Ashtanga vinyasa is a hatha yoga practice transmitted to Pattabhi Jois from the yoga master Krishnamacharya. It is for students seeking an invigorating approach that purifies, stimulates and energizes. It consists of postures practiced in a fluid rhythm with a concentrated breath, steady gaze, and internal contractions to direct vital energy. Due to the dynamic nature of this practice, one feels completely energized and purified in each cell of the body and also in the mind. More details
Student learns the basics of the asanas (postures) with an emphasis on three fundamental points:
- Bandha (energy locks)
- Ujjayi breathing
- Drishti (focal points)
Fernanda immersed herself into yoga by attending a 200h teacher training in 2015. During the training, she became interested in Ashtanga, at first due to its demanding physical aspect, but soon discovered that the practice offered much more. Patience, grounding, balance, compassion, connection are some of the qualities that the practice nurtured and continues to nurture in her. She went on to extended study with David Swenson, Bryan Kest, Jim Harrington and others. Yoga for her means connecting wholeheartedly with our physical and spiritual body, with other human beings, with nature, with whatever life offers. It is this yoke/union that she wishes to pass on in her classes. More details
