ASHTANGA YOGA FAQ'S WHAT'S ASHTANGA YOGA? Ashtanga is a breath-centered, healing method of yoga. The heartbeat of the practice is the synchronization of breath and movement called vinyasa. This yoga method follows a set sequence starting with the Primary Series. Through conscious breathing, purposeful movement, and concentration the practice gradually creates steadiness in body and mind. Read on. WHAT'S A LED CLASS? In a led class, postures of the Primary Series (full or half) are taught and paced by a teacher. Students are guided as a group in unison through the sequence. WHAT'S A MYSORE STYLE CLASS? In a Mysore style class, students learn and practice the series of postures appropriate for them at their own pace. Students receive one to one guidance from the teacher within a group setting. This traditional way of learning and practicing is ideal for beginning students, as well as experienced practitioners.

STUDENT REVIEW "I took the Ashtanga Half Series this morning and it was excellent. The location of River Garden is in an easy to get to area and the space has a really minimalist, but soothing atmosphere. Kristen was teaching. I found her very personable and knowledgeable about modifications, adjustments, and running through the series in an easy to understand way. Ashtanga is not for the faint of heart, but it definitely can be for everyone. The drop in price was affordable and I felt it was a good value." —Liz J.
