Ashtanga yoga is a well structured, high intensity traditional style of Yoga. The 75 minute long class will take postures from the primary series working through them at a powerful pace.
Ashtanga Yoga may be the class for you if you like structure and discipline in your practice. We wouldn't recommend the class if you are new to practicing asanas (postures) or have any sensitivity within your body, whether it be in your muscles or joints.
Ashtanga Yoga will increase your strength quicker than most other styles of Yoga as well as improving your flexibility and helping with inner peace.
Yoga during pregnancy is effective in helping us to prepare physically and emotionally for pregnancy, childbirth and beyond. It helps improve strength, mobility and endurance, as well as reducing stress and anxiety. Throughout your prenatal yoga practice you can become attuned to your body, learning how to keep the pelvis neutral and lengthen through the spine to improve and maintain good posture, as well as opening through the hips and hamstrings. During pregnancy the weight of the baby can cause an excessive tilt of the pelvis, this can lead to a sway and pain in the lower back which yoga can help alleviate.
This class will take a light-hearted approach to increasing postural awareness and alignment, working to your own level through a series of postures designed to prepare the body and mind for pregnancy and labour. We will also explore some very gentle (and optional) pranayama (breath work) to help your through the process and finish with a relaxation practice.
