Through the context of the physical practice of postures, breathing and specific focal points, the mind is trained to be increasingly sub- tler until it can perceive the most refined sensa- tions and experiences. The doorway to the inner world of transformation and self-realisation un- locks and students concentrate their mind on the deepest experience of truth within themselves. The term Ashtanga yoga originates in Patan- jai’s Yoga Sutras that describe the eight-limbs of Ashtanga yoga. These include yama ( socially oriented moral observances), niyama (personally oriented observances), asana (physical postures), pranayama (breath control), pratyahara (sense withdrawl), dharana (concentration), dhyana (meditation), and samadhi (peace).

Surya Namaskar, “Sun Salutation” – 4 min This video is a really detailed breakdown of how to do the sun salutation in the ashtanga tradition. Desk yoga – 4 min Very practical video, albeit a bit of a cheesy teaching style. Bedtime yoga – 6 min I suggest getting ready for bed before you try this so you can just nod off afterwards.

In Ashtanga it’s traditional to have Led Primary classes on a Friday.
