Ashtanga Yoga Retreats around the world
Ashtanga: In Ashtanga Yoga students perform a set series of postures, always in the same order, beginning with a sequence know as Sun Salutations, and move from one pose to the next in a continual flow that links movement to breath. This vigorous practice produces intense internal heat that creates a strong body and a calm mind. Ashtanga Yoga builds strength, flexibility, and stamina, and is often considered to be more physically demanding than other types of yoga. Developed by K. Pattabhi Jois, this style of yoga uses a system based on six series of increasing difficulty. Ashtanga is the inspiration for the majority of vinyasa style yoga classes and for Power Yoga.
