Led Primary Series
Led Primary Series is a dynamic and powerful type of vinyasa yoga practice.
Generally, we complete the full primary series in 75 minutes. This class is not appropriate for most beginners. For those looking for a more accessible practice, we highly recommend the Mysore class.
Each practice includes pranayama, meditation and/or a dharma talk. Students coming from other shalas are welcome! In our space, you’re welcome to move faster or slower, and every posture and transition is always optional. We ask that you do your best to radiate loving kindness and to be gracious in our space.
For those that aren’t familiar with Ashtanga, but have a strong background in the movement arts, you’ll likely be fine (if occasionally confused). Ashtanga’s a lot of fun. Its a set sequence of postures that are linked together through breath and movement. It begins with Surya Namaskara A and B, followed by standing postures, a seated sequence, and a closing sequence.
This class is designed to develop strength and flexibility, improve balance and coordination, and increase focus and concentration.
