This form of Yoga is popular among those who seek the practice to be intense. It gained popularity about two decades ago when western practitioners wanted Yoga to be more of physically intensive practice.
The popular “Power Yoga” also has its roots in this practice.
The practise involves a fixed series of Asana that one would master over a period of time. It totally contains six series and the first series itself would take 3 to 5 years to master. Repetition is key and the practice is demanding.
The Asana practice is combined with Dristi (specific points where one should focus) and Ujjayi breathing that builds focus and heat in thebody.
This is suitable for intermediate to advanced practitioners. To pursue Ashtanga Yoga you could enrol in our 6am or 8.10am batch.
