Ashtanga

Ashtanga yoga is an ancient system of yoga that was taught by Vamana Rishi in the Yoga Korunta. Although many books on Yoga have been written, Vamana is the only one who has delineated a complete practical method. This text was imparted to Sri T. Krishnamacharya in the early 1900’s by his Guru Rama Mohan Brahmachari, and was later passed down to Pattabhi Jois during the duration of his studies with Krishnamacharya, beginning in 1927. […] The same method is still taught at the KPJAYI Krishna Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute to this day by Guruji’s grandson Sharath Jois and his mother Saraswathi Rangaswami Jois.
