Ashtanga yoga objective and distorted form

In reality Ashtanga Yoga which is also known as eight fold Raja Yoga noble path is mainly focused on progressing in meditation and achieving final liberation.

 
PRLog - Aug. 28, 2012 - Many people in the west are misguided and believe that Ashtanga Yoga means a series of physical demanding exercises taught in Mysore, India.

In reality Ashtanga Yoga which is also known as eight fold Raja Yoga noble path is mainly focused on progressing in meditation and achieving final liberation. The eight limbs of Raja Yoga or Ashtanga yoga path are:

(1)Yama or Eternal Vows/ self-restraint
(2)Niyama or Observances/ commitments to practice
(3)Asana or Hatha Yoga/ physical posture to develop healthy body which can develop ability to sit longer in meditation.
(4)Pranayama (Regulation of the breathing energy);
(5)Pratyahara (withdrawl of senses from objects);
(6)Dharana (concentration one pointedness of mind );
(7)Dhyana (meditation); and
(8)Samadhi (enlighten state)

Ashtanga yoga eight fold noble path and Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga from mysore are two different things.

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga from Mysore India is simply a distorted form of hatha yoga system with main focus on physical demanding gymnastic type exercises and while authentic Ashtanga yoga noble eight folds noble path main focus is on meditation.
