Ashtanga Vinyasa synchronises breath and movement into a flowing sequence of Asanas(Poses). Practiced correctly it builds strength, flexibility, stamina and helps to boost an overall feeling of wellbeing and calm in the mind. Typically poses are held for 5 breaths before moving into the next pose.
For this class we include breathing techniques, closing mantra and we will repeat a sequence so you become familiar with the poses and can develop your own self practice. This type of yoga can be very therapeutic and the potential for huge growth physically, mentally & spiritually.
Improved Flexibility and Range – You will notice an improvement in your range of motion if you stick to regular practice.
Connecting with the breath – The breath is a powerful tool when it comes to our well-being. If we can learn to connect with the breath, energy also known as the prana, will begin to flow more freely. By allowing our energy to flow, this will give us the skills and tools to push through any emotional and physical blockages. Therefore, allowing us to free both body and mind and relax.
Focuses Your Mind – Yoga encourages a mindful state, helping you to feel relaxed and calm reducing stress levels.
Cardiovascular health – A Vinyasa class is often fast paces making for a great cardiovascular exercise class. Moving with the breath increases your heart rate.
