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.

Very nice Kapotasana…! Practice, absolutely. Stay with it, accept the fluctuations, and one day it will come.
