ASHTANGA LITE: Ashtanga yoga is a 5000 year old sequence of postures designed to bring strength, flexibility and endurance to the body and a sense of stillness to the mind. Each movement of this dynamic yoga is synchronized with the breath. Though the class will be “talked through”, it is likely that you will evolve to a Mysore (self-guided) style practice.
