This traditional yoga practice is done through a set of poses (asanas) with an emphasis on linking the breath (prana) and movement. The style incorporates a heating breath and actively moves through a series of postures to heat the body and encourage sweating. The opening sequence begins with Sun Salutations (A & B) followed by several standing asanas and ends with basic seated postures from the Ashtanga Primary Series. Each pose is a preparation for the next and is traditionally practiced in sequence. Class ends with the closing sequence and Savasana. Modifications are given.
