History of Ashtanga Yoga:-

 

Ashtanga Yoga is the oldest form of yoga that was first invented by Vamana Rishi who later wrote details about it in “Yoga Korunta”, an ancient manuscript. According to this manuscript- “there is a list of different types of ‘asanas’, drishti, bandhas, mudras, and philosophy”.
The writings of “Yoga Karunta” were imparted to Sri. T. Krishnamacharya in the early 1900s by his tutor Guru Rama Mohan Brahmachari. These preachings were later passed down to Pattabhi Jois by Krishnamacharya in the year 1927. Since 1948, Pattabhi Jois has been teaching Ashtanga Yoga in India & across the world from his Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute.

 

What exactly is Ashtanga Yoga?

 

According to a book called “Yoga Sutras” written by Maharishi Patanjali, Ashtanga Yoga actually means ‘8-limbed yoga’. In Sanskrit, ‘Asht’ means 8 & ‘Ang’ means limbs. Thus, Ashtanga means 8 limbs. According to Maharishi Patanjali, it is a path of internal purification of revealing one’s universal self by following 8 spiritual practices. It is well-established and efficient tool to live a disciplined life that reduces one’s sufferings and helps in achieving self-realization.

Those 8 limbs of yoga as mentioned by Patanjali are- Yama (moral codes), Niyama (self-purification), Asana (posture), Pranayama (breath-control), Pratyahara (sense-control), Dharana (concentration), Dhyana (meditation) and Samadhi (absorption of self into the universe).
