Ashtanga Yoga also goes by the name Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. Ideal for toning the body and strengthening the core, it is sometimes also referred to as Power Yoga due to its fast-paced nature. Ashtanga Yoga students memorise a specific series of postures and practice them regularly. After all, our bodies are never exactly the same every day and you will still find new discoveries about your body with each session when doing the same postures!
Anyone who is devoted to their practice can benefit from Ashtanga! Many people think that doing yoga is about being one of the best contortionists out there, but nothing could be farther from the truth. Even Ashtanga Yoga Huddersfield classes, which as mentioned are more dynamic than other yoga classes, place a higher regard to the practitioner’s devotion than ability. There’s no shame in struggling and sticking with modified poses until you’re ready for the more advanced poses!
Ashtanga has six series with a set order of poses that students must learn. Beginners start with a led Primary series class and work their way up as they improve. Led Ashtanga Huddersfield Classes is ideal for first-timers since the teacher will be calling out the postures and vinyasas and the students move in synch. Practicing even outside of classes is highly recommended!
Conversely, traditional Ashtanga Classes are done in a Mysore style environment where students are still in a group class setting but move at their own pace. The instructor is there to adjust and support each individual.
