Ashtanga is a dynamic practice, involving interconnecting postures that create a sense of flow and movement between the static asanas of hatha yoga. Ashtanga yoga literally means “eight-limbed yoga,” as outlined by the sage Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras. According to Patanjali, the path of internal purification for revealing the Universal Self consists of following eight spiritual practices. Learn about these 8 limbs by practicing with us at Urban! Ashtanga practices incorporate the gaze (drsti), the breath (pranayama) and the energy “locks” (bandha) to build a powerful discipline for cultivating physical, mental and spiritual health. The practice cleanses, stretches and strengthens the body as well as focuses and calms the mind. With consistent practice, we realize a deeper experience of the self.
