WHAT IS ASHTANGA TRISTHANA YOGA?
Updated: Aug 7, 2020
HARMONIZING BODY-MIND AND SPIRIT
Despite all the distractions that manifest in life, the Ashtanga Yoga method offers the opportunity to practice THE RELEASE of these distractions and focus the mind on a single point on the way to self-discovery.
When you deploy your mat today, release your expectations, release your judgments. Immerse yourself in the essence of the Tristhana method; continuously attracting your mind and your senses to the breath, the look, and the postures.
ASHTANGA Tristhana Yoga can be enjoyed by everyone, regardless of their age, physical condition or yoga experience. You can start at a Therapeutic level to establish a solid basis for the development of a practice that can evolve continuously throughout life.
This method can be adapted to the aspirations of each student individually, whether to begin a yoga practice, deepen, or expand an established practice.
Tristhana is the Sanskrit term that describes the 3 places of attention and action:
POSTURES * BREATHING * ATTENTION
When performed together, they form the essential elements of yoga practice and cover the 3 levels of purification:
* BODY * NERVOUS SYSTEM * MIND
The 3 places of attention and action (Tristhana) can turn a physical exercise into a spiritual practice.
Yoga practiced in this way, with intention and purpose, ensures a profound effect of strengthening, rejuvenation, healing and revitalization throughout the physiology, unlocking and unleashing the true potential that is within.
