From the Ashtanga Vinyasa tradition, this form of yoga creates a dynamic class infusing the most powerful elements of a typical Vinyasa flow. There is a strong emphasis on core work, arm balances, and advanced standing balance postures. It is playful, challenging, and always takes you to the edge of your physical capacity. It is not meant for beginners.Not only can challenging yoga be great for the body, but it can also work wonders on the mind. There’s no greater feeling than finally being able to hold yourself up in the crane pose, or knowing that you’ve improved your flexibility enough to execute frog pose with your legs flat against the ground. There’s no question that you’re in the best shape of your life when you can remain in poses like these for an extended period of time. Perfecting these poses can take months or even years, but the challenge pays off in the end.Fundamental Movement by Annie Adamson
