Ashtanga

Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga as taught Sri K. Pattabhi Jois is a system of postures linked together by breath and movement. This is an ancient and powerful discipline for cultivating physical, mental and spiritual health. Progressive techniques of breath, posture and movement, cleanse, stretch and strengthen the body as well as focus and calm the mind. A deeper experience of the self becomes possible through consistent practice. The Ashtanga yoga practices offered here on YogaGlo will guide you through the traditional Ashtanga series with occasional variations to help you grow your practice.

This one is for you, beginners! Ashtanga yoga is the original vinyasa tradition. Today, you'll learn a flowing practice that will challenge your ability to stay focused on your breath. Move continuously through a strong and accessible sequence that introduces sun salutations, standing postures and sitting postures, including forward bends and twists. Finish with an introduction to headstand (no actual headstands yet!) that will help you build a strong foundation for your future practice.

Explore movements that reveal an expansive, even liberating feeling as you practice backbends from simple upward dog to more advanced poses such as eka pada rajakapotasana (one-legged king pigeon). Working intelligently on the wave of your breath, find the edge of sensation that keeps you safe and strong. Simplify backbends by exploring them as movements that incorporate your shoulders, spine, pelvic floor, quads and hamstrings. Work these muscle groups in a flowing form for deeply satisfying backbends. Props Needed: A block and a strap.
Practice Focus: Backbends

Downward dog is truly man's best friend! Especially when you discover the no-longer-secret internal movements that make this pose a meditation on your central channel. Learn correct shoulder, spine and head movement as you explore different ways of approaching adho mukha svanasana to feel its many levels of concentration. Postures that compliment and enhance downward dog will be tied into the vinyasa movements in and out of the pose.

It is far too common to carry around stress in your shoulders, neck and jaw in the face of everyday life. Tension in these areas of the body can result not only in stiffness, but also contribute to perceiving the world through stressful eyes. By loosening, lengthening and releasing your upper body, you can relieve the fatigue and difficulties you may be carrying around with you. Remember to have fun with your practice in the mean time! Props Needed: A block. Props Suggested: A blanket.
Practice Focus: Neck
