Ashtanga yoga, is the yoga of 8 [ashta] limbs [anga], whose basis follows the scriptures of sage Pantanjali in ancient times. It is one of the few remaining authentic practices of yoga today that can be traced back to ancient scripture. The eight limbs consist of yama, niyama, asana, pranayama, pratyahara, dharana, dyana and samadhi. This can be translated into moral discipline, observances, postures, breath expansion, inward sensory withdrawal, concentration, meditation and state of ultimate bliss. The first 6 are actions that require our efforts and the last 2 are states that will ultimately follow with those efforts. Yama and niyama are life habits you cultivate on your own, asana and pranayama require a teacher, pratyahara and dharana will occur with some seasoned practice.

Ashtanga yoga is a form of Hatha yoga and its roots follow a direct lineage from Vamana Rishi in to Guru Rama Mohan Brahmachari who taught it to his student Sri T.

Sri T. Krishnamarcharya (1888-1989) who then passed it down to several students, one of which was known as Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009) or also affectionately referred to as Guruji.

The lineage is now upheld by Pattabhi Jois’ s grandson, R. Sharath Jois, whom runs and directs the Krishna Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute (KPJAYI), in Mysore, India, the main centre keeping the tradition of this lineage of Ashtanga yoga alive today. Please visit KPJAYI for more details.

The asana aspect of the Ashtanga practice consists of 3 main components: vinyasa, breath and drishti. Vinyasa is a pre-determined body movement within a designed sequence of postures that has an inhale or exhale prescribed to it. Hence breath is one of the main ingredients of the ashtanga trinity, and is to be done freely with sound. Drishti is your gaze, having your eyes rest softly at one point is also an important part of the asana practice. All of which you eventually sync together. The purpose of the asana practice is to purify, give strength and flexibility to the body and mind to minimise restrictions to healthy life and capability to sit in a calm manner.

From tradition, asana practice is taught to a student by building one posture upon another at a pace specific to the student. In this manner a student will eventually have the sequence committed to memory, and with a guidance of a teacher, will develop into the students own independent journey.
