Asthanga Yoga is known as ‘the journey towards freedom’. The true miracle lies in self eagerness to allow, appreciate, and honor the uniqueness and the freedom of each sentient being to sing the song from the heart. Ashtanga comes from the words ‘ashta’ meaning eight and ‘anga’ that means limbs or steps. Ashtanga Yoga is a journey of eight steps towards self-freedom or Samadhi, which refers to ultimate mental and physical freedom. It is a dynamic form of yoga that emphasizes the harmonic connection of breath and movement. The poses in Ashtanga are always performed in the same order allowing students to learn the sequence and focus on the internal, meditative aspects of the practice.
