Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is a style of yoga created by K. Pattabhi Jois during the 20th century, often promoted as a modern-day form of classical Indian yoga.
Ashtanga yoga is energetic, aiming to develop both strength and flexibility whilst synchronising breath with a traditional sequence of postures, introducing new postures as and when these are appropriate.
The aim of yoga is to create unity with body, mind and spirit, as the saying goes ‘yoga is not about touching your toes it’s about what you learn on the way down’.
Jules aim’s to enable you to create the peace and space you need to start or develop a yoga practice and the main aim is to make yoga accessible and enjoyable for all and to have fun with it.
The class is welcoming and easy to follow so perfect for beginners but is challenging to all levels. The style of teaching is friendly and relaxed – demonstrating postures and giving verbal and physical adjustments, where appropriate, to ensure alignment to create foundation or develop your practice.
You cannot always control what’s goes on the outside but through yoga you can regain control on the inside, enabling you to step towards physical and emotional wellbeing.
