There is no slider selected or the slider was deleted.

Ashtanga is a dynamic yoga practice, shaping not only flexibility, but also strength and body speed. It is the original for of practice linking in itself asanas, breath with sound “Ujjayi”, drishti (pointing your eyes to the right point) and using the bandhas.
Through the practice of asanas arranged in the right order and through the binding of movement with breath control, the practitioner generates considerable amounts of heat, achieving high body flexibility in a short time. Ashtanga is a practice suitable for everyone.

Mysore style

Ashtanga Yoga Mysore style is a particular form of practice. The classes are devoted both to People who have never practiced yoga, and to those who already know its different forms. Particular positions of the sequence (and their modifictions) are passed on by the teacher according to individual conditions of class participants. Alongside with the increase of skills, the Participant, under the watchful eye of the teacher, interweaves subsequent asanas to his or her practice. There is silence in the room, which allows for deep concentration. The silence is only disturbed by the sound of a breath particular to Ashtanga – the so-called Ujjayi breath. The classes are arranged in one-and-a-half-, two-hour- or two-and-a-half-hour blocks. However, this does not mean that the practice has to last for all the time. It is possible to begin and end your practice at any time. It can last for 15 minutes or 2 hours – it is the question of individual needs and capabilities.

Led Series

It is a class dedicated to the ones who know at least one half of Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series. The sequence of positions is strictly defined, and the tempo of their performance, as opposed to the Mysore-style classes, is imposed by the teacher. Thanks to this, the Practitioners can allow the mind to shut down and surrender to the fluency of the sequence. The characteristic feature of this class is counting of every Vinyasa (that is the binding of breath with the movement, the transitions to the subsequent positions) in Sanskrit.
