During a led Ashtanga class, the teacher guides the entire class through the Primary (or Half-Primary) series sequence. The pace is moderate in order to complete the practice within 75-90 minutes. While Mysore-style classes are recommended for Ashtanga beginners, all students are welcome to attend and practice at an intensity appropriate for them. Ashtanga is a traditional style of yoga developed by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in the mid-twentieth century. Named after the eight limbs of yoga as laid out by Patanjali (asta ('eight') + anga ('limb')), Ashtanga yoga incorporates the essence of each of those limbs in one dynamic, flowing sequence of postures. This asana sequence is inextricably linked to deep, controlled breath, and is performed in the same order each time, allowing students to learn the breath and asana sequence by heart. This is a rejuvenating practice, offering practitioners the ability to develop strength, flexibility, mental focus, tenacity, inner calm, and patience.
