Ashtanga Yoga is based on a specific series of asana (physical poses), always done in the same order, and combined with specific breathing patterns. Ashtanga Yoga can be physically demanding as the practice focuses on constant movement from one pose to the next.
The interpretation/translation of the Sanskrit term “ashtanga” is “eight limbs”. This is in direct reference to the eight limbs of yoga, explained in the philosophy of Patanjali. Ashtanga Yoga was developed by Krishnamacharya and furthered by his student Sri K. Pattabhi Jois.
