What is Ashtanga Yoga?

Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training In Goa
200 Hour Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training In Goa

The Astanga Yoga practice came form the Ancient book called Yoga Korunta.

In Ashtanga yoga, the concepts of Drishti, Vinyasa, and Dhyana play integral roles in the practice.

Drishti refers to the focused gaze or point of concentration during yoga postures. By fixing the eyes on specific points, such as the tip of the nose or the thumbs, practitioners cultivate a deep sense of presence and concentration, allowing the mind to become steady and focused. It helps to cultivate concentration, enhance mindfulness, and calm the mind.

On the other hand, the Vinyasa is the synchronized movement of breath and motion. It involves flowing from one posture to another while coordinating each movement with either an inhalation or an exhalation. The Vinyasa creates a seamless and dynamic flow, promoting internal heat, detoxification, and increased energy throughout the body. It also helps to build strength, flexibility, and stamina.

Dhyana, commonly known as meditation, is an essential component of Ashtanga yoga. It involves the practice of stilling the mind and observing one’s thoughts without judgment. Dhyana cultivates inner awareness, mindfulness, and a deep connection with oneself. Through regular meditation, practitioners can experience a profound sense of peace, clarity, and spiritual growth.

Overall, the integration of Drishti, Vinyasa, and Dhyana in Ashtanga yoga provides a holistic approach to physical, mental, and spiritual well-being, allowing practitioners to explore the depths of their practice and discover their true selves.
