The system of Yoga taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India. This method of Yoga involves synchronizing the breath with a set sequence of postures, which produces intense internal heat and a profuse, purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind.
There are 3 durations of classes available – 60 minutes, 75 minutes and 90 minutes. For the 60 minutes class, it features postures from the first half of the primary series as well as the finishing set of postures. It is a dynamic and vigorous practice that focuses on maintaining the awareness of flow which links breath and movement.
For the 75 minutes class, the first half of the Primary Series is taught up to Navasana, followed by the finishing set of postures. For the 90 minutes class, the whole Primary Series is taught in its traditional sequence. It includes sun a salutation, standing, seated and inverted poses. Endurance and a graceful flow are developed as asanas are weaved through vinyasas. Previous Ashtanga yoga experience strongly recommended in order to benefit from this class.
