Whether you are looking at yoga for Beginner' Yoga Class, or an experienced practitioner looking to Develop your Yoga Practice the main benefits of Ashtanga Yoga are mental, physical and emotional balance, which practitioners have experienced as follows:
Improved core strength
Ladies, banished bat wings
A sense of peace
Ashtanga Yoga is also perfect to help you detox your body and to help manage stress. This means that day-to-day actives, such as trimming the hedges, become easier because the body is more flexible so does not have to strain which means the mind is less stressed which makes the chore a little easier and perhaps even pleasurable!
Imbalance in life-style can create many of the problems people are living with on a day-by-day basis. These imbalances could manifest as: IBS, stress, headaches, feeling tired all the time, to name just a few.
And with more and more pressure being loaded on you from family, work, careers, financial concerns, etc, the basic principles of healthy living are often forgotten. This means your body’s vital organs accumulate more toxins therefore have to work harder to maintain homeostasis. So, it is essential to eliminate toxins and the build up of stress - whether from a physical, emotional, or mental perspective - and Ashtanga Yoga can help you achieve this and re-gain your balance.
Strength, stamina and sweat are the key features of this traditional yoga form which is why it is so powerful at achieving balance. It is the only form of yoga that uses synchronized movement with breath and ‘internal locks’ to create an intense heat. This intense heat purifies the muscles and organs to expel unwanted toxins as well as release beneficial hormones and minerals to nourish the body, so you’re buzzing, feel great yet relaxed.
