Ashtanga is a dynamic and meditative yoga style that everyone practices while listening to the boundaries of their own body and mind. The practice challenges the body and mind to become stronger and more flexible. In the guided Ashtanga class we also practice a breathing technique, which helps in creating a rhythm according to the vinyasa practice. It is a good idea not to eat for 2 hours before the Ashtanga and to avoid drinking unnecessary water during the exercise, in addition it is not recommended to do Ashtanga yoga in the first trimester of pregnancy.
In the 90-minute Ashtanga class, the series goes further and the lesson is physically challenging.
Ashtanga classes are currently held in Finnish.
