The focus is on synchronization of breath with continuous flow of movement and supported or strengthened by the bandhas. A vigorous practice that builds heat, endurance, flexibility, strength and mental focus. Empower yourself and gain mental clarity while enhancing core strength and flexibility.

MODIFIED PRIMARY SERIES (MPS) – ASHTANGA VINYASA YOGA

The Modified Primary Series is based on the Full Primary Series designed by Sri K.Pattabhi Jois and made accessible to all. The class begins with sun salutations, standing poses and balancing asanas, and finishes with seated forward-folds, twists, backbends and inversions. The primary focus is physical cleansing, synchronization of breath and movement. This class is open to practitioners of all levels and offers easy to learn modifications depending on the level of the individual.
