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.

Had another amazing yoga sesh last night! My teacher, Allison, has such a beautiful positive energy about her. It’s a nice environment to be in and also because she is just so pretty to look at. A woman can admire another woman’s beauty right? I came into the class having too much negative energy and frustration and I was able to come out of the class exhausted but filled with positive energy. Opening my heart out in every class I take is a simple, yet complex task. To be open minded and let go of everything and focus in the moment is hard, but also very rewarding. Never stop learning and pushing yourself, you never know what will come out of it. Namaste

One who sees all living entities as spiritual sparks, in quality one with the Divine, becomes a true knower of things. Such a person no longer experiences illusion or anxiety.

mmm…looks peaceful :)
