Ashtanga Online


Welcome to Yoga Bradford online! Here you will find a variety of classes that you can practice anytime, anywhere =) Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga is a branch of Hatha yoga and is a sequential system of postures linked together by breath and movement.  Progressive techniques of breath, posture (asana), gaze (drishti) and movement, cleanse, stretch and strengthen the body as well as focus and calm the mind.  The breath is the heart of this discipline, and links asana to asana in a precise order. By synchronising movement with breathing and practising Mula and Uddiyana Bandhas (locks), an intense internal heat is produced. This heat purifies muscles and organs, expelling unwanted toxins as well as releasing beneficial hormones. Awareness is essential to asana practice, which aims to influence, integrate and harmonise all levels of being: physical, energy, mental, emotional, psychic and spiritual.  Awareness in this context is noting sensations in the body, the physical movement, the posture, the breath, synchronisation of movement, concentrating on a particular area of the body and witnessing and accepting any thoughts or feelings that may arise during the practice.  A deeper experience of the self becomes possible through consistent practise as we gain control of the senses and acquire steadiness of body and mind.

Yoga changed my life, which is why I love to share my experience to pass the gift on.  As such, these online classes are free to use as many times and as often as you like.  I am forever a yoga student; I am keen to continue to develop my yoga knowledge and incorporate this into my teaching. As such. if you have the means and should you wish to make a donation (pay as you feel) then all donations are humbly and gratefully received.  Your kind generosity will support me to continue to share yoga with you and to keep the classes (and your practice!) fresh.

Peace, love and light, Angela x
