MORE ABOUT ASHTANGA

THE POWER OF ASHTANGA YOGA

Ashtanga yoga is system of purification for the body, nervous system, and mind through the fire of sadhana (daily practice). The vinyasa method, linking breath and movement, heats the blood and purifies it by helping it circulate easily and separating out the impurities (like melting gold ore to purify it). With the heat of practice, the tristhana, or three points of attention, are used to purify the individual. Asana, or posture, strengthens the body and provides it with flexibility. Rechaka and puraka, or the inhale and exhale, when performed evenly and steadily, purifies the nervous system. Dristhi, or the point of gaze in asana, purifies and strengthens the mind through focus.

THE MYSORE INDEPENDENT PRACTICE

The Mysore style of yoga instruction welcomes anyone looking to deepen their practice in body and mind, from beginner to experienced yogi. Students new to the practice will receive more attention, but as one’s familiarity increases, independence increases as the need for assistance decreases. Students receive individual guidance and progress at their own pace, adding new postures as they are ready. Please expect your first practices to be short, but know you and the sequence will grow together.
Practice runs for three hours, but you are not required or expected to be there for the whole time. These flexible hours allow you to show up when it is right for you and stay just for the length of your practice.

ANDY AND ASHTANGA

Andy VanDeusen, RYT 200, was introduced to Ashtanga in January 2015 with Taylor Hunt, level II authorized instructor. He practiced independently and with Taylor for the year, then traveled to Mysore in 2016 to practice with Saraswathi Jois, the daughter of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, at the K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute. Following his trip to India, Andy visited several Ashtanga teachers and shalas throughout the United States, including The Yoga Workshop run by Richard Freeman in Boulder, CO and The Ashtanga Yoga Center run by Tim Miller in San Diego, CA, among others. Practicing with many different teachers has given him a broad view of how students learn and teachers teach, helping him to find what works well for you. Andy’s yoga practice, especially the ashtanga practice, has brought wonderful calm to his mind, cooling his competitive anger which he carried for many years. 

LED HALF-PRIMARY SERIES

Follow Andy through a led half primary series, the first part of the sequence taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. Led class helps establish proper vinyasa count in an individual’s practice. It also builds bodily and mindful strength through surrender to the teacher’s count and connection to traditional lineage. It is recommended to begin with the Mysore practice before coming to led classes, but all are welcome.
