What is Ashtanga Yoga? Video Ashtanga

Most of the people are familiar with the word Ashtanga and Hatha…even in india just we call yoga with this two names only…either hatha yoga or ashtanga yoga… ashtanga means… ashta means eight… anga means limbs or parts… so, the yoga which contained eight parts in it is ashtanga…the 8 parts are yama, niyama, asana, pranayama, pratyahar, dharana, dhyana, samadhi… so, this all 8 parts together called as Ashtanga yoga…

 

But usually people are thinking just practicing postures is yoga…just practicing postures in not yoga… so, practicing postures, breathing exercises and very important thing is meditation… so, practicing these all things including yama and niyamas.. in the beginning we have to give the yama niyamas…we have to follow the minimum dos and don’ts…we have to follow the minimum universal moralities in the beginning…and if you practice breathing exercises and meditation…slowly you will cultivate your  life and you will get hold on your  life…you will get control on your  mind…so you can follow…later you can follow all universal moralities and self-observances.. then you will become a perfect and responsible citizen in the society…so, practice yoga every day…
