New to Astanga?

Astanga Vinyasa Yoga is a powerful practice developed in Mysore, India, by the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. The system begins with postures (asanas) linked with breath and movement (vinyasa). We start with sun salutes, flow through standing and seated postures, and finish with restorative poses. At the heart of this practice is a smooth breath, tied to internal locks (bandhas) and steady gazing (drishti).
