Ashtanga Primary Series

Women doing yoga

Intended to be a daily practice this powerful, healing practice is a specific sequence of postures (asanas) linking breath (pranayama) and movement (vinyasa.) Ashtanga is an athletic flow combining strength, flexibility and stamina for a complete practice.

Ashtanga is different in that the order of asanas is completely predefined, just as in Rocket Yoga. A practice will comprise four main parts: an “opening sequence,” one of the six main “series,” a back-bending sequence, and a set of inverted asanas, referred to as the “finishing sequence.”

Practice always ends with savasana.

We offer this class on Thursdays as practiced in The Rocket System to honor the tradition of Ashtanga.
