Ashtanga yoga is a set sequence of yoga poses that is strung together with a focus on deep breath work. It works with both strength and flexibility in equal measures but is accessible to all
The physical aspect of ashtanga yoga, which sets it apart from the other yoga styles, is that it is a predetermined sequence of asanas as taught by Sri K Pattabhi Jois.
This style of yoga is physically demanding as it involves synchronizing breathing (ujjayi) with a progressive and continuous series of postures -a process producing intense internal heat and works to balance strength and flexibility. The result is improved circulation, stamina, a light and strong body, and a calmer mind.
Eleanor started practicing Ashtanga yoga in 2009 and valued the sense of empowerment and calm that resulted from it so much that she decided to complete a teacher training course in India in 2011. For seven years Eleanor has been teaching full-time and has trained with some of the world’s most esteemed yoga teachers.
Based in Bristol as a full-time yoga teacher, with further training completed for Anatomy and Physiology, Sports & Remedial Massage and multiple Vipassana Meditation courses under her belt, Eleanor’s enthusiasm to delve deep into the body and mind always has people intrigued to learn more, whilst her sense of humour and verdant inquisitiveness will inspire.
