About

Ashtanga Yoga is an ancient system of Yoga that was taught by Vamana Rishi in the Yoga Korunta. This text was imparted to Sri T. Krishnamacharya in the early 1900’s by his Guru Rama Mohan Brahmachari, and was later passed down to Pattabhi Jois during the duration of his studies with Krishnamacharya, beginning in 1927.
There is a beautiful science to the Ashtanga system, which this tumblr is meant to celebrate.

Om
Vande gurunam caranaravinde
Sandarsita svatma sukhava bodhe
Nih sreyase jangalikayamane
Samsara hala hala mohasantyai
Abahu purusakaram
Sankhacakrasi dharinam
Sahasra sirasam svetam
Pranamami patanjalim
Om

yoga mudra — padmasana — utplutih

closing.

at the cusp of the lunar new year, i realize it is not about reaching ends nor breaching beginnings, but building the strength to keep transitioning through the constant shifts of our lives, year in year out.

ashtanga vinyasa yoga

bohemianyogi:

it was never about the asana. 

it was never about creativity or the expression of emotions, creating ‘new’ styles.

there is no goal or destination to reach.

it was always about supporting our practice of self realization, meditation and awareness. 

everything else is just a circus.
