This is a modern adaptation of the classical Primary Series of Ashtanga Vinyasa that takes into consideration the normal build and activities of the common everyday person.

The Primary Series of Ashtanga Vinyasa is a set sequence designed to build endurance, flexibility and strength through repetitive practice. The sequence is accompanied with the use of the Ujjayi breath (also known as the victorious breath) where the throat is tightened and an ocean-like sound is created through the breath. This breathing technique creates heat within the body and helps the body loosen up for poses that require more flexibility or openness of the body.

The class is open to all levels. Modifications and progressions are provided.

Depending on the level of the whole class, more asanas (poses) may be added.

By developing a more frequent / consistent practice, the student will notice an increase in endurance and improvement in breathing. By teaching the body with the same repetitive sequence, the practice eventually becomes a moving meditation.

This aims to develop the focus and mindfulness by bringing awareness to the breath and movement of the body together at the same time. By regulating the breath, the mind becomes calm, the body is relieved of stress.

This is best practiced with an empty stomach or at least having the last meal taken an hour prior to taking this class.

It is important to note that Yoga has many types and the practice shall depend on the need and condition of the student. For this particular practice (Ashtanga Vinyasa), which focuses more on the physical aspect of Yoga, students with certain medical condition or physical limitation must consult with their doctor and also inform/reach out to the teacher to discuss whether this type of Yoga is suitable for them.
