  • The health benefits of Yoga have been brought prominently to public attention during recent years offering both physical and mental well-being.
    Ashtanga Yoga which means “eight-limbed yoga,” is the Patanjali’s Yoga. There are six series of postures in the Ashtanga Yoga Asana method. As well as breath regulation, control of the senses, meditation and the full libration of the mind, body and spirit.

  • 10 things you need to know about Ashtanga Yoga:

  • 1. Mind–Body–Spirit Connection

  • Requirement of Five even inhalations and exhalations for every posture in a particular way known as “Ujjay“ breathing which means Victorious in Sanskrit. This will keep the practitioner in close contact with the breath synchronised with the movements of the body known as Vinyasa. Each inhale and exhale are three seconds in length and are performed in a three dimensional way. This will have a power to transform you inside and out.  It will help you get the feel for each posture and allows you to gain a deeper understanding of the connection of the breath between the mind and the body.

  • 2. Disciplined

  • Ashtanga Yoga demand the practitioner to show up on the Yoga mat on a regular basis in order to obtain mastery over the practice. This will teach the practitioner to be discipline and sincere which are great skills that can be applied in all aspects of life.

  • 3. Physical Strength & Stamina

  • Even though the postures are physically demanding, however, the practice is available for anyone who is willing to change in a holistic manner regardless of their physical boundaries and limitations. With regular practice you will gain tremendous amounts of strength and flexibilities and you will be amazed to see what your body is capable of doing.

  • 4. Mind Concentration

  • In the Ashtanga yoga system we have nine points known as “Drishti“ to fix your gaze upon them during the practice. This will help to prevent the mind from wondering off and keeps it in the present moment.


  • 5. Detoxing 

  • Ashtanga practice creates an internal body heat known as “Agni“ which means fire or to burn in sanskrit. This internal fire will start to burn the inner toxins and impurities in the body and flushes out through the skin in the form of sweating.


  • 6. Repetitive & Choreographed

  • We have a set numbers of postures in each series that are not been changed for more than 2500 years. Therefore, by repeating the postures not only prevents the mind from been confused by different postures given in other style of Yoga but also you can monitor your progress and develop your own personal practice


  • 7. Balanced Practice

  • Ashtanga sequences consists of series of postures knwon as “Asana“ that offers a perfect balance of sun salutations – standing and seated postures – forward bends and twists – hip openers and arm balances – back bends inversions – heart and shoulder opening. The Asana works the entire body and it will bring health and vitalities to the practitioner. Beyond the Asana we have other practices such as Pranayama that will regulate the breath and brings balance between the two forces known as “Prana & Apana“ which will lead a spiritual awakening.


  • 8. Inner Journey

  • Ashtanga yoga has the power to guide you inwards and connecting you with your inner spirit. It gives us inner strength to apply “Tapas“ which is austerity in Sanskrit in order to control our senses   known as “Pratyahara“. It will librate human spirit from worldly attachments and conditioning.


  • 9. Meditative

  • The performance of the Yoga Asana will turn into a moving meditation when we continuously focusing on the Ujjay breath and the energetic locks known as “Bandha“ as well the “Drishti“. Because this will keep the mind in the precent moment which a powerful form of meditation “being in the NOW“


  • 10. Life Style

  • Ashtanga is a life-long practice. No matter how advance you will become on the path there are always room for improvement. Through the regular practice our perception about ourselves and the way we see the world changes. We will become more aware of the environment, what we consume and how we present ourselves to the world. It offers a new way of living that is balanced and healthy that is good for oneself and for others.
