If you're looking for a new fitness routine to challenge your body and your mind, Ashtanga yoga may be worth a try. Today, the name Ashtanga generally refers to a specific flow of postures, in a specific order: Each class follows this same sequence of poses, with an emphasis on breath and gaze to help deepen the practice.
Ashtanga means "eight-limbed," and traditionally the term refers to a yoga practice that includes all eight limbs: yama, niyama, asana, pranayama, pratyahara, dharana, dhyana, and samadhi. Together, these limbs encompass the entire yogic philosophy -- from morals and ethics to physical movement and breathing to meditation and enlightenment.
