Ashtanga comes from Mysore in India and is a set sequence of postures linked together through movement. The postures become one at a time more challenging and the attention is on the breath. Each movement of the body fits within the breath in a calm and focused way. You can call it a breathing moving practice.
The first series is called Primary Series and consists of Sun Salutations, a standing sequence, a seated sequence, backbends and a closing sequence. There are 6 series in the Ashtanga tradition, Primary series is the one usually taught in led classes. In a led Primary Series class the teacher calls the postures, and the students follow the cueing. This class is usually led in Sanskrit. Due to the repetition over weeks of the same postures the students can see their practice advance before their eyes. As always variations are offered when needed.

This 90-minute class takes place once a month. Please don’t be dissuaded by the term “masterclass“ This is a wonderful opportunity for all of you who want to dig deeper, who want to learn more about your yoga practice, about your body and mind. You don’t have to be a super advanced practitioner. (But advanced practitioners are welcome, of course.) If you are keen to understand more and willing to work, our monthly, 90-minute masterclass will suit you well. Each session will be dedicated to one or several related challenging poses. Our goal is not to master those poses in a ready-made approach, but to break them down in an intelligent way and to really understand and make the poses accessible. Each session will include a brief discussion of relevant philosophy and anatomy, a carefully sequenced class to prepare the body, an in-depth look at each challenging pose including accessible variations, relaxation, and meditation.
