Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga - Ashtanga Yoga is an ancient, highly athletic and intensely physical style of yoga that gained popularity in India in the early 1900s. Though most forms of yoga place an emphasis on flexibility, while others may place emphasis on strength, Ashtanga yoga and its challenging and unique postures were created in a way that ensures the body will become strong and toned with regular practice, while maintaining deep flexibility, to create long, lean muscles instead of creating bulky muscles. Though sometimes referred to as the "complete fitness" Yoga, Ashtanga is not just about physical fitness, but touts the belief that through this intense practice with its many "challenge postures," the body and mind are humbled and purified, thus opening the door to "samadhi" or "enlightenment." This "Ashtanga Vinyasa" class will follow traditional Vinyasa format, while incorporating some of Ashtanga's unique poses that you may never have tried before or ever even experienced in another Vinyasa class. Come try something new and have a blast along the way!
