There are no fixed sequences of postures, creativity and variety is up to the teacher. Modifications for more challenging postures will be given. Please be sure to work at your own pace, and take breaks or sit out a pose whenever you feel the need.
An athletic and physically demanding form of yoga, an Ashtanga practice always follows very precise pose sequencing and pace with the use of a certain focused gaze (drishti).

The Ashtanga yoga class system is a traditional form that other styles of Vinyasa and and Power Yoga are derived from.
For many centuries Kundalini Yoga was a well kept secret known only to initiates and masters within the spiritual confines of one to one teaching and closed orders in India and Tibet. A Kundalini yoga class stimulates the nervous system, glandular system and the immune system as it centers the mind and opens the spirit. Benefits of Kundalini yoga classes include weight control, relief from stress and insomnia, enhanced creativity, lymphatic cleansing, liver detoxification, balancing the heart and mind, and developing will-power. These results are achieved through specific yoga posture sets. This style of yoga pays particular attention to breathwork, which aims to get energy moving quickly, but also involves classic poses, coordination of breath and movement, and meditation.
Yin yoga class is a powerful practice which targets tendons, ligaments and fascia within the body. Each posture during a Yin yoga class is held for long periods of time to encourage the slow and safe opening of connective tissues, leaving the yogi with an overall feeling of lightness, spaciousness and peace. A Yin yoga class is the perfect antidote to stress and a great counter balance to more active styles of yoga. Although Yin yoga is a more passive practice it can be quite challenging due to the length of time postures are held.
