Interpreted from ancient manuscripts by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, Ashtanga Vinyasa (sometimes written Astanga) is a dynamic, physically demanding method of Hatha yoga using vinyasa (literally “movement-breathing system”) to link progressive series of postures. You begin with the Primary Series which detoxifies and aligns the body, building strength, stamina and flexibility. The result is improved circulation, a light strong body and a calm mind.
