Ashtanga Vinyasa is a traditional style of Hatha Yoga popularized and redesigned by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009) in the lineage of Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya. It is derived from an ancient text called the Yoga Korunta, written by Vamanarishi, and schools the practitioner in Patanjali’s Eight Limbs of Yoga.
Philosophical ancient text is in fact very practical guideline and compendium of knowledge on how to become a better human being and lead life of spiritual growth based on ethical attitude and strengthen by the concept of non-attachment which is the cause of all suffering in your inner and outer world.
Daily asana self-practice is an integral part on this path and main tool to discover, feel and cultivate understanding of philosophy in your mind-body system. The main components of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga asana practice are breathing with sound (ujjayi breath), bandhas (internal locks) and drishti (gaze).
These three elements are known as Tristana. In Ashtanga, each breath is synchronized with movement called Vinyasa. Its purpose is cleansing; producing internal heat leading to profuse sweating and detoxiﬁcation of the organs and muscles.
Mysore / Led Practice was never just meant to be a place for a physical sequence of poses. It is the entire ritual that involves the practice of Tristana; Breath, Banda and Dristhi. Dedication to constant observation of Tristana opens up the whole new depth of your inner world, and allow you to feel inner peace and oneness.
Where honoring the intention in which you set the practice; making each movement, each breath and thought part of the sequence. This importance must be transmitted to students if they wish to allow yoga to happen in their practice.
They must start with the intention and this intention should come from a space of love, compassion, surrender and pure passion, not body, ego and asana oriented, which will lead to injury and fuel the wrong energy.
