Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is a style of yoga codified and popularized by K. Pattabhi Jois during the 20th century which is often promoted as a modern-day form of classical Indian yoga. Ashtanga means eight limbs or branches, of which asana or physical yoga posture is merely one branch, breath or pranayama is another. Both Pattabhi Jois and Sharath Jois, his grandson, encourage practice of Ashtanga Yoga - all eight limbs. The first two limbs - Yamas and Niyamas - are given special emphasis to be practiced in conjunction with the 3rd and 4th limbs (asana and pranayama).
Here is a bit about our Yoga Teacher Reet
My background includes martial arts, athletics and more recently a newfound love for aerial yoga and movement class.
I am a critical care trained registered nurse and Ashtanga Vinyasa teacher.
Many years ago, I discovered that yoga complemented other sports I was passionate about.
After completing my yoga teacher training in India, I am enthusiastic about sharing its benefits.
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is a fast-paced, flowing series of sequential postures.
During class, I will guide you through each posture, with a strong emphasis on strength, mobility and alignment, while using the breath to link movement.
