Ashtanga & Power Flow variations

Ashtanga & Power Flow variations
Ashtanga Yoga classes are taught in a traditional style known as a "led practice" of the Primary Series. The classes are hot and flowing, and sometimes challenging practices for those looking for a stronger style of classical yoga. Ashtanga Yoga combines breath and movement in a specific sequence to create an intense internal heat and purifying sweat, and the result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm and quiet mind. Sometimes called "Vinyasa" or "Power" flow, Traditional Ashtanga Yoga always begins with sun salutations, followed by standing and seated postures, and ends with a closing sequence. There are options and choices and modification throughout, making it accessible to all.

While not an "advanced" style of yoga, it can feel more physical, and these classes generate a lot of sweat! Heartsong Yoga specializes in introducing new students to Ashtanga, even those who have never done yoga before! We practice in a heated room, (about 85 degrees) and the other elements of this style of yoga, breath and core stability, keep the heat up throughout the class.

We host Ashtanga Yoga classes daily, nights, and weekends. New students are always welcome.
Check here for details about the various levels of Ashtanga classes.

Classes that are inspired and influenced by Ashtanga Yoga

Hot Power Flow Yoga, TGI Friday Flow, and Hot Vinyasa Flow classes are also hot and graceful class based on "vinyasa" or continuous flow yoga practices and inspired by the sun salutations of Ashtanga Yoga. (The room is heated) Each has it's own personality...Look for some fun rockin' tunes on Sunday night's Hot Vinyasa Flow class, some amazing inspirations and great music on Friday night's TGIF class, and a slow flow graceful breath and movement class on Wednesday night's class!

Morning Yoga Flow and our afternoon Slow Flow classes are a modification of the traditional sequence, we call it Boomer Yoga after our teacher Beryl Bender Birch's book by the same name, an hour of vinyasa flow that awakens all of the body and strengthens with forward bends, backward bends, twists for back and shoulder therapy. This class is seasonal, and will return in the Spring, 2015

Heartsong is proud to be an Affiliated School of the "Hard and the Soft Yoga Institute" and the teachings of Beryl Bender Birch. This style of yoga can be traced through the Krishnamacharya and Sri K. Pattabhi Jois lineage. It is the choice for those who are looking for a hot practice influenced by classical yoga philosophy, attention to breath, deep relaxation and meditation.
