This class is the traditional Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga as taught by Sri K Pattabhi Jois. He called Ashtanga Yoga a "hatha Yoga breathing system" and it is a sequence with a strong focus on forward bending postures meant to prepare and strengthen the body and develop the profound breathing practice known as Ujayyi pranayama. Ashtanga yoga is known for its emphasis on three main aspects: the breath, Drishtis- focused gazing points, and the bandhas which are internal energetic "locks" used to contain and direct energy within the body. The pace of this class is brisk to create heat in the body. Modifications for some poses will be taught as needed to help avoid injury in the practice. This class is suitable for those students already familiar with Ashtanga yoga as well as those in good physical shape with a sense of curiosity about the practice.
Class time devoted to lecture: Less than 5 minutes
