YOGA - ASHTANGA VINYASA FLOW

There are many different kinds of yoga that exist and it can be difficult to figure out which particular style is right for you. Most styles of yoga are based on the same basic yoga poses (called asanas), however the experience of one style can be radically different than another.

 

New Star Studio offers Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. It is a style of yoga popularized by K. Pattabhi Jois during the 20th century which is often promoted as a modern-day form of classical Indian yoga.

Like Hatha, Vinyasa yoga is a general term that describes many different styles of yoga. It essentially means movement synchronized with breath and is a vigorous style based on a rapid flow through sun salutations. You may also see a Vinyasa class referred to as a flow class, which refers to the continuous flow from one yoga posture to the next.

An Ashtanga Vinyasa class is often led through the traditional Ashtanga series poses, coupled with the creative flow element of a Vinyasa class, stringing poses together to make a sequence. For a more fluid, gentle-paced class with varied class experience, our class is an excellent choice.

 

Our teacher's approach emphasizes the development of self-awareness through precision in movement and attention to posture and breath. We strive to provide students a fun and supportive environment, giving variations and modifications, so that yoga lovers of all levels can explore poses at their own pace. By cultivating mindfulness and ensuring safety through strong emphasis on steady breath and foundational alignment, prepare to sweat and leave the class feeling energised and focused.

 

Yoga is beyond the mat, explore how it can harmonize and strengthen the body and the mind.
