À Propos / About

The practice of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is Mysore style, that is, the practitioner memorizes the sequence of yoga postures and practices independently.

 

However, Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is often misunderstood. Some examples are: No commitment and no proper breathing in the postures and Vinyasa - An exaggerated belief in the form and appearance of the postures and sequences - Useless movements in the postures and Vinyasa. All these aspects that make it no longer a conscious practice, but a neurotic mechanism out of habit, an escape from the moment, a non-comprehension of the actions, an inadequate and meaningless practice, and all this to reassure oneself in the name of the so-called tradition, when it is the intelligence that must be developed.

 

In this workshop, we will use a variety of perspectives to explain the myths, and at the same time let you experience the real meaning of "sthira-sukham-āsanam / Steady and comfortable is posture" in the Yoga Sutra II.46.

 

The key of right practice and the appropriate variations of an asana is to maintain the link between breath and body.  Via the breath we can be with the whole body and observe the unfolding of an asana.  Rather than struggling with the body in an asana, we monitor the asana with the number of breaths and the breath ratio (inhale, exhale) that is appropriate for us.  If the breath is smooth and has continuity, the asana will be beneficial.

 

"The person who taught me to vary and adapt the postures, as needed, is Krishnamacharya. Further, he also introduced the use of other aids or supports, so that the person gets the benefit of a posture through other means when he is not able to do the posture itself. This can involve sitting on a chair, using a roll, using supports, etc., the use of other means to help a person achieve certain results.”

– TKV Desikachar from lectures on ‘The Yoga of T Krishnamacharya’, given at Zinal, Switzerland 1981.
