Ashtanga Yoga is an ancient form of yoga which uses vinyasas, which link postures and breath to form dynamic sequences, creating a dynamic flow throughout the practice. Ashtanga is a sanskrit term, ashto means “eight”, while anga means “limb”. Each limb or stage in the eightfold path is a step along the path to self-realization. The eight limbs of Ashtanga Yoga are :-

YAMA – moral codes
NIYAMA – self-purification and study
ASANA – the practice of yoga postures
PRANAYAMA – breath control
PRATYAHARA – sense control
DHARANA – concentration
DHYANA – meditation
SAMADHI – contemplation, self-realization or a state of bliss

The Adelaide Ashtanga Yoga Shala teaches in the traditional methods as taught by Pattabhi Jois and offers both guided and mysore style classes. For more information on classes offered by the shala please view our class timetable at www.adelaideashtangayoga.com

WHAT IS A HOUSE CONCERT? House concerts are magical and intimate performances that create wonderful memories and a close connection between the musicians, host and audience. A House Concert is not a party – rather a House Concert is an event with a dedicated focus on the musical performances. Before and after the concert will be time to mingle and socialise. A house concert is a private event, exclusive to the hosts network. It is not a publicly advertised event. If you receive an invitation it means you are part of either the host’s or musician’s exclusive network.
