Ashtanga and Alena Ashtanga yoga is an ancient Indian science of the mind. It is an ancient system of self realisation and is a powerful and effective means of discovering truth and attaining freedom. Through the practice of the Eight Limbs of Yoga described in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, we are able to “suspend the fluctuations of the mind” and find sustainable inner peace and stillness. Ashtanga yoga integrates the practices of postures, breathing techniques, lifestyle choices, and mental exercises to bring the mind under control and enable a life of peace and happiness. Alena has spent the last decade of her life dedicated to methods of transformation, healing and empowerment. As a passionate practitioner of yoga and an intuitive healer, Alena brings the wealth of all her experiences and knowledge to her teachings. Alena discovered Patanjali’s eight-limbed Ashtanga system of yoga nine years ago and has since travelled extensively to teach and study with many renowned teachers around the world. Alena’s teaching style is personal, dynamic and fluid with attention to detail, awareness of alignment and accurate adjustments. Her teaching is reflective of both the power and grace of the Ashtanga yoga practice. She works with students on the physical, mental and energetic levels to help them safely transcend preconceived limitations, to unfold and discover their own capability and potential, and to guide them to transform their lives.
