About Yoga and Ashtanga Yoga

Yoga is the combination of physical, mental and spiritual healing practice meant to render our mind steady, our body stronger and purified, through daily dedication.

Ashtanga Yoga is a yogic philosophy compiled before 400 AC by Sage Patajanli into the Yoga Sutras (Aphorisms) based on older traditions. He explained the eight (ashtau) limbs (Anga) of Yoga describing them as: Yama (ethic rules to follow), Nyama (virtuous habits and behaviours), Asana (postures), Pranayama (Breath control and retention), Pratyahara (retracting the sensory experience), Dharana (concentration, introspective focus), Dhyana (meditation), Samadhi (spiritual contemplation).

Physical benefits are many and easy to recognize already after the practice. Heat created by practising regenerates and clean your body from toxins accumulated. Daily and steady practice will result into stamina and lightness in your body.

Determination, discipline, effort and awareness are crucial for our physical and spiritual growth. Knowing that the yogic journey is personal and intimate, we learn to trust, listen to our internal voice, find within ourselves the seeds which are ready to become blossoming flowers.
