Ashtanga Basics

Ashtanga Basics This class will serve as an informative starting point for students new to Ashtanga

This class will serve as an informative starting point for students new to Ashtanga as well as providing more in depth alignment and breathing knowledge than your average led class. Students will gain the confidence to flow through most of the Primary Series with plenty of time to stop and break down the asanas for maximum benefit and safety.

This class is especially appealing to students who like routine! The Ashtanga sequence is always the same, so you have the chance to really see your 'improvement' from week to week. This class is an excellent compliment to any Vinyasa based class as you will learn the basic asanas taught in most Flow classes and feel comfortable moving to your ujjayi breath.

At fourteen Eleanor started to makes the shapes she had read about in Yoga for Teens by Thia Luby. A keen interest in yoga asanas and what benefits they can offer was sparked. Since then Eleanor has studied under the guidance of many teachers and  completed numerous teacher trainings. From Ashtanga to Sivananda, Power Flow  to Hot Yoga, Gentle Hatha to Yoga Nidra, the individual students and their specific needs is what shapes each class. More than anything Eleanor teaches you to come back to yourself, that what you need is already within you and that practising yoga asanas is one way of helping you get there.
