Although Ashtanga Yoga is the eight-folded path of yoga, it has also been developed into a specific yoga tradition which covers all aspects of yoga within any other yoga tradition, and which is sometimes also called Patanjali Yoga since it is based on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali (400 B.C ).
The specific yoga tradition of Ashtanga Yoga is a dynamic form of Hatha Yoga. It is a practice which is made up of six different series in total: Primary, Intermediate, and the four Advanced series. A series is s made up of a set sequence of asanas practiced for five breaths at a time, usually applying the uyajji breath (ocean’s breath). Each series builds up on the last – progressing to more advanced postures. The fact that the sequences are set makes it ideal for people who like routine Once practitioners become familiar with the sequence, they can interiorize their attention and not have to focus it externally to find out which pose comes next. Moreover, the progression of each series upon the previous one makes it ideal for people who enjoy developing and improving their practice. Ashtanga Yoga instructors are trained to personalize the practice for every yogi in the class according to their respective level.
In the Ashtanga tradition, you will find two styles of teaching: led and Mysore. Led classes are led by an instructor the whole way through, whereas in Mysore classes practitioners do their practice at their own pace, while the instructor is there to advice, assist, and support with adjustments.
