Ashtanga yoga is a set sequence of poses. The 1st series of poses is called the primary series. This method involves synchronising a specific breathing technique ( Ujiya breath) with the asanas ( yoga poses). This produces an intense internal heat and purifying sweat that detoxifies the muscles and organs.
When practiced regularly the result can be a lean, strong this body, improved circulation and a calm mind.
