WHAT IS ASHTANGA VINYASA YOGA means 8 limbed yoga, eight steps yoga. It is an ancient system that can lead to greater awareness.The eight limbed of Ashtanga Yoga can be best explained and described as eight disciplines to promote healthy living, cleansing to our mind, body and spirit.
They are: YAMAS (respect toward others) NIYAMA (self-restraint) ASANA (postures) PRANAYAMA (breath control) PRATYAHARA (detach at will from the senses) DHARANA ( concentration) DHYANA (meditation) SAMADHI (contemplation)
Ashtanga Vinyasa YOGA involves the flowing movement of yoga postures (asanas) synchronized with the breath (ujayi pranayama) and movement (vinyasa). This process produces intense internal heat that thins the blood so that it can circulate and flow more freely. Improving then blood circulations, relieving joint pain and discomforts to our ligaments and tendons, removing toxins and improving or decreasing diseases to our organs.
The purifying sweat that we produce in our practice detoxifies our body, muscles and organs by letting the impurities excrete, leaving our body. It is the movement in meditation that helps improve focus, mental clarity, concentration, which then improves to relieve the stresses of the day to day life.
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga practice is accessible for everyone, as modifications are always available and given to all practitioners of all levels. Practitioners are encouraged to tune into their own body, know your limits, know your edge, know when to surrender and know when to challenge yourself as to how you are feeling on that day and in that moment.
Regular practice suggested is 3 times a week which can enhance, feel the difference of your increase energy, endurance, flexibility, strength, mindfulness and concentration and focus. Not to exclude the healthy wholistic benefits to reducing stress, decreasing cholesterol, hypertension, weight loss, skin conditions and many other chronic illness.
What if you are not Flexible? This is a very common question and also one of the most common misconceptions that prevents people form coming to try a yoga session. YOGA practice is not about how flexible you are, it is about comforming to the postures and breath with your own individual ability at that present practice, knowing where you are at that moment, your limitations,and awareness to your potential with dedicated, commitment practice. With regular attendance to your practice, the flexibility, strength and the ability of reaching your goal will grow, blossom and increase to amaze you what you can become.
PREPARING for Ashtanga Vinyasa class, it is recommended for a practice shala (studio or room) to be kept warm to conform to our body heat at about 85-88 degrees, sometimes warmer in summer days or with more attendance and breath in the shala.
The combination of the heated room and the synchronized breath results in deep changes into the practice, deepening, lengthening, increasing strength, flexibility, toning, shaping, purifying, detoxifying, cleansing and most importantly preventing injuries to our joints, tendons, ligaments, muscles allowing moisture to all.
Try not to eat something so heavy at least 1-2 hours prior to class, fruits, veg snack, pretzel, handful granola or nuts, 6-8 oz of water. It is best during the practice to drink after class not during the practice, bring a face towel and a towel for your mat. The shala also provides water, mat, face towel and mat towel for your use if you do not have one. ATTIRE: yoga clothing allowing movement, shorts, or exercise pants, tanks, or sports bras for women or fitted tees. no loose tees recommended for women because of our inversion so something fitting to the stomach area is suggested. Men can take shirts off during class. No socks in Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Practice, we are barefoot.
At this time, we do not have a shower just yet but soon a goal for the future. Restroom available for wipe down if you need to go to work after practice.
