The 21st century is a stressful era, where tension and anxiety have a constant presence in daily lives. Mental strain can make one prone to deadly disorders and diseases, like coronary attacks, increased blood pressure, headaches, nausea, diabetes, and so much more. This makes a channel for releasing stress all the more important. And Ashtanga yoga is perhaps is the best and simplest method to achieve it.
Ashtanga yoga has been around since the Vedic age when sages indulged in ways to control the body and mind through breathing, posture and mindful activities. It is also known as Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga and was developed in the 20th century by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and T. Krishnamacharya. Developed from a form of Hatha Yoga having the eight-limbed path (hence Ashtanga), it involves flowing stances and movements in a dynamic sequence. It grew in popularity predominantly in Mysore region when Sri K. Pattabhi Jois set up Ashtanga yoga center for research and yoga teacher training India.
The underlying principles behind this Yoga technique are breath, drishti, vinyasa, bandhas, and daily practice. The postures need to be held for a certain number of breaths, usually, four to five, with the gaze or drishti focused at a particular point based on the stance being executed. Since Ashtanga yoga associates its stances with a particular number of breaths, it is called Vinyasa yoga. This requires the body to be locked in certain positions with controlled breathing, a process termed as bandhas. Of course, like any other exercise, Ashtanga yoga is recommended to be performed regularly, at least six days per week unless suffering from weakness or disease.
Training in yoga requires the practitioner to memorize a certain sequence of steps in order. During yoga classes, the trainer mainly encourages the learner to execute the steps at his own pace while he/she corrects postures and provides instructions on how to improve.
Ashtanga Yoga has acquired high interest and popularity as it has been proven to generate guaranteed results in combating stress and tension. Ashtanga yoga teacher training in India is a trendy career choice and many centers in south India like Mysore have become hotspots for 200-hour teacher training which is required to be registered with the Yoga Alliance. Most comprehensive courses teach Asanas, Asanas Methodology, Pranayama and Meditation, Yoga Philosophy, Anatomy etc. Kapalbhati, Bhastrika, Shithali, Shithkari and Bhramari ’Mysore Style’ are taught in the Pranayama classes. The courses are usually designed to develop inner discipline. In order to become an Ashtanga yoga trainer, all one needs is a desire to learn, diligence, patience to withstand six months or more of training and control over internal desires. Course completion grants one the ‘certified trainer’ tag and makes him/her eligible to teach yoga worldwide while spreading health and happiness.
