Ashtanga yoga is an energetic and dynamic form of yoga. Movement is synchronised with the breath as you travel through a set series of therapeutic postures.
What are the benefits? Through steady regular practice, Ashtanga yoga can be seen as a meditation in movement, a way of bringing about a sense of well-being, not to mention a great all round cardiovascular exercise; building strength, stamina, flexibility and tone.
