Ashtanga's full name is Ashtanga Vinyasa, vinyasa meaning synchronising movement with breath. So we can think of the ashtanga sequence as a flow of movement with breath and the postures are in fact just pauses within the flow. We move through 4x sun salutation A and 2 x sun salutation B and then flow through all the standing postures and a half-primary series, completing the practise with all the finishing postures and a nourishing savasana. We honour the transitions between postures and observe our movements to ensure we move with ease and efficiency so that no energy is unnecessarily expended, always saving some energy for ourselves x
