Ashtanga yoga is a system of yoga transmitted to the modern world by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009). This method of yoga involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of postures—a process producing intense internal heat and a profuse, purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind.

Intended to be a daily practice this powerful, healing practice is a specific sequence of postures (asanas) linking breath (pranayama) and movement (vinyasa.) Ashtanga is an athletic flow combining strength, flexibility and stamina for a complete practice.

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is different from many yoga classes in the West in that the order of asanas is completely predefined. A practice will comprise four main parts: an “opening sequence,” one of the six main “series”, a back-bending sequence, and a set of inverted asanas, referred to as the “finishing sequence.”

Pilates is a method of exercises that seeks to integrate all movement to initiate from the core. These movements allow us to utilize the entire body as a unified structure. Pilates classes typically take a fitness perspective of maximizing core and muscular activation, often with exaggerated breath.
In Therapeutic Pilates, we adopt a more functional approach to core and movement. In functional movement, we use only the bodily resources necessary to facilitate what one is trying to physically accomplish. Breath and movement become slower and more deliberate; we find ease within the effort. Props are used for support rather than to intensify the exercise.
Therapeutic Pilates is designed to bring you back to neutral postural alignment and can be used for rehabilitating injury or for injury prevention. Finishing with stretches and trigger point release, this practice is restorative for your body and nervous system, leaving you energized yet calm.
