As nights get cooler and days get shorter, RYT-200 Brynn Cunningham returns to bring you her Warm Ashtanga Mix. Autumn is a wonderful time to incorporate this practice as a means to fire up the body and soul!
Ashtanga is a system of yoga transmitted to the Western world by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois of India. This method of yoga involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive, fixed series of postures—a process producing intense internal heat and a purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. Our studio mix incorporates the Primary Series, Second Series and Third Series linked with a flowing vinyasa, challenging you to maintain ujjayi breath, energy locks and a soft gaze throughout the dynamic practice. This vigorous, athletic class is open to all levels - intermediate students will be challenged to discover their growing edge while beginners will learn foundational asanas and a traditional practice.
We will stray from tradition (typically Ashtanga is taught sans music) by playing upbeat music that will keep the energy fun and light-hearted.
Class times: 5-6:30 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 24; Oct. 22; Nov. 19; and Dec. 10
