Welcome to Astanga Yoga Ottawa

Astanga Vinyasa Yoga is a powerful practice developed in Mysore, India, by the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois – affectionately called Guruji. The system begins with postures (asanas) linked with breath and movement (vinyasa). The first sequence is known as Primary, then Second and so on. Each sequence starts with sun salutes, then flows through standing and seated postures, finishing with restorative poses and relaxation. More about Astanga Yoga…
