What is Ashtanga Yoga? It’s a pretty disciplined and classical approach to yoga. It came to us through Pattabhi Jois via his teacher, Krishnamacharya. Ashtanga Yoga is progressive and linear. You start where you are. You start where you can and you practice and repeat 6-days per week and track your own progression.
Ashtanga yoga is primarily a self-practice. That’s what is cool about it! You just try and keep trying and see how you progress. When you can, you seek out a qualified teacher. So here’s our favourite Ashtangi, Tina Bock, offering you an express primary series for beginners. This is a perfect place to start your Ashtanga Yoga practice!
If this is too much to start, feel free instead to begin JUST with sun salutations. Maybe you’ll do 1 round of sun salutations, maybe 2 or 3. You just do what you can and then come back again the next day and try again. Ashtanga Yoga may seem intimidating for beginners but it is actually a very accessible yoga practice since it’s progressive and linear. Ashtanga Yoga really takes a “do what you can” kind of attitude to your yoga practice.
By far our most requested (and one of the world’s most sought after yoga teacher training course. This 200hr Yoga-Alliance Registered Teacher Training is the perfect foundation for becoming a professional yoga teacher.
