The practice of Ashtanga Yoga is based on a sequence of asanas that are linked together by a series of movements, called vinyasa. The vinyasa is coordinated with a breathing technique called ujjayı. The practitioner is able to control and steady the breath, using it to create internal heat in the body that increases strength, stamina and flexibility, while boosting the metabolism. This powerful yoga program results in a well defined, sculpted body.
This yogasana series builds on the basic principles of breath, movement, alignment, and relaxation. The postures featured are some of the most familiar and accessible and add a layer of deeper mental, emotional, and energetic awareness. Mantra, more complex asana, pranayama, and meditation work synergistically to release blockages and cleanse the mind.
