An Introduction to Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga - Assisted Self Practice

The day is for those new to Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga or those who are interested in learning about Assisted Self practice and the traditional Sanskrit Vinyasa Count.

About the Tutor, DEENA DAVIS

...a BWY Diploma Course tutor, a BWY Foundation Course Tutor and is currently running a BWY Diploma Course Tutor. She is a 500 hour John Scott and Lucy Crawford Ashtanga Vinyasa Teacher and has been teaching yoga since 2003.

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga (counted method) is a dynamic form of hatha yoga

Each movement of our body is linked with our breath. So we move in tune with our breath. Each body/breath movement is called a Vinyasa. Our mind is encouraged to be in the present by counting the vinyasa as we move. So that the practice become a moving meditation or mindfulness in action – moment to moment awareness.

Ashtanga means 8 Limbs – referring to the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali – an eightfold path to Self realisation.

Through the practice of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga we bring focus and calm the mind and at the same time cleanse, purify, strengthen and stretch the body.

When we practice regularly with mindfulness and compassion a deeper experience of the self becomes possible.

What is Assisted Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga

In an assisted Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga class we individually practice within a group setting. We come to class and go through the Asthanga vinyasa sequence to where we have been taught. Postures are added to our sequence as our bodies become stronger and more flexible. So that we move through the sequence at our own pace and to where our body is right now.  It can be like having a one-to-one within a group setting.

The day is a combination of practical and theory.  Learning the opening and closing chants as well as the Sanskrit count and be able to practice with the count.
