Ashtanga is the original power Hatha class: a very active moving meditation with many opportunities to both strengthen and energize the body. This Ashtanga Basics class introduces beginners to the primary series of this practice. Having the same sequence each time gives room for keeping the mind clear and focused, allowing students to observe how the body continues to change and evolve.

L'Ashtanga est l'origine du Power Hatha - une meditation en movement très dynamique avec plein d'occasions de renforcer et d'énergiser le corps. Ce cours d'Ashtanga est une introduction à la première série d'Ashtanga. En faisant la même séquence à chaque cours laisse les élèves une opportunité de voir le changement dans leur pratique.
