Ashtanga Yoga is a system of yoga transmitted to the modern world by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009). This method of yoga involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of postures—a process producing intense internal heat and a profuse, purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind.
The main benefits of Ashtanga are:
- Makes you stronger, lighter, and more flexible.
- Improves your balance, strengthens your muscles, and increases your consciousness.
- Cleanses your body from within.
