How Ashtanga Yoga Works?

Ashtanga Yoga is a prescribed principle based on 3 powerful principles (tristhana) – synchronised breathing (Ujjayi),  gaze points (Drishti), internal energy locks (Bandhamovement system (Vinyasa);. The postures (asana) are linked through Vinyasa, with steady deep resonant Ujjayi breathing and gaze to a certain point. This method completely absorbs our attention and effortlessly guides Prana (vital energy) to rejuvenate the nervous system and chakra (energy centres) of the body.

Also known as Yoga Therapy, Ashtanga Yoga primary series (Yoga Chikitsa) generates tremendous heat in the body that detoxify the blood by sweating and systematic asana sequence. Gradually the body and mind purify, grow stronger and become more open. Incredible focus develops that quiets the mind, resulting in a feeling of deep calmness and peace that grow more with your practice.  

Parampara - Lineage of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga

Ashtanga Yoga is a traditional method that is passed through the teacher to student. The father of modern Yoga Shri T. Krishnamacharya learned from his master in the Himalayas and from an ancient text Yoga Korunta. He rejuvenated this higher method of physical yoga and taught to his disciple Shri K. Pattabhi Jois and several others yogis. Shri Sarath Jois is currently holding the lineage and teaching in Mysore, India. Ashtanga Yoga became popular among sanskrit scholars and yoga students who studied in Mysore and learnt it at Sanskrit Collage in Mysore and at Pattabhi Jois Yoga Shala. These Indian yogis and scholar propagate Ashtanga Yoga in India with their knowledge and widely acknowledged as Vinyasa Karma Yoga (Syncronised Counting Yoga System). Slowly Ashtanga Yoga reaches the western world in 1970s with American and European students. Now, Ashtanga Yoga is the most popular form of Yoga system that is practiced world-wide.
