Note of Thanks

I thank Sri K. Pattabhi Jois who has given us this practice and Sharath Jois for his teachings and support; and I give thanks for all the benefits which I have experienced through the practice. In their spirit I seek to pass on Ashtanga Yoga; contributing to advancing the good and progress.

Ashtanga Yoga

The word Ashtanga is Sanskrit and means eight limbed: astau (eight) and anga (limb), they are described by Patanjali in the ancient script Yoga Sutra.

We start the practice of Yoga with the third limb Asana (posture), which are connected in series linked together following the rhythm of the breath. All the limbs are equal important and interconnected. The Asana practice has in its traditional form two key elements – vinyasa and tristhana.

Vinyasa is the coordination of breath and movement meaning that every movement is done in synchrony with an inhalation or exhalation linking each Asana to each other.
Tristhana means three places of attention which are posture, breath and a gazing point.

Practicing Asana regularly with determination following this method will give strength, flexibility and stamina to the body, sense organs and mind.

For Consideration

There is an Indian proverb or axiom that says that
everyone is a house with four rooms,
a physical, a mental, an emotional, and a spiritual.
Most of us tend to live in one room most of the time but,
unless we go into every room every day,
even if only to keep it aired, we are not a complete person.
