Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is a style of yoga as exercise popularized by K. Pattabhi Jois during the 20th century, often promoted as a modern-day form of classical Indian yoga. He claimed to have learned the system from his teacher, Tirumalai Krishnamacharya. The style is energetic, synchronizing breath with movements.
Finally, a book that is written for women about Ashtanga Yoga and how it relates to our unique mind and body. Ashtanga itself is gender-neutral, but the mindset and the practices that reside within the female anatomy and the flow of energy deserves a look at how it affects us more than it does in a gender-neutral explanation.
Ashtanga Yoga is a tough practice for the uninitiated. The book shows you the path that you need to take and how to process the difficulties that you may have heard about. It dives deeper into the practice and the theory. It shows you the mindset you should have to understand the most powerful practice known to our species.
Push through any discomfort that may exist because the pleasure that comes on the flip side is indescribable. It’s would be like trying to describe maple syrup to someone who has never tasted it. Prepare yourself to experience the power of a life-altering practice that is more than ten thousand years old, and to do it with the best possible mindset.
