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 PRACTICE

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.

THE BENEFIT

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.

THE METHODOLOGY

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


divider

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.

200 Hour Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training in India: Meditation Practice Sessions

divider

Despite all its popularity, today very few of us truly know what meditation is. Some regard meditation is the mental concentration on something; others consider that we meditate when we imagine something that gives us peace or satisfaction. All these methods are being with one goal to slow down and, eventually, completely stop the incessant activity of our minds. These exercises are not really meditation they are substitutes for meditation because it is normally very difficult to stop your mind altogether. In reality, meditation is a state of thoughtless awareness. The real meaning of meditation is transforming our mind. By engaging in a particular meditation practice you learn the patterns and habits of your mind, and the practice offers a means to cultivate new, more positive ways of being. With regular work and patience, these nourishing, focused states of mind can deepen into profoundly, peaceful and energized states of mind.

200 Hour Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training in India: Mantra Chanting & Keertan Practice Sessions

The word mantra has two parts; man, which is the root of the Sanskrit word for the mind; and tra, which is the root of the word instrument, means an instrument of the mind, a powerful sound or vibration that you can use to enter a deep state of meditation. A combination of certain codified sounds is a mantra. The correct chanting of mantras under the guidance of Siddha (Guru) brings about the manifestation of thoughts & desires, and even of devs & devis. It is originated from Ved, which was written by Lord Brahma. The teachings of the Vedas consist of various mantric chants or hymns cognized by different seers or rishis from the cosmic mind. The body gets an effect from mantras. It keeps away from all the diseases and negative energy.

Yoga Philosophy

divider

The main philosophy of yoga is simple: mind, body and spirit are all one and cannot be clearly separated. Yet there is a multitude of philosophical ideas developed by looking into the deeper dimensions of the body, mind and spirit. Yoga is a set of spiritual practices but in itself is not an institutionalized religion, per se. Hinduism is related to yoga through a common recognition of the Vedas as an authoritative source, and both Buddhism and Jainism share many of the core values of the yoga tradition. But classical yoga is best understood as a system of spiritual practice, rather than a particular religion.

Ayurveda

Ayurveda or Ayurvedic medicine is a system of traditional Hindu medicine native to the Indian subcontinent. Contemporary practices derived from Ayurvedic traditions are a type of alternative medicine. Ayurveda is a discipline of the upaveda or "auxiliary knowledge" in Vedic tradition. The origins of Ayurveda are also found in the Atharvaveda, which contains 114 hymns and incantations described as magical cures for disease. Since then Ayurveda has stood for the wholesome physical, mental and spiritual growth of humanity around the world. Today, it's a unique, indispensable branch of medicine, a complete naturalistic system that depends on the diagnosis of your body's humours - vata, pitta and kapha - to achieve the right balance.

Yoga Anatomy & Physiology

Yoga Anatomy is a study of the Subtle currents of energy that moves through the layers of three bodies. The Ancient yogi held the view that we actually have three bodies; Physical, Astral and Causal. Asana practice is a way of imposing order on the human system and use the poses in a proper alignment. We don't live to do Yoga but we do yoga in a proper way and proper sequencing so that we may live a healthy life. Basically, Yoga Anatomy comprises of breathing excercises, muscular and skeletal adjustment as well as correcting improper body alignment. Yoga Anatomy is a valuable resource that allows you to see each movement in an entirely new light. This approach will lead you logically through a wealth of musculoskeletal anatomy, bring the academic discourse to life, and permit you to understand the body's architecture and work with its safety.

Kriya most commonly refers to a "completed action", technique or practice within a yoga discipline meant to achieve a specific result. Another meaning of kriya is an outward physical manifestation of awakened Kundalini, such as a spontaneous body movement related to kundalini energy flow. Kriya Shakti is "a power of thought", said to be greatly studied by yogis. The Purity of body encourages purity of the mind. Yoga has developed six cleansing techniques or shat kriyas for purification of the physical body. Through these simple exercises, nature is assisted in the elimination of waste products and mucus. Many mental and physical ailments may be alleviated through the practice of kriyas.
