200 Hour Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training Course in Rishikesh, India
Ashtanga Yoga is an ancient system of Yoga that was taught by Vamana Rishi in the Yoga Korunta. This text was imparted to Sri T. Krishnamacharya in the early 1900’s by his Guru Rama Mohan Brahmachari, and was later passed down to Pattabhi Jois during the duration of his studies with Krishnamacharya, beginning in 1927. This style of yoga codified and popularized by K. Pattabhi Jois during the 20th century which is often promoted as a modern-day form of classical Indian yoga. Sri K. Pattabhi Jois established the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute for teaching the specific yoga practice known as Ashtanga. The current style of teaching is called “Mysore style”.

ASHTANGA VINYASA PRIMARY SERIES
This Ashtanga Vinyasa Primary Series literally means yoga therapy. This when practiced regularly heals all sickness and purifies your body in preparation for deeper Yogic practice - both physical as well as meditative.
Ashtanga means 8 limbs of body and Vinyasa means breathing and movement system. For each movement, there is one breath. The purpose of vinyasa is for internal cleansing. Breathing and moving together while performing asanas makes the blood hot thus improve the circulation. Thick blood is unpurified and less tendency for prevention from disease. The combination of the asanas movement and breath make the blood circulate freely in the whole nerves systems. The heated blood also moves through all the internal organs removing impurities and diseases and toxin which are brought out of the body by the sweat.
The purified body will cleanse the nervous system, and then the sense organs. These first steps are very difficult and require many years of practice. By years of vinyasa practice accomplished, mind control comes automatically.
The posture, breathing technique and focus are always performed in conjunction with each other. Asanas purifies, strengthen and give flexibility to the body. Breathing is rechaka and puraka, which means inhale and exhale. Both the inhale and exhale should be steady and even, the length of the inhale should be the same length as the exhale. Breathing in this manner purifies the nervous system. Dristhi is the place where you look while in the asana. There are nine dristhis: the nose, between the eyebrows, navel, thumb, hands, feet, up, right side and left side. Dristhi purifies and stabilizes the functioning of the mind.
For cleaning the body internally two factors are necessary, air and fire. The place of fire in our bodies is four inches below the navel. This is the standing place of our life force. In order for fire to burn, air is necessary, hence the necessity of the breath. If you stoke a fire with a blower, evenness is required so that the flame is not smothered out, or blown out of control.
The same method stands for the breath. Long even breaths will strengthen our internal fire, increasing heat in the body which in turn heats the blood for physical purification, and burns away impurities in the nervous system as well. Long even breathing increases the internal fire and strengthens the nervous system in a controlled manner and at an even pace. When this fire is strengthened, our digestion, health and life span all increase. Rapid breathing will imbalance the beating of the heart and effect Autonomic Nervous System.
An important component of the breathing system is mula and uddiyana bandha. These are the anal and lower abdominal locks which seal in energy, give lightness, strength, energy to the body and help to build a strong internal fire. Without bandhas, breathing will not be correct, and the asanas will give no benefit. When mula bandha is perfect, mind control will be easy.
In the Yoga Shastra it is said that God dwells in our heart in the form of light, but this light is covered by six poisons: desire, anger, ignorance, greed, envy and dullness. The heat from this yoga practice for long period of time will burn away these poisons and shine our inner light.
Asthanga Yoga practice instructed one-on-one within the group class setting. In the evening, the students practice their own portion of the Ashtanga sequence of asanas at their own pace guided by the teacher individually by giving physical adjustments & verbal instruction.
In vinyasa, there is continuous breath from asana to asana and each asana given in sequential order which is connected from the previous one. In general, the next asana in the sequence should be taught only after obtaining stability in one's last asana. Each student is given a yoga routine according to their capacity level and eventually as they gain more strength, stamina, flexibility then additional asana is given to the student. All asanas should not be learned at once such as in a typical modern "led" yoga class.

ASANA PRACTICE SESSIONS: 200 Hour Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training in India
Asanas are yoga postures and the physical movements of yoga practice and, in combination with pranayama or breathing techniques constitute the style of yoga referred to as Ashtanga yoga. Traditionally asanas are positions, which make us fit and healthy in all the way. In the yoga sutra, Patanjali describes asana as a "firm, comfortable posture", referring specifically to the seated posture, most basic of all the asanas. Normally asanas will be held for an average of two or three minutes. Besides being held steadily they should also be held comfortably. No pain should be experienced while holding the posture or in the hours or days that follow. Hindu Shastras tell us of 84 lakhs asanas. A lakh being equal to 100,000, this brings the number of yoga postures to 8,400,000.
