What is Ashtanga Yoga?

Ashtanga yoga is the ancient yoga form which means “eight-limbs” of yoga. The eight limbs are Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana and Samadhi as per Sage Patanjali under the book yoga sutra. Later Ashtanga Yoga was popularized by K. PattabhiJois during the 20th century. Pattabhi Jois was also one of the first students of Krishnamacharya. Where he took the 3rd practice of Ashtanga yoga which is asana where he created a specific series of posture and rest of other need to be combined with it. This yoga form is dynamic, flowing style that connects the movement of the body with the breath.

Under the ashtanga yoga of pattabhijoisthere are majorly three series:

  • The Primary series: Yoga Chikitsa, Yoga for Health or Yoga Therapy
  • The Intermediate series: NadiShodhana, The Nerve Purifier (also called the Second series)
  • The Advanced series: SthiraBhaga, Centering of Strength

This 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh with Rishikesh Yoga Association will be more focused on primary series. It is a beginner program so it is so important for a beginner first to be focused on primary series in order to understand it.
