With AshtangaNews.com, we aim to follow and publish news about Ashtanga yoga and its practitioners. By Ashtanga yoga, we mean the Ashtanga vinyasa yoga system as taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore India.
Vinyasa refers specifically to the flow of movement connected to the breath in between yoga postures, or asana. If you are looking for information on the classical system of Ashtanga yoga, you are probably looking for the Eight Limbs. As so often is the case, the Wikipedia article is a good place to start.
Annie Pace‘s Ashtanga Yoga in the Tradition of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois succintly explains both the Eight Limbs and Asana. This article has been approved by Sri K. Pattabhis Jois.
Philippe Alexis and Tracy Rabold started AshtangaNews. They live and practice in the San Francisco Bay Area.
I’ve been on the Internet and practicing yoga for more than 12 years, and this site is a combination of these two passions for me.
When I’m not practicing yoga, I run a company which develops, no diamonds web services.
I am an enthusiastic yogini who started practicing Ashtanga in 1999. After a career in finance, I decided to join San Francisco’s current trend, the Internet. I love writing and yoga, and this is a perfect way to combine them.
