Under the guidance of expert Ashtanga Yoga Teachers, Atri Yoga Center offers best Ashtanga Vinyasa Flow Classes in Rishikesh.
Ashtanga Vinaysa Flow yoga speaks about the eight limbs of the body and is a rigorous form. Gifted to the world by the Ashtanga guru, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, it involves a progressive series of positions merged with gaze and breathing practices. The form differs from other forms in the aspect that it is more dynamic, whereas most other forms are static in nature. The modern day form of traditional yoga, Ashtanga Vinayasa, is an integral part of the Yoga Teacher Training courses conducted by the Atri Yoga Center. The entire curriculum followed by the school is based on the rules laid down by Atri Yoga Center. Whether you take up 200 hours or 500 hour Yoga Teacher Training course, Ashatanga Vinayasa lays down the foundation for the most basic to more advanced asanas. We employ Certified Yoga Teachers and Ashtanga Gurus so that our students can receive required guidance and excel in their field. It is dedicated towards a more refined practice and aims at receiving heightened benefits in a short span of time. Bridging the gap between a strong mind and a healthy body, Ashtanga Vinyasa will bestow the practitioner with fitness, weight management, and enhanced mental state, as the program is not just about postures but also includes meditation and pranayama.
The level of the student is understood before teaching him/her the course they have enrolled under. While 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training course students are taken through series 1 of Ashtanga Vinaysa, students from 300 hour and 500 hour Yoga Teacher Training course are taught Series 2. Also, for students at higher levels, specific instructions are given to students so that they can identify the areas they needs strengthening and correct the wrong steps they may unknowingly follow.
Schedule of Ashtanga Vinaysa
Understanding that this is a more evolved form of yoga, greater emphasis is laid on this specific form. Every day we will focus on this form for around 2-2.5 hours under the guidance of certified Ashtanga Vinaysa Teachers and Gurus, with help from our staff. The spacious yoga halls of the school have all the necessary equipments required for performing the asanas. Equipment like Yoga blocks, Yoga belts, cushions and bolsters, also provide the aid required in the whole process of learning.
The school also conducts regular classes of Ashtanga Vinaysa Classes, every day from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. For the spiritual seekers who do not wish to take up a yoga teacher training course, we recommend attending Ashtanga classes on an everyday basis first. Know the art form and then indulge when satisfied.
