Ashtanga Yoga

Ashtanga Yoga

Ashtanga Yoga is a school of yoga best known by the practice of K. Pattabhi Jois during the 20th century. K. Pattabhi Jois claimed to have learnt the system from his teacher, Tirumalai Krishnamacharya. Ashtanga yoga is a type of strong and dynamic yoga, which synchronizes movement with breathing (vinyasa), through a series of postures (asanas) following a specific order. In this way, each asana prepares us for the next.
