This refers to the system that was taught by Guru Sri. K Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India. Ashtanga translates as “eight-limbed” and refers to the eight limbs outlined by Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras. They include moral and ethical guidelines, postures, breathwork, sense withdrawal, concentration, and meditation. This style of yoga is a process and the postures are learned in a specific sequence coordinating breath with movement. Through following the sequence and utilising the tristhana elements of ujjayi breath, bandha and drishti, the body realigns and becomes strong. On a more subtle level, concentration and focus increase and this leads us into a meditative state.
