Anyone who has tried Ashtanga yoga can tell you that it's a mentally AND physically challenging style of asana practice. But far from being just a physical workout, Ashtanga yoga can be meditative and peaceful in a beautiful way.
Watch yoga teacher Aline Fernandez as she moves through this powerful Ashtanga flow, showing us how yoga can teach you to build and balance strength, focus, and grace in both mind and body. Aptly titled "The Practice," the video shows that yoga is not about how you look or how old you are, it's always about you and your practice.
So if you're in need of some yoga inspiration, look no further—this powerful Ashtanga flow will remind you of the beauty of asana and how your practice is truly your own.
