What is ashtanga?
Ashtanga is the original power yoga. It is a systematic sequence of predetermined flowing postures linked together with the breath, but without music. If you like a strong power yoga or vinyasa class then you should find this challenging and rewarding. Ashtanga practice comprises four main parts:
•an “opening sequence,”
•one of the six main “series”
•a back-bending sequence
•set of inverted asanas, referred to as the “finishing sequence.”
•Practice always ends with savasana
The mysore method of practice is named after the city of Mysore in South India where Sri. T. Krishnamacharya first taught this method. It is also the city in which Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois lived after he became the holder of this lineage. It is the method in which students memorize the sequence of poses and practice at their own pace. They await help from the teacher, only when necessary. The teacher’s help is individualized according the physical, energetic and spiritual needs and capacities of each student. Each student is individually taught mantras (chanting in Sanskrit), names of poses (in both English and Sanskrit), personalized versions of the practice and anything additional that would provide stability and strength.
