In Sanskrit "Ashta + anga" is Ashtanga. "Ashta" means Eight and "Anga" is limbs so it means Eight Limb path, ashtanga yoga is based on Yoga Philosophy of Patanjali. The asanas, Pranayama’s or the dharana which we have studied earlier or the yam and niyam are based on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Hence, we will acquaint ourselves with the fundamentals as stated by Patanjali first.

Yoga has its roots about 5000 years BC as described in Vedic Philosophy and Tantras. Patanjali, great sage composed this path into a Darshan (Philosophy) in his Book Patanjali Yoga Sutra. In which he has formulated Yoga as a Eight Limbs or Eight Fold path. The Ashtanga series is said to have its origin in an ancient version called the Yoga Korunta, accumulated by Vamana Rishi, which Krishnamacharya, is the father of modern yoga received from his Guru Rama Mohan Brahmachari at Mount Kailash in the early 20th century.

The origins of yoga itself are incomprehensible and likely as being somewhere 8,000 years ago and at that time, yoga was practiced in a less small no. of yogis group, who lived in caves and forests, far away from society.

The popular system of Ashtanga Yoga that is widely practiced today, traces its more recent origins back to Sri K.PattabhiJois. He became a student of Sri T.Krishnamacharya in 1927 at the age of 12. Over the next twenty-five years, he learned and mastered the practices passed on to him by his Guru and in turn, passed them onto his students. Daily or regular practice is highly emphasized in Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, each student moves through the practice at his or her own pace and level. An individual with an established Ashtanga practice might take time between an hour or two hours, depending upon own personal speed, but a beginner will likely have a shorter practice.

Ashtanga Yoga techniques are designed to offer you a deeper sense of realization and practice. You will be practicing yoga under the direct guidance of Teacher, who is a certified and experienced. You can not only learn various yoga postures, ashtanga yoga movements and breathing synchronization, but can also practice them with deeper understanding of kriya and pranayama for an effective teaching and knowledge sharing.
