Ashtanga Yoga focuses on the synchronization of the breath with movement through a series of postures intended to produce internal heat and purify the body. As internal heat rises, the body releases purifying sweat that has a detoxifying effect on the body.
Ashtanga Yoga is a highly structured and challenging form of yoga that consists of five intense series of postures. It is a demanding practice that builds core strength, tones the body, improves circulation, and calms the mind. While not necessarily recommended for beginner practitioners, Ashtanga Yoga could be a good fit if you’re looking for a highly structured and physically demanding class.
