Ashtanga yoga (or Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga) is a style of classical Indian yoga taught by Guru Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in the late 20th Century. This intense, energetic form of yoga involves acrobatic movements of the limbs and is the inspiration for the increasingly popular Power Yoga. Ashtanga translates into “eight limbs” (Ashta = eight, Anga = limbs), which stands for the eight limbs of the philosophy behind Ashtanga. The eight limbs of Ashtanga are Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana, and Samadhi. The first two limbs represent the moral observance that allows Ashtanga yogis to be in harmony with other beings in the universe, and in harmony with themselves, respectively. Once a yogi masters the first two limbs of Ashtanga, he or she may progress further into the other six limbs.
