This type of yoga is typically practiced in a fast-paced and flowing style, with the emphasis on coordination between movement and breath. Ashtanga yoga is often considered to be a more advanced form of yoga, and it can provide numerous physical and mental benefits, such as increased strength, flexibility, and concentration.
