Powerful and dynamic on many levels. This style of yoga was developed by the late Sri K Pattabhi Jois, in which a set series of postures are linked dynamically to the breath in a flow of movement. This will increase your strength and flexibility. When the set sequence of postures becomes familiar, the mind relaxes and the practice can become deep and meditative, yet still dynamic.
Beginners Ashtanga Yoga:
This class is designed for beginners with no previous experience of Ashtanga yoga.
Ashtanga Yoga Mysore style:
Ashtanga Yoga taught in a self-practice format. The student learns the system, a series of coordinated postures and movement threaded together with a specific yogic breathing technique, at his/her own pace. The practice is modified appropriately for each individual to accommodate all levels, all ages, all types. The only requirement is a willingness to learn!
Susan has spent time studying the teachings of Shiva Rea which shines through in her Vinyasa flow classes. These sessions combine the fluidity of Ashtanga yoga with a varied sequence of postures strung apon the neaklace of breath. As the structure depends entirely on what is really going on in our external environment at that time, no class is ever the same! This allows you to practice postures and techniques that often get forgotten or become stagnant when we are used to practicing a set sequence. The class is suitable for anyone with some experience of ashtanga and/or dynamic vinyasa yoga.
