Ashtanga yoga is an intensely physical and athletic kind of yoga. Ashtanga practice represents a set of precise series of poses done in sequential order, linked together with breath.
Ashtanga yoga literally means « eight-limbed yoga » and refers to the eight steps that basically act as guidelines on how to live a meaningful and purposeful life. These are moral and ethical guidelines, postures, breath work, sense withdrawal, concentration, and meditation limbs that are described in the Yoga Sutra.
I have discovered Ashtanga Yoga during me trip to Sri Lanka and after practicing it for several years I have decided to dedicate myself to this practice. I have followed the 200 hour teacher training guided by Linda Munro and Gérald Disse. I am very grateful to have such amazing teachers who have generously shared their knowledge and transmitted their passion about yoga as a lifestyle. Linda has studied with Ron Reid, Eddie Stern, David Swenson, and Gerald has spent 8 years travelling to Mysore learning from the Indian yoga master Sri K Pattabhi Jois himself, the founder of Ashtanga Yoga.
Having arrived to Costa Rica I have started the 300 hour teacher training with Marla Meenakshi Joy and Ron Reid who has studied with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and Sharath both in India and North America and was one of the first Canadian teachers to be authorized by Pattabhi Jois.
Now continuing my stay in Costa Rica in my turn I will be happy to share this incredible practice and all its physical and moral benefits with you!
