Ashtanga yoga is pure classical Indian yoga made popular by K. Pattabhi Jois in the early 20th century. In Ashtanga, we travel through flowing, strong postures synchronized with the breath. Once yoga postures become familiar, we naturally feel a mind-body connection from the breath to the specific movement. With practice, this connection allows us to sink deeper into the movements, improving not only overall flexibility, but also stamina, strength and endurance.
