What is Ashtanga?
Ashtanga is a system of yoga which involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of postures, a process producing intense internal heat and a profuse, purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and internal organs. The result is improved circulation, a light, strong body, and a calm mind. Ashtanga is physically rigorous, but with time and practice it becomes a mindful, moving meditation.
Pacific Ashtanga Yoga Shala passes on the system of Ashtanga Yoga as it is taught by Shri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India.
