called the “primary series.” The sequence builds strength and flexibility while also cultivating mental focus and discipline. Students learn the “primary series” in an early morning practice in a self-guided approach with individual instructor guidance. Once a week, the teacher guides the full-sequence for the class together. The pace is active and vigorous.
The Ashtanga Yoga primary series includes rounds of Sun Salutation A, B, standing poses, seated poses, arm balances, twists and closing poses in a set sequence.
