What is Ashtanga Yoga?

Ashtanga Yoga is a powerful system of yoga practice designed to purify the body, nervous system and mind. One of the main distinguishing features of Ashtanga Yoga is that it links a set series of postures together in a flowing sequence that is synchronised with the breath.

The home of Ashtanga Yoga is Mysore, India, where it was taught for many years by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and now his grandson Sharath Jois at the Sri K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute. Pattabhi Jois, or Guruji as his students call him, began practicing and refining the Ashtanga system in 1927 with his teacher, the great Sri T. Krishnamacharya. He departed this world in May 2009 and the lineage holder is now Sharath Jois.

Ashtanga yoga translates as “eight-limbed yoga” (ashta=eight, anga=limb) and refers to the eight limbs outlined by Patanjali in the Yoga Sutra, which include moral and ethical guidelines, postures, breath work, sense withdrawal, concentration, and meditation. These eight steps basically act as guidelines on how to live a meaningful and purposeful life.

Ashtanga yoga teaches you to become a listener. You must listen to your body, to your breath and to your thoughts with a great deal of focus. Over time we gain a deeper understanding of ourselves, where we are in the moment, and what is needed to continue moving forward.
