ASHTANGA YOGA - GENERAL GUIDELINES FOR BEGINNERS

⁃ it's a dynamic practice

⁃ movement on breath

⁃ each pose is linked

⁃ drishti, the gazing or focal point. You will be asked to look at a specific point, this channels the mental energy; the mind learns how to concentrate. The eyes are never closed in the practice 

⁃ bandhas, the Sanskrit word for 'energy locks' it involves the contraction or squeezing of muscles in order to 'close' or move the energy in a conscious way. According to yogic scripture; the control of muscles and nerves controls the breath. Control the breath and you control the mind. Bandhas are a means of extending control over breath 

⁃ the most important aspect of the practice; the breath. It is the key to achieve tranquility and power in the practice. Ujjayi breath (aka Ocean Breath) is a breathing technique applied throughout the practice which helps generate heat in the body. It is breathing with sound. You create a hissing, ocean like sound which comes from the back of the throat. Focusing on the sound of your breath turns your attention inwards

⁃ yoga is best done on an empty stomach so do not eat just before class 

⁃ try not to drink too much before class or during the practice 

⁃ let your teacher know before class in the case of pregnancy, injuries or health issues

Thank you for joining our classes ❤
