Ashtanga Yoga is a practice and philosophy that aims at humanity’s physical, psychological and spiritual health and development. It is not bound to any religion, political lineage, or other association, though it does have its own definition of God’s appearance. It is a style of yoga codified and popularized by K. PattabhuJois during the 20th century, which is often promoted as a modern-day form of Classical Indian Yoga. Ashtanga means eight limbs or branches, of which asana or physical yoga posture is merely one branch, while breath or pranayama is another. Both PattabhiJois and SharathJois encourage practice of Ashtanga Yoga – all eight limbs. The first two limbs – Yamas and Niyamas – are given special emphasis to be practiced in conjunction with the third and fourth limbs (asana and pranayama).

Introductions and history:

  • “Astanga yoga series ” (originally there were six sequences of postures) and PattabhiJois, with the encouragement of Krishnamacharya, took the instructions as the basis of his practice and teaching. Ashtanga taught by PattabhiJois is a form of Hatha yoga which focuses on asana (postures) and pranayama (breath control).
  • The elements of Ashtanga yoga: Vinyasa (breath-synchronised motion), Ujjayi Pranayama (victorious breathing), bandhas (inner locks), dristis (gaze points).
  • Primary series: Sun salutation A and sun salutation B, standing series, seated series, finishing sequence; Jump backs and jump through, drop backs.

Practice techniques:

Practicing relaxation techniques such as yoga can help you achieve the relaxation response, a state of deep calmness that counteracts the negative effects of stress. When practiced regularly, these activities can lead to a reduction in everyday stress levels, anxiety, and muscle tension as well as an improvement in mood, energy, and focus.
