Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is a beautiful sequential set of postures linked together with an emphasis on breath. The combining of movement & Ujjayi breath create heat in the body encouraging flexibility & detoxification through sweating. Ashtanga builds strength both physical & mental, leading the practitioner towards a greater feeling of confidence & clarity.
This style of yoga was introduced to the west by Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009). The sequences were taught to him by his teacher Shri T Krishnamacharya. The tradition continues with Pattabhi Jois' grandson Sharath.
Tiffany teaches workshops in NZ & Self Practice (Mysore Style) classes in Nelson, where both Ashtanga & Vinyasa Krama Sequences are supported. Each student is taught on an individual basis within a group context. This enables both beginners & experienced students to practice in the same class. The class environment is both focused & supportive of new comers.
