Ashtanga

Hi and welcome to my blog and if you are new to Yoga and the sister science Ayurveda I will post about this more further on.

I practice Ashtanga, an eight limbed practice and this style has been practiced since thousands of years ago. In Ashtanga you practice asanas/poses that stretches your body and mind, among other things.

The eight limbs of Ashtanga

-Niyamas; external discipline

-Yamas; internal discipline

-Asanas;posture (meditation seat)

-Pranayama; breath control

-Pratayara; withdrawal of sences

-Dharana; concentration

-Dhyana; meditative absorption

-Samadhi; union, integration.

Yoga is among other things, a discipline, to make sure you always show up for yourself.

The asanas is one of the limbs, but I would say only 95% of the whole philosophy of Yoga. There is so much more as you can see!

I love this form of Yoga because it is challenging, fun and it makes you grow and you get to know your true self.

Love & Light//Angelica. ✨
