This style of yoga, popularised by Guru Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, stresses the practice of a set series of postures linked by a ‘flowing’ sequence of movements called vinyasa. Vinyasa refers to the alignment of movement and breath – a method which turns static asanas (postures) into a dynamic flow. This is a more strenuous and dynamic class and does NOT require an existing knowledge of the Ashtanga Primary Series.

 – SATURDAY: Focus on hip-opening postures and step-by-step instruction on how to do the vinyasa, or ‘flowing’ sequence that links individual postures.

 – SUNDAY: Focus on back opening and back bending postures to release stiffness and promote strength and flexibility.
