Ashtanga: The Tradition
Join Abi Lynne Wright, E-RYT 200, for a (re)introduction of the Ashtanga Yoga practice. We'll take this in 2 parts:
The Foundations of the practice: Chat about the Ashtanga Yoga practice and history as taught by Pattahbi Jois, talk about the benefits and method of Ashtanga, and work through some of the signature movements and poses though the lens of the Tristana Method (breath, asana and pranayama).
Primary Series Breakdown: In part two we will move through the poses of the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga. We will break down the elements of each pose (through Half-Primary), go over alignment, adjustments, and some tips for working the poses on your own, and talk about how each pose builds on each other and prepares you for what's to come.
Definitely come prepared to move, to shine, to burn brightly!
