Ashtanga Yoga › Corrie Ananda

Ashtanga Yoga is a dynamic, flowing and physically demanding practice. Ashtanga synchronises breath and movement to produce an internal heat and is good for building strength and mobility. An ashtanga yoga practise moves through a set sequences of poses and vinyasas. Ashtangi's start with the primary series, although for most of us, the primary series has more than enough to challenge us. Ashtanga can be practiced by fit and mobile beginners, but we recommend taking it slowly and with variations. If you enjoy Ashtanga Yoga, you may also like vinyasa yoga, power yoga, Forrest yoga and Jivamukti yoga. We also recommend Yin Yoga as a really excellent complement to Ashtanga.
