Ashtanga Yoga, one of the most ancient systems of Yoga, after Hatha Yoga is a phenomenal manifestation of Vanama Rishi’s records and teachings on Vinyasa (Linking Breath Movement), Dhristhi (Gaze or point of focus), Bandhas (Locks), Mudras (Gestures), and Philosophy (the Yogic Way of Life as interpreted in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali) as depicted in the great yogic text by Vanama Rishi, ‘Yoga Korunta’. The Yoga style is a derivative ‘eight-limbed path’ aimed at complete internal purification for unfolding the celestial projection of an entity (unfolding the true Universal Self). Ashtanga Yoga is both an external and internal practice wherein the external practices discuss the Yamas (moral codes), Niyamas (personal conduct), Asana (posture), Pranayama (breathwork), while the internal practices are Pratyahara (withdrawal of the senses), Dharana (Concentration), and Dhyana (Meditation).
An ideal Ashtanga Yoga practice is a perfect amalgamation of Vinyasa and Tirasthana (a union of the three point of action). Vinyasa symbolizes a rhythmic linking of the breath with the movement of the body and the mind, while the state of Tirasthana is a unification of the three points of attention; Asana (posture), Pranayama (breathing), and Dristhi (gaze). These when performed in accord with each other fulfill the purpose of purification of the entire body, its mind, and soul. This union is ‘Ashtanga Yoga’ – the route to a revelation of the true Universal Self.
When this deep internal and external purification process reaches its destination, complete mind control takes place which eliminates the venoms that tarnish the purity of a human soul and fall in the way of the complete realization of the Self. Ashtanga Yoga is the ultimate tool for the elimination of this obtrusion and clearing the Ashtangi’s path leading to the state of Samadhi (a still meditative state) for the attainment of utter and complete enlightenment of the body and mind.
