Special attention is given to the control of the breath in Ashtanga Yoga. In Ashtanga Yoga, the so-called Ujjayi breathing is used. You can apply this in the complete asana praxis, which gives you more energy and better breathability.

Through the Ujjayi breathing, you create noise through the targeted narrowing of the vocal spines during inhalation and exhalation. Through this constriction, you create a resistor that produces the typical Ujjayi noise. Breathing thus serves as an orientation point in practice.


Vinyasa describes the synchronization of movement (asana) and breath. Ashtanga Yoga is a Vinyasa system, where you can exercise every movement in the respiratory rhythm. So do not make any movement that you can not connect with the breath.


Bandha describes subtle muscle contractions in certain areas of the body during yoga praxis. One differentiates Uddiyana, Mula, and Jalandara Bandha. Bandha can be translated with tape. This band passes through the body. By specifically activating the muscles involved, you will focus your body on and off, stabilize and protect your body, generate warmth, and focus your mind.


Drishti means a point of view. In Ashtanga yoga, you can perform any movement with a fixed viewpoint. This focus will help you focus attention from the outside, thus restoring your mind.
