What are Ashtanga Yoga Benefits? – Training Course
The Ashtanga Yoga is a style of yoga outlined by ancient sage Patanjali in his Yoga Sutra. Literally, Ashtanga yoga signifies “eight-limbed yoga” – ‘ashta’ means eight and ‘anga’ means limbs. The yoga includes eight steps postures, breathing exercise, concentration, and meditation. The Ashtanga Yoga includes eight sequential steps that guides and practices to create harmony between the body and mind.
Ashtanga Yoga, in particular, involves synchronizing the breathing with different postures. It is a process that produces intense heat within the body, leading to profuse perspiration that purifies the body. It also helps in detoxification of body muscles and organs. In Ashtanga Yoga, a series of postures is combined with rhythmic breathing to increase the intensity of the body-mind workout. The ultimate purpose is internal cleansing.
The eight branches of Ashtanga Yoga are Niyamas or Yamas, Asanas, Poses and Body posture, Breathing techniques called Pranayama to control the body and mind, Prathayahanra, which is the practice of senses withdrawal, Dharana, which is practicing concentration to calm the mind for meditation, and finally, the Samadhi as the bliss.
