Ashtanga yoga is an invigorating practice that involves synchronizing the breath with a series of postures - a process producing intense internal heat, and purifying sweat, that detoxifies muscles and organs. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind. You will develop increased stamina, strength and endurance.
