ASHTANGA FULL SERIES
Tuesday: 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
at La Villa Coffee Lounge & Roastery
This is an active 90 minute class, practicing the full Primary Series which is arranged in a time-tested sequence designed to specifically align the body, strengthen the nervous system, and increase spinal flexibility.
Emphasis is placed on breathing (Ujjayi), energy locks (Bandhas), gaze (Drishti) and transitions (Vinyasa). Poses are held for five breaths and are interconnected with flowing movements. The same sequence is repeated each class, building strength, flexibility and focus… so that eventually your practice becomes a powerful moving meditation.
The Full Series is a challenge, but the results are life-changing!
WHAT IS ASHTANGA?
Ashtanga Yoga is known in Sanskrit as “Yoga Chikitsa” which means yoga therapy. It is a healing process of cleansing and toning the for the body, mind and senses.
The asanas (poses) are arranged in a time-tested (over 1,000 years!) sequence designed to specifically align the body and strengthen the nervous system. First comes the Sun Salutations, then the Standing Sequence. We then move to the Seated Positions, then end with the Finishing Sequence.
The beauty of Ashtanga is that there is always “room to grow”… there is no need to be intimidated, and there is no competition. You may find you choose to rest during some poses, and modifications are encouraged when needed. Change is guaranteed!
Mats available to rent or to buy. Come for yoga, stay for herbal tea, fresh juice, or La Villa's famous coffee.
The perfect way to start your morning! See you there!
