What is Ashtanga Yoga?

After the classical Hatha yoga, Ashtanga yoga is the most ancient system of unification. Ashtanga yoga is the classical work of sage Vamana Rishi mentioned in Yoga Korunas based on the teachings of Vinyasa (Breath Linking Movement), Drishti (Focus), Bandhas ( Body Locks), Mudras ( Hand Gestures) and Philosophy (Yogic Values and Virtues of Patanjali Yoga Sutras). This yoga style is a derivative ‘eight-limbed path’ developed by Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois. Ashtanga yoga as outlined in Patanjali Yoga Sutra is both an external and internal practice aimed at purification for revealing the true self. The external practices discuss the Yamas (moral codes), Niyamas (self-observation and study), Asana (postures), Pranayama (breathwork) whereas the internal practices include Pratyahara (withdrawal of senses), Dharana (concentration), Dhyana (meditation) and Samadhi (salvation).

An ideal asana practice in Ashtanga yoga involves the use of Vinyasa and Tristhana. Vinyasa symbolizes a rhythmic linking of the breath with the body movements that make Ashtanga yoga a moving meditation for internal cleaning. And, Tristhana refers to three points of attention; Asana, Pranayama and Drishti. When the elements of Vinyasa and Tristhana are incorporated in the practice of Ashtanga yoga, the body becomes healthy, light and strong and you unfold the path to universal self.

With deep internal purification of the body, mind and soul through the Ashtanga yoga teacher training in Delhi, the human soul attains complete enlightenment of body and mind leading to a state of Samadhi -- where the union with the divine is achieved.

Sole Essence of Ashtanga Yoga:

  • A Robust Body Inside-Out: For each movement in the Ashtanga Yoga there is a Vinyasa. So, in this way, all the Ashtanga yoga postures have assigned Vinyasas. Coordinating movements with breath results in heating, cleaning and thinning of the blood that circulate more freely in the body. Enhanced blood circulation relieves toxins, diseases from internal organs and pain from the joints thus rewarding you with a healthy and robust body.
  • Awakening Spirituality: The practice of Ashtanga yoga series with attention to the Ujjayi breathing rebalances the body and expands the consciousness. With the equilibrium of body, mind and soul, the process of spiritual awakening starts in which divinity flows into the consciousness.
  • Channelizing Energy: The Ashtanga yoga series opens and clears up the energy channels allowing the free flow of prana that leads to mental and spiritual vitality, aimed at reaching the higher self. The purpose of channelizing the energy is directed towards the attainment of complete consciousness and grace.
  • Revealing True Nature: The asana practice dissolves the attachment to the false self and the element of Drishti enhances focus. This unleashes the feelings of delusion and allows the divine spark of the true nature to emerge from within.
  • Paving Way For Yogic Lifestyle: The dedicated practice of asanas lead to the emergence of first two limbs Yamas and Niyamas. With these two ethical principles you can pave the way of becoming a yogi both at the soul and body, each incomplete without the other.
  • Attainment of Samadhi: The ultimate purpose of Ashtanga yoga is the attainment of Samadhi wherein the Ashtangi dissipates into the divine and celestial only to become one with the universe. Samadhi symbolizes the ultimate step to liberation and one as an enlightened Ashtangi.
