The Ashtanga Yoga practice is a physically vigorous form of yoga which includes synchronization of the breath and movement within a set sequence of postures.  The focus on the breath allows the practitioner to let go of distracting thoughts, or “control the mind.”  This 75-minute, short form Ashtanga class includes the traditional opening and closing chants, Sun A and Sun B, the six essential asanas, and as much of the primary series and closing postures as time allows.  Yogis new to Ashtanga are welcome!
