It's great you're a trainer...my goal is to teach Yoga, with a particular interest
in persons, like myself, who are over 50.
Ashtanga Yoga is the foundational yoga from which Power and Flow yoga are usually derived and which emphasizes focus on breath. There are 4 Series of poses that are always done in the same order. Each series begins with the Sun Salutations (A&B) then proceeds to Standing Postures. The series of seated postures are what varies and are all connected by the "vinyasa" (lower pushup and jump or walk through). The finishing postures consist of backbends, shouldstand and headstand/handstands with the corpse pose at the end. The series are progressive, as in you must master certain postures before you can move on to the next.
It works for me because I like physical challenges and I love routine! It also works for me because it's connected to a larger spiritual practice. It's amazing because it is an intense, sweaty and all over workout: strength training + aerobic + flexibility.
