The eight limbs of the Ashtanga Yoga primary series—yamas, niyamas, asana, pranayama, pratyahara, Dharana, dhyana, and samadhi—are the highlight of this multi-style yoga course. K. Pattabhi Jois developed a set of asanas known as Ashtanga yoga that feature stronger and longer stretches, deep breathing exercises, and techniques for stress management.

You will also have the chance to learn about Yin and restorative yoga as part of our 100 Hour Yoga TTC, which will enhance your experience and knowledge of other yoga practices and traditions.
