This ancient Yoga method emphasises synchronization of the breath with a progressive series of asanas (postures). The breath unites the body with deeper levels of the mind.
By acquiring the ability to control a long deep breath, the mind becomes calm and concentrated, thoughts slow down and every movement flows gently and precisely from one asana (posture) into another. When breath and movement flow without effort and in perfect harmony, the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga practice transcends awareness (consciousness) and evolves into a meditation in movement.
