Definition – What does Ashtanga Yoga mean?

Ashtanga yoga, sometimes referred to as Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga, is a style of yoga that was developed by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and T. Krishnamacharya in the 20th century. They claimed it originated from a system of Hatha yoga described in the ancient text, the “Yoga Korunta.” Used in this context, the term, Ashtanga yoga, refers to this particular style of yoga.

Ashtanga yoga is a dynamic, flowing style that connects the movement of the body with the breath. The method stresses the importance of daily practice of a set series of movements. There are six series of Ashtanga yoga sequences, which the student progresses through at their own pace.

COREYO

COREYO – Do you know which abs are the most important for core strength and stability?

Reach deep into the full core. Our core is not just that search for the six pack in the front of the belly. In our CoreYo practice we’ll work on the core related to the belly itself but also on the core related to standing balance and arm balances and just pure strength. We’ll learn a little anatomy along the way.

“By adding CoreYo class to my running training, I’ve been able to set the clock back at least 5 years! I set new personal best times for the half marathon and 10k!  Having a stronger core means better form so I’ve been injury free as well.  Thanks Lynda!”   – Bob S

From the doctor on Back Pain.
Doctors now realize that lying around is actually counterproductive, leading to a decrease in conditioning and an increase in pain. The longer you stay in bed the more muscle mass you lose (up to 3 percent per day) and the resulting loss of strength can interfere with your rehabilitation, and force you to overwork other muscles to compensate. Rather than babying a back injury, doctors now recommend people start gentle activities the first day.

Vinyasa II+

Vinyasa II-III

This practice will leave you energized and with a sense of well being to begin your day.

Each practice begins with awareness of our breath, creating a connection to fuel the focus of the mind and to fuel the power and flexibility of the body. Many athletes do not use the full capacity of their breath and thus limit their performance.

Emphasis is on safe alignment for building strength to develop core, legs, arm, shoulder, and back strength. These elements help prevent injuries and balance the front and back of muscle groups.

Learn to bring your practice from your center, that place of comfort and stability.

Modifications are provided during the work phase of our practice to allow students to move to their personal depth and edge of practice with a focus on anatomy and alignment. Level II-III postures explored depending on the experience of yogis attending.

Olivia B  recommends Yogachelan – Facebook

I live in Redmond, WA and plan my family vacations around Yogachelan’s class schedule (seriously). I discovered this studio two years ago and it has been transformative. Lynda’s guidance has allowed my body to move in new and different ways, opened up areas I didn’t realize were closed, and deepend my yoga practice in ways that are difficult to describe. The classes are challenging yet even a new practitioner will feel supported and guided through each pose. The icing on the cake is the joy that oozes from the studio – it is both contagious and inspiring! I cannot wait to return.

By: Nathan Moller from Living Well Family Chiropractic

I have met many of the other instructors who have been trained by Lynda and have been so impressed! Thanks for providing quality yoga instruction and just a wonderful place to be!”
