Ashtanga Yoga Lewiston was started by a small group of people with the common goal of sharing and practicing ashtanga yoga. Our boutique studio is located in downtown Lewiston on the second floor of Morgan’s Alley. We offer small classes where people receive individualized, personal instruction designed to build a lifelong yoga practice.
Ashtanga Yoga is a form of yoga developed by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009) in Mysore, India. This system of vinyasa yoga involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of postures. The process creates an internal heat and purification of the body through sweat, builds energy, and on another level, develops a single pointed focus of the mind. Temperatures are typically around 82 degrees F. Ashtanga embodies the eight limbs of yoga with the aim of uniting body, mind and spirit. This system may be a physically demanding practice, but can be modified for all ages and abilities and anyone is welcome, regardless of level.
