CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Ashtanga Fundamentals: All Levels

The elements of vinyasa, synchronizing breath with movement. We will begin with Surya namaskara (sun salutations), standing postures and some seated postures. The instructor will also offer ideas on preparing for and building skills in some of the more challenging ashtanga poses. The class will conclude with the traditional backbends and finishing sequence of postures, leading to a relaxed state of rest.

Ashtanga Half Primary Series: Beginner/Intermediate

This class focuses on the fundamentals of Ashtanga yoga: breathing techniques, bhandas (muscle locks), sun salutations, standing postures, introduction to the seated postures, and finishing postures, following in sequence, the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga.

Ashtanga Improv: All Levels

Class begins with the traditional sun salutations and standing sequence postures of ashtanga, followed up in an improvisational style covering a sampling of first, second, or third series postures. The instructor will also offer ideas on preparing for and building skill in some of the more challenging ashtanga poses. The class will conclude with the traditional backbends and finishing sequence of postures, leading to a relaxed state of rest.

*This is an intermediate - advanced level dynamic flow.

Ashtanga Primary Series: Intermediate/Advanced

This class teaches the full primary series but variations to difficult postures will be offered so that everyone can join in.

Ashtanga Vinyasa: Beginner

Inspired by the the Ashtanga vinyasa system, this fast paced class synchronizes breath with movement.

Intro to Second Series: Intermediate - Advanced

Exploration of second series, which includes researching of the more challenging poses Students should be familiar and comfortable with Ashtanga Primary series.

As a contrast/compliment to primary series, which is mainly forward bending poses, second series consists of backbending, twisting, hip-opening and strength postures. In Sanskrit this series is called Nadi Shodana, which means “Nerve Cleansing,” and relates to the energetic purification of the nervous system. It is said to purify the subtle energy channels, or nadis, allowing the prana to flow freely throughout the body.

Restorative Yoga

This class is designed to relieve stress and help release deeply held tensions from the body and mind. We use props to support the postures, while gently stretching and strengthening the body. This class is appropriate for students of all levels.

 

class Etiquette

 
Yoga Shala of San Antonio welcomes you. We strive to make every experience a good one and care deeply for our students. Please understand and respect the student-teacher relationship and follow any request from your teacher.

Please respect and follow the traditional Ashtanga method as taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and Yoga Shala of San Antonio. Please do not add, skip or in other ways deviate from the traditional Ashtanga sequence of yoga asanas unless acknowledged or requested by your teacher. If you do not know the sequence or if following the traditional method is not possible for you, either talk to your teacher or request guidance.

Please stay on your own mat and refrain from assisting other practitioners.

Please do not take any new asanas unless agreed upon with your teacher.

Please leave all of your personal items in the storage spaces available outside the room. This includes: shoes, cell phones, bags, and other personal items. 

Please respect the tranquil environment we provide and silence all technology and leave outside the room.

Please leave waters outside the room. In Ashtanga yoga, we use ujjayi breath to create an internal heat during our practice and by drinking water during practice it prevents that heat and puts the internal fire out. 

Respect your limits. Acknowledge that your body and mind will feel different every day; listen to what your body tells you and practice in your own time following your own breath.

Practice with care and consideration towards yourself and others.

Please refrain from unnecessary talking. Each person in a class has their own experience and questions will arise, however please respect everyone by refraining during class. We would love to discuss any questions you have after the class is over.

Refrain from eating at least 2 hours prior to your practice. Drink plenty of water after your practice.

Personal hygiene is an integral part of practicing yoga. Please ensure that you and your gear are clean.

If you feel emotionally upset during or after a yoga session (joy, sadness, irritation,etc.) then accept the feelings and bid them welcome. If this feels difficult, you are welcome to speak to your teacher about it after class.

Do not underestimate the effect of Ashtanga yoga. It is a very effective self-therapy for personal development – physically, mentally and spiritually. Consider a balanced practice integrating both activation and release, engagement and softening, as the means to your progress.
