Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga was founded by K. Pattabhi Jois during the twentieth century. He acquired his knowledge from his Guru, Shri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya. Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga emphasises a key component known as a Tristana (three places of action or attention) and Vinyasa, which is a combination of breath and movement.
There are core concepts for Ashtanga vinyasa yoga practice, encompassing the three levels of purification: the body, nervous system and the mind. They are to be performed in conjunction with each other. The Intermediate series is called Nadi Shodhana, which means purification of the nervous system. It strengthens and cleanses the nervous system and the energy channels. The series follows the same progression as the primary series with the addition of intense back-bending asana and other advanced yoga postures.
Traditional Hatha Yoga
Hatha yoga seeks to unite mind, body and spirit through five elements –
Asana (postures), Pranayama (yogic breathing), Mudra (body gestures), Bandha (energy locks) & Shatkarma (inner cleansing).
These body-centred practices under hatha yoga not only strengthen and cleanse the physical body, but they also cultivate prana (life-force energy) and invoke kundalini (dormant spiritual energy).
While practising hatha yoga, you will also have the chance to learn about yin and restorative yoga as part of our 300-hour Yoga TTC. You will be taught intermediate and advanced-level hatha yoga. Spanning over a period of 28 days, this TTC will enhance your experience and knowledge of other yoga practices and traditions as well.
