Ashtanga Yoga is the original Vinyasa Yoga. If you understand Ashtanga, you can easily understand all other forms of Vinyasa, Rocket Yoga and Power Yoga. Ashtanga is an 8 limbed method designed to physically and mentally cleanse the body and nervous system and prepare the practitioner to powerfully face what the world has to offer. Ashtanga’s physicality is matched by the power of its philosophy. This weekend is a journey that will give you a complete yoga practice that can be molded to match every phase of your life.
