DEBI IS TEACHING: Accessible Ashtanga Yoga: Wednesdays from 8:15 till 9:45 a.m.

This class is an accessible, slower-paced version of the Ashtanga primary series. The more difficult poses are modified or omitted and props are used so that beginner and intermediate students can safely focus on the key of each pose while challenging themselves. Debi gives options for each pose to suit different student.

Ashtanga yoga follows a specific sequence of postures linking every movement to a breath. One of the benefits of following the same sequence is the noticeable progress from repeated practice. Also, once students know what to expect, the practice may become a meditation, enabling them to better immerse themselves in the moment.
