Bath Ashtanga Yoga Classes


Bath Ashtanga Yoga, & Bristol Ashtanga Yoga



One-on-one classes or courses teach the Full Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga, covering the five elements: asanas (postures), pranayama (breath), drishti (gaze points), vinyasa (breath-movement synchronization), and bandhas (body locks). Practitioners can then practice at home or join group classes confidently.

Ashtanga Yoga, a dynamic form of Hatha yoga, involves a set sequence of poses held for five breaths, linked by half sun salutations. Popularized by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, it is known for its vigorous and structured approach, focusing on breath synchronization and energetic movements.

The Primary Series, or “Yoga Chikitsa” (yoga therapy), cleanses and tones the body, mind, and senses by clearing energy pathways (nadis) to allow the flow of life force (prana). This sequence aligns the body and strengthens the nervous system, aiding in both mental and physical healing.
