Ashtanga Yoga (“eight-limbed yoga”; ashta=eight, anga=limb) is a system of yoga that emphasizes vinyasa: the synchronization of the breath with movement to produce inner heat, known as tapas, to purifiy the blood, detoxify the muscles and internal organs, and improve circulation. This style of yoga as it is practiced on the mat is also referred to as Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga but within the Ashtanga community of practitioners we simply say Ashtanga Yoga. The “eight limbs of Ashtanga” per se lead the path towards internal purification which is necessary for attaining self-realization. These eight spiritual paths or limbs are: Yama (moral codes), Niyama (self-purification and study), Asana (posture), Pranayama (breath control), Pratyahara (withdrawing the senses), Dharana (concentration), Dhyana (meditation), and Samadhi (meditative consciousness). Asana, the third limb, is known as Hatha Yoga. “Ha” means Sun, “Tha” Moon, and represent the search for balance in the union of opposing forces. All of the eight limbs are integral to the vinyasa practice, i.e. “ashtanga vinyasa yoga” and are the foundations for developing a strong yoga practice and guiding the practitioner while on the mat.
