The Ashtanga and Vinyasa styles of yoga have a few likenesses, however, they are, truth be told, unmistakable styles of yoga with some plausible contrasts.
Though you will have pranayama practices on each daily practice classes, you will specially have some classes dedicated to pranayama in which you will learn the following breathing techniques - anulom-vilom pranayama, Nadi-sodhan pranayama, shikari, ujjayi, Kapalabhati, etc. You will also have lectures on the philosophy of pranayama, philosophy of panch prana, and more.
While gaining an understanding of the goals and philosophy of yoga and having overviewed the practices that ancient yogic used to meet these goals, you will look at the same practices from the perspective of modern science. You will see how the effectiveness of yogic practices is explained in traditional, anatomical, and physiological terms.
This topic will also give you an understanding of safety during practice. Being aware of how the body works, what are the most vulnerable points, how diseases originate, and how they affect systems of the body, you will learn how to build the practice safely for all students and adapt it for specific needs.
Chanting has been an integral part of all religions through the ages. As you sit together with other participants in one place, you will have different thoughts. But when you start chanting, there is one thought and one rhythm in all your minds. All minds become one. This oneness creates profound energy that enlivens all.
The main philosophy of yoga is simple: mind, body, and spirit are all one and cannot be clearly separated. Yet there is a multitude of philosophical ideas developed by looking into the deeper dimensions of the body, mind, and spirit.
Bandha or a yogic lock enables a yogi to block and direct the flow of pranic energy in a certain way to change the energy pattern in the body. Bandhas not only modifies the flow of pranic energy through the nadis (energy meridians) but also modifies the flow of nerve currents in the nervous system and blood flow through the blood vessels.
The Sanskrit word, Mudra, is translated as gesture or attitude Mudras can be described as psychic, emotional, devotional, and aesthetic gestures or attitudes. They are a combination of subtle physical movements that alter mood, attitude, and perception which deepen awareness and concentration. In scientific terms, mudras provide a means to access and influence the unconscious reflexes and primal, instinctive habit patterns that originate in the primitive areas of the brain and around the brain stem. Mudras establish a subtle connection with these areas.
Those shatkarmas which effect purification of the body are secret. They have manifold, wondrous results and are held in high esteem by eminent yogis. (Hatha Yoga Pradipika 2:23) Yogic science gives as much importance to certain cleansing processes as it does to asana or pranayama. Without regular cleansing of the system, one cannot gain maximum benefit from yoga practices. Without purification of the body, one will not be ready for the higher practices of yoga.
Ayurveda means 'science of life'. It deals with each and every aspect of human life. Its first objective is to maintain health and happiness while the next is to manage and restore the status of health and productive state of mind. Ayurveda offers wonderful tools for a better lifestyle. It gives equal importance to your body, mind, and soul, therefore, it works with a holistic approach.
The most appropriate method to attain optimum health naturally is the system and science of yoga. Yoga is not only a series of physical postures or meditative practices. It is a lifestyle that can be lived by everyone, not necessarily those who are sannyasins, sadhus, or renunciates. It is a form of understanding, of realizing your interactions in life, trying to improve them, trying to understand the needs of the body, the needs of the mind, and also the needs of the spirit. This is the concept of a yogic lifestyle: living according to the laws of the body and the laws of nature.
