New Students Intro Special : 3 Classes for $30 (use within 30 days)View Class Description
The practice at AstaYoga is an Ashtanga-based practice. Traditionally, Ashtanga is taught in a personalized way, one posture at a time, but at Asta, we present the Ashtanga practice in a modified way in a group setting. The practice begins with sun salutations, then moves through a series of standing postures, followed by seated postures and closes with a finishing sequence that includes silent meditation and rest.
As Asta, the breath is the heart of the practice. We teach a technique of breathing called Ujjayi Pranayama - deep breathing with sound through the nose only - that is synchronized with the movement. We believe the benefits of the practice come primarily from the breath, which is why we believe if you can breathe, you can do this practice.
A mat and towel (optional). We offer a variety of props that you could use, free of charge. We also offer rental mats for a small fee.
If you're unable to show up for class, you can cancel your reservation directly in Momence (our membership platform) or email us and we will take care of it. Please do so before the start of class or we will not be able to honor the credit back to your account.
We ask that all practitioners to be vaccinated. There are no social distancing requirements or mask requirements.
Absolutely! Most of our classes are geared towards students of all levels. Though we would highly recommend our "Ashtanga Modified Primary" and "Mixed-Level" classes as a good entry point into Ashtanga. You can learn more here.
