Ashtanga Yoga Asana Foundations with Clayton Horton

31 December 2024

About this Online Event

Asanas (postures) are the foundation of the practice. It is the starting point of combining the breath, movement and attention. Health, vitality and immunity are developed as the practice deepens. As commitment, humility and devotion increases, you will be able to develop your own personal practice.


In this Masterclass Series, Clayton provides clear and simple ways for students of all levels to enjoy their practice.


Class 1: Intention, Grounding, Sun Salutations

his is the starting point for the practice. Coming to the top of our mat, with the opening mantra explained, we combine movement, breath and a focused gaze (drishti) with the classic Salutation to the Sun, Surya Namascar.


Class 2: Standing Poses

The standing poses allow for strength and flexibility in the legs, hips and torso.


Class 3: Seated Poses

In this class, we will give a detailed description of the first half of the Ashtanga Primary series. Suggestions of modifications will be provided for challenging poses.


Class 4: Backbending and Finishing Poses

Backbending helps to tone and strengthen the spinal cord and nervous system. As we slow down towards the end of the practice, the finishing postures bring equanimity to the muscular, nervous and hormonal system.
