ASHTANGA YOGA

ASHTANGA YOGA

Founded by Krishna Pattabhi Jois in Karnataka, India.

Ashtanga Yoga students are expected to memorise a sequence and to practice it without being led by the teacher. The style is energetic, synchronising breath with movements.

How to practice:

Ashtanga Yoga is a vigorous, dynamic style wherein asanas are performed in the form of sequences. Yogis stay 5-10 breaths in each posture moving into the next asana.
