Ashtanga Yoga Shala Provence






Ashtanga Yoga is a dynamic style of yoga which was popularized by the late Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, a south Indian city.  It uses the vinyasa system (coordination of breath and movement) to form a flowing, moving yoga practice.  As a result, this creates internal heat which purifies and detoxifies the body and mind.

Ashtanga Yoga is a moving meditation.  It is a sequence which the student slowly memories and, in the process, builds strength, flexibility and stamina.  It brings peace to the mind and balance to the emotions.

There are 2 forms of traditional Ashtanga classes – Mysore and Led Sanskrit classes.

A Mysore style class is a private class in a group setting.  Each student works at their particular level (physically and energetically) while the teacher moves around the room offering guidance and physical adjustments to students when they need them.  It is possible to have students of all levels in this class and students can practice in a gentle soft manner or in a strong intense fashion – depending on their individual needs of the day.  The room is quiet, and this allows for students to connect with their breath and their inner worlds.  In a Mysore class, it is not important for students to start and finish at the same time. 

A led Sanskrit class is a one where all students practice at the same time.  The teacher counts every vinyasa and breath.  It is a strong, energizing class.


Qu'est ce que c'est le Yoga Iyengar?

B.K.S Iyengar (1918 - 2014) a développé une approche progressive de la pratique des asanas (poses) et de pranayama (exercises de respiration), en se servant des supports afin d'aider le pratiquant à sentir la posture et de l'adapter à leurs besoins, soit pour un débutant mais également pour un pratiquant avancé. Il est donc accessible pour tout age et pour type de corps. L'approche Iyengar est généralement connu pour ses instructions précises ainsi que la tenue d'une posture pour une certain durée de temps.  B.K.S Iyengar était parmi les étudiants de T. Krishnamacharya, connu comme 'le père de yoga posturale moderne'. Parmi les autres étudiants étaient des personnes de renom tels que Pattabhi Jois, Indra Devi, T.K.V. Desikachar et A.G Mohan, qui ont tous contribuées au yoga que nous pratiquons aujourd'hui.


Kirtan is the call and response singing of ancient Sanskrit names of the Gods and Goddesses. 

It is the path of Bhakti (devotional) yoga and awakens deeply buried emotions and thoughts by channeling them through voice and song.

As you sing, you soften and purify your heart space and you begin to experience the healing power of these melodies and sacred mantras.
