Ashtanga Yoga is an ancient system of Yoga that was imparted to Sri T. Krishnamacharya in the early 1900′s by his Guru Rama Mohan Brahmachari, and was later passed down to Pattabhi Jois during the duration of his studies with Krishnamacharya, beginning in 1927.
This method of yoga involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of postures—a process producing intense internal heat and a profuse, purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind.
Pure Hot Sequence:
it’s the hot yoga class known as Bikram Yoga with the 26 postures and two breathing techniques done in a heated room up to 40 degrees Celsius and 40 % humidity. The postures are done in two sets with holding them for an interval of time that allows going deep and more focus in the practice. Relaxation or Savasana is given after some postures.
Hot Sequence and Yin:
It’s a beautiful mix of asanas also in the same conditions of the hot room, that starts with the Bikram Yoga postures practiced for one hour and ends with the yin yoga that holds each posture for approximately 5 minutes. Yin yoga deepens the stretch, increases flexibility and breaks the routine of the pure hot sequence.
Yoga supports the accelerated change that is happening in our bodies mentally and physically. It tones the physical body, especially the pelvic floor, hip, and abdominal core muscles, in preparation for the birthing process. It’s mentally relaxing allowing us to trust that our bodies will open up and give birth instinctively.
