Astanga Vinyasa Yoga

By Beth Shaw

Astanga, or at times spelled ashtanga Yoga exercise is in fact taught today by a person called Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, inside Mysore, India. He has brought astanga yoga exercise to the western world around 25 years in the past and still teaches today at 91 years of age. Astanga yoga exercise started out with the actual rediscovery of the ancient manuscript Yoga Korunta.

It describes a distinctive method of Hatha yoga as used and created by the ancient sage Vamana Rishi. It’s believed to be the original asana practiced intended by Patanjali.

The Yoga Korunta focuses on vinyasa, or breathing-coordinated movement, where one does a pose with specific inhalation patterns related to it. This inhalation technique is known as ujayyi pranayama, or the victorious breath, and it is a process that produces extreme internal heat and a plentiful perspiration that purifies as well as detoxes the muscles and internal organs. This releases advantageous human hormones and nutrients, and is generally massaged back into your body. The breath guarantees efficient blood flow. The end result is improved blood circulation, a lightweight and powerful body along with a calm mind.

There is a suitable series to stick to when doing Astanga yoga. One has to move on from one series of poses to move on to the next. The Primary Series (Yoga Chikitsa) detoxes and aligns your body, cleaning it so that toxins do not block. The Intermediate Series (Nadi Shodhana) purifies the central nervous system by opening and clearing the power channels, allowing energy to move through effortlessly. The Advanced Series A, B, C, and D (Sthira Bhaga) incorporate the grace and endurance in the exercise, which usually calls for intense versatility.

It is best to look for a trained and educated instructor to assist you through this training. It’s an extreme exercise that is demanding, six days per week. You are sure to find inner peace and fulfillment with each breath you take.
