Ashtanga is an incredibly powerful and therapeutic practice that has the potential to create a vibrantly healthy body and ultimately calm the mind.
At the heart of this practice is breath synchronised with movement to create a dynamic flow, so be prepared to work hard and expect to get a little sweaty as the focus on one of the tools ‘ujjayi breath’ will generate an intense internal heat as you move around the mat.
The Primary Series is a set sequence of postures designed to bring strength, flexibility, and endurance to the body. It is designed to purify the body through the breath and the movement to invoke a stillness of the mind.
This class follows the traditional format of the Ashtanga Primary Series – sun salutations, standing poses, seated poses, and closing sequence poses. Class ends with shavasana (relaxation).
Justine Clifford (Yoga Alliance Dip):
Justine discovered Yoga in her early 20’s as a means to find some peace in a chaotic world juggling both a full time career in marketing & voluntary work with a various charities.
She discovered that Yoga was extremely calming and helped to bring some clarity at a time when you can feel a little lost. She particularly loved Yoga’s healing properties as she went on to learn more about the body’s energy systems.
To deepen both her own practice and go on to share this gift with others, Justine has recently qualified with The Yoga People completing 200hr Yoga Teacher Training in Ashtanga Vinyasa and Rocket.
Just looks forward very much to helping you discover the benefits of Yoga and the joy and peace it can bring.
